The Birdseed of Consolation

In which Jack and Stephen demonstrate the myth of the squirrel-proof birdfeeder.

No mere ice storm will deter them from their task.

Ever eager to take a prize, Jack contemplates the best way to board, climbing the mast...

...and eventually he succeeds in leaping aboard.

Perhaps he can find a way to bring down the rigging!

But no! And the damned cabin is shut to him!

So he tries the ever-popular amphibious invasion strategy.

Meanwhile Stephen collects the treasures that fall free...

...until it's his turn to climb the mast.
And they live happily ever after.
The end.
