Long ago there was famous pirate known as Captain Butts.
He and his crew of misfits sailed the seas in search of treasure. One day they found a treasure that outshined all others. To protect their newly found, delicious prize, they decided to bury it on an uncharted island. As the pirates sailed into the lagoon on the island, they startled a dragon who flew into a tree which jarred an egg out of it’s nest. It then rolls down the mountain face creating a rock slide, which releases a wave of water down the waterfall. The rush of water forces the anchor to fall off the pirates’ ship. The sheer weight of the anchor pulls the ship down allowing an cannonball to roll free. The rolling cannonball then strikes a barrel which forces a mini cannon ball down a gang plank. The mini cannonball scares a rat which makes him scurry down the ship. The terrified rat jumps the ship, but hits a protruding cannon along the way causing it to tip, releasing a third cannonball. This cannonball impacts a pile of crates busting loose a large stolen artifact to roll to the back of the ship, which frees the gangplank onto the beach. The gangplank hitting the beach, jars the palm tree causing a coconut to fall to the ground. The coconut impacts the beach which distracts a group of nearby pirates. The distracted pirates drop the treasure they were unloading allowing it to roll freely down a hill. The treasure impacts a tree making it fall over. The falling tree makes a gust of wind which releases the first sail on the ship which makes the other two to unravel and flare open. The final sail pulls free a rope that was tied to the island. A cannonball that was holding the rope down is now free and comes rolling down the cliff. Then the cannonball strikes the handle used to open the heavy treasure chest with just enough force to fling it open. When the pirates see the chest is finally open, they then disengage the trapdoor holding in the delectable treasure allowing it to flow into the chest. The pirates have finally protected their most valued possession, until the next group of misfits come along to steal the treasure for themselves.
