But the write-up gives the excuse that it was changed to tie in with a 'pirate theme'.
Replacing 'drunken' with 'grumpy' should have been unnecessary, the scansion and emphasis remains the same.

Sounds to me like someone who's been caught out trying to invent a plausible excuse for their political correctness!
