    Its pretty clear to me that this whole scenario is an allegory for the youths of the modern era (millennials). Since no youth pays for entertainment in the modern medians, so they end up pirating. Hence the pirates part. Before the information age began, the youths went to do all sorts of magically things such as being "not too good at ping-pong" or even throwing one's mashed potatoes against the wall. The song is a truly sad, and heart wrenching tale of how free, pirated entertainment through the modern medians has turned all the youths into a bunch of worthless leeches sucking on the blood of society. Soon we shall all become worthless "pirates who don't do anything". Living in a world where we are expected to do, feel, and experience nothing. The future predicted of the song is a bleak one to say the least. I hope everyone can take this lesson from Larry the Cucumber to help us stop the inevitable inner societal doom that has been predicted.
