Black beard was the too obvious choice, so I went for Silvery.

I voted for Cap'n Morgan (Sir Henry Morgan). He was really a "privateer" who operated under letters of marque from the British. So, he was not really considered to be a right pirate except to his victims. He was, however a heavy drinker and, as pointed out earlier, how appropriate to have a brand of spirit named after you! Too bad his decendants don't get royalties!

Awesome, maybe - drunk, certainly - camp, undeniably

But Pastafarian? I'm not sure about that.

Aye BS that be a true story as ye can see from this picture:

The rest of the crew survived for months by gnawing on a huge sausage from Big Ron's Butchers...in the picture they think they're about to be recued but it turned out to be The Black Spot cast adrift in an open boat!

Aye Bart. I's seen a few things whilst cast adrift in an open boat.

I remembers the death o' Captain Cook; if ye look at this picture ye'll see Cook wavin' frantically at me to let 'im aboard me boat. Well, me an' me loyal officers didn't want another mouth to feed on board.

If ye look closely, ye'll see me aiming a gun at the blaggard to keep 'im away.

Arrrrrrr....poor old James Cook. Walktheplank very nearly met the same fate...fortunately he managed to escape by throwing a wild boar and one of his best wigs at the natives to distract em whilst he made his escape:

Saved by a Boar...tis ironic really when ye thinks of his Far fetched tales.
