Hence why Captain Jack Sparrow might seem a little ambiguous regarding sexuality.

Of course we know that Pirate ships were never like Prisons (it goes against what Piracy is ABOUT). But do you think its common for Pirates to be bisexual? Or is it desperation? "Cabin boy! Drop your pants and bring me the rum!"


Homosexuality among pirates was punished by marooning.

Bad news, that.


Actually, that's another piece of slanderous propaganda disseminated by the Church to discredit Pastafarianism. :)

Sometimes, I wonder if some of us actually believe this nonsense...

Entertainment

AAARRRR, it be true that tension builds up on any ship over a Long Voyage. It be up to the Cap'n to maintain discipline or to have plenty o hentertainment on board. There be Sea Shanties, dancin the Hornpipe (I never calls em Hornpipes though cos it contains the word Horn), watercolour washes for beginners, Etruscan Pottery studies, Needlework, Aerobics, Advanced Fashion Design & Haut Couture, The Capn's Big Musical Night (YYAARRR we've only got the one film though: South Pacific) and when things really get a bit tense and sweaty I sets up a Ballroom Dancin competition with gorgeous sequinned outfits all round. Thems that volunteer ta be the lady partners gets the best outfits. It all takes their mind off the fact that they aint had a **** in years!

yarr what sort o ship do yer run Bart if yer swabs as toime to git bored. On me ship when we wern't pillaging, plundering an murdering the scum of the seven seas then I ad me crew scrub the decks, maintain the rigging and plug the leaks in the hold. If they as toime to whistle a sea shanty, read a treasure map or ogle a wench then they were thrown overboard.

Several years ago I read The Black Spot's guide 'How to be a nasty scumbag Pirate Cap'n so that every blaggard hates yer guts' Cruel Love e calls it and essential reading if yer want to survive at sea without a cultlass in yer guts.
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and goodwill shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

I didn't catch the rest o' it coz someone was shovin' a bargain bucket o' Cap'n Sanders chicken feet in batter down 'is throat.

Boring

Postby black bart on Tue Jun 26, 2007 8:32 am

AAARRRR, he don't ave a lot o luck that Tai-Pin fellar. He were booked ta give a speach on 'Historical Pirates in the Golden age of Piracy' at the Guild Hall in London. He was dressed in his Sunday Best and had his speach all layed out on the finest parchment. All the top City Business men and dignitaries were there. He got 2 paragraphs into his introduction and the Lord Mayor shouts out: "When are ye goin ta tell us about Big Brenda ya borin git!"

Well he obviously didn't know about knockin shops or Brenda (which are one in the same really). Both Spot and I asked him and he got all hoity toity wifs us. His esteemed career went down quite quickly after that.

(See The Sticky - The Best of Pirates Year 1, for those who don't haves a clue what we are talkin about)

Just goes to show, ifs yer don't know your offshore recreational activities, you be in big trouble.
