Aye, and be the feared Blind Beard the Pirate!

Beware, he can't tell who he's swingin' his cutlass at!

Thanks for the advice, I shal take it all unto consideration (I really doubt thats a proper way to use unto, ahwell).

My plans of doing this while sticking to my charatistic cheap bastardly ways are beginning to unravel. Perhaps I can't be a total cheap bastard, but I can be a moderately cheap bastard.

And I love the idea of Blind Beard the pirate. That strikes me as a good room clearing tool.

It all kind of went downhill from there.

Just use the Portholes 2000 spellcheck...although it does tend to put YAARRR and Avast before everything! I'm getting fed up with the little desktop Cutlass with eyes that keeps popping up and saying things like: Ahoy...do ye want me to help ye pillage or are ye sure ye wants to bury yer treasure there.

Ye be lucky. If ye use Portholes XP ye get a little hook wi' eyes prancin' around the screen. "Hello," it says. "It looks like you're writing a ransom note."

It's at this point I loses me rag.

Six new screens already this week.

I went and bought meself an eypatch of uncommon quality, but the package sez that it be a 'delux' eyepatch. So, sez I....what makes an eyepatch delux?
42 and FSM must have a connection somewhere. Perhaps He has 42 noodly appendages?

delux means that it has silk or some such on it maybe some fancy stitchin or special memory elastic cord

also it is probably not used- many new shipmates have to borrow an eyepatch from an older more experinced pirate when they first need one so it is always nice to have a nice new unused one-

it might also be made of special stain resistant fabric- so one doesn't get spag sauce stains while learning to eat one eyed and all- eating one eyed is tricky at first- the trick in to tilt the head and aim for just below the nose

and thanks to Auntie for the tips of safety- and might I add
NEVER steer the boat while wearin more than one eyepatch- not even if your parrot is sober and swears he can tell you what to do

YYYAARRR...it be amazin the fine sea farin advice ye can get on these pages. That reminds o me ex First mate Blind Pew...he swore he could steer the ship by his sense o smell alone. Arter 6 weeks stuck in Portsmouth Harbour I had to give him the sack!

The Portsmouth(NH) lighthouse is supposedly haunted- blind pew could work there as a tour guide- and he wouldn't be afraid of the spooks as he wouldn't be able to see them.

Grog Mist

Postby black bart on Tue Aug 22, 2006 7:06 am

YYAARRR...It be a terrifyin scenario when the thick fog comes down and ye can only see the dark ghostly shapes of ships floatin by...is it The Royal navy huntin ye down? Is it Big Ron after a large curry and a session in The Dribblin parrot? Is it Capn Cronan?

No ye've been on the grog all night again! :D
