Accurate depiction of pirates??

Postby will1420 » Tue Dec 05, 2006 4:37 pm

Hello all,

I would like to extend a question out to all the pastafarian experts out there.

I am currently designing a book award for a children's literature class and I would like to make a FSM award of sorts. Part of the criteria for my award will be for the accurate portrayal of pirates... How should I define this field?? Any more ideas for criteria?

Praise to the Noodly Master!

well, correct me if i'm wrong, but from what i hear, the European sailors depicted pirates as ruthless, plundering barbarians, but as FSM puts it, pirates were actually quite kind, and gave candy to children.

Well, pirates are a kind peoples, who love to have a jolly old time. They plunder in order to finance their "Happy Children" Campaign, to put it simply. They want to make every child in the world happy. So, they use their plunderings to buy candy for all children, and give it to them on Halloween.

They also use this money to buy grog, so that they would not be bored while picking the candy and would choose different kinds.

Also, the idea that they "wench" is a misinterpretation: They really allow everyone to have a good time, including women that they hurt in their plundering. This also improves the general mood of the crew, which allows them to be jollier all the time!

I hope this helps scratch the surface of Piratism. Thank you.
During the Space Race, American astronauts were faced with the problem that ink from their pens would not stay on the pentip.
After spending millions of dollars and a few years in research, they came up with the ballpoint pen. This solved the problem.

The Soviets, faced with the same problem, used a pencil.

He isn't a real pirate, he is only a steryotypical (spelling?) version of one.
