Spalpeen

Postby black bart » Mon Oct 01, 2007 6:52 am

Spalpeen = A scamp; an Irish term for a good-for-nothing fellow; - often used in good-humored contempt or ridicule.

This Pirate thread is a veritable seat of learning!

FSB: Festering Stupid Blaggards often found on Pirate Forums, beware these individuals know nothing about piracy.
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.

Long Winded Taleitis: Seafaring ailment causing drowsiness and the urge to jump over the side in a storm...one of the main carryers being Walktheplank, avoid him if he sais the words: "It were a dark and stormy night..."

Over Postitis - The urge to post on every thread at all costs even though only 1 post in 20 may be remotely interesting. This ailment affects many but particularly the pirate known as Black Bart.

Toothless Kate - old hag, chief petty officer, enforcer, debt collector and Tanguerra's personal bodyguard and theatrical agent. Once she were a beautiful Tahitian Princess (or would a been, had she been born on the right side of the blanket). After takin' a position as wet-nurse to baby Tanguerra, she were hopelessly led astray and before long fell into piratical ways. A long and adventurous life and much exposure to foul weather has made her what she is today. (She were always in possession of a foul temper)

Sanchez - Cabin Boy on the Purple Primrose. A dab hand with a feather duster and well able to run up a dress at short notice, though he be only 17. Blindly devoted to Tanguerra and an excellent giver or foot massages and bringer of cups of cocoa after a long hard day of swaggerin' about and showin' off. Never buy him a drink in the tavern as he has no head fer liquor and is somewhat inclined ter begin fights what he has no ability to bring to a successful conclusion. Ye'll have Tanguerra (and Kate) ter answer to if any harm should befall a hair on his golden head. A good cabin boy is very hard ter find and he's got a couple years left in him yet before I have ter trade him in for a younger one.
Aaarrrrgggh!

One Eyed Nick - The randiest rat that ever lived and personally responsible for 3000 offspring currently running riot in the bilge of Dave L's ship. Nick is slowly losing his sight in his one eye and adds weight to the old saying that to much of the other makes one go blind.
