How big is a Ship??

Postby MonkeysInACan on Sat Apr 26, 2008 11:42 pm

I'm posting this in "Pirate Discussion" since when i posted it under "all things FSM" I only got one response after about a week.... Plus it probably should have been in here in the first place.

Moving on!
How large do you think a boat has to be to be called a "Ship" for a Pastafarian's needs? Can it be any sea worthy vessel or does it have to be a full size Galleon? :fsm_yarr:

It must be large, or at least based on a large one. For example, a bathtub galleon is still a ship.

Well if it doesn't possess kitty litter, I won't be scratching around in the soil trying to dig a hole.

Seriously, I only steal large ships, as there is simply not enough booty in the cargo holds to keep me interested otherwise.
