First of all, YARRGH!
I am astonished upon sailing into these boards and not detecting the presence of every pirates way of proving oneself - The Insult Swordfighting. You scalliwags should be firing insults and clever comments at each other like a pirate ship that has just encountered a rich governor at sea.
In Monkey Island, Insult Swordfighting consists of a series of Call and Response exchanges, in which an insult must be countered with a witty retort. Should the responder counter with an appropriate retort, they win the right to call the next insult; fail to respond, and the caller gains an advantage. Win enough of these exchanges, and the duel is won.
The basic rules, as put forth by Him
1)Yarr.. when one pirate insults thee, your reply should be clever enough to silence his tongue. (MI1)
2)The most noble of pirates, sworn prophets of Him finishes the retort with a rhyme, further degrading their opponent. (MI3)
3)When ye win a battle, seize your adversary's booty. Head over to Kenny Falmouth's cannon outlet to get the Level 7 Destructomatic T-47 with Autoloader and Fax Modem
4)The victorious pirate may present a new insult, or pass it on to his matey.
5)If no pirate claims victory within 24 hours, thus falling prey to the insult, a new pirate may step up to the line and present their insult.So in the name of Him , I hereby declare the FSM League of Insult Swordfighting officially opened!
To get things started, I present the basic insult as taught by Captain Smirk:
