Hexillent research thar matey...ere be anuvver storee regardin thee terrible Cap'n Cronan:

The Shadow of Cronan

There be but one name that strikes fear into the heart o' any pirate - the name o' Cap'n Cronan. 'Ee were not feared fer his evil ways, nor his vile temper. 'Ee were not e'en feared for his ghastly appearance. No, 'ee were feared fer 'is ability to send even the most seaworthy craft straight to the bottom.

Cap'n Cronan were from a long line o' seafarers. It seemed like every maritime disaster in history 'ad a Cronan onboard. From the first time a neolithic man overturned his hollowed out log, to the sinkin' o' the Titanic, ye could guarantee that a Cronan were involved somewhere.

I recalls a story when Cap'n Cronan captured a vessel in the North Atlantic. The boardin' party took the ship, slaughtered everyone, an threw the bodies o'er the side. This were the standard practice of Cap'n Cronan's crew.

Everything were goin' well until Cap'n Cronan decided he wanted to go aboard his prize. When Cap'n Cronan set foot on the captured ship, the crew were filled wi' terror. Any ship that Cap'n Cronan set foot on - apart from 'is own ship o' course - were destined fer Davey Jones' Locker. The crew immediately launched the lifeboat an abandoned the captured ship.

The crew's relief were short lived though. Cap'n Cronan wondered what were happening, so he jumped in the lifeboat too. Five seconds later, the lifeboat sank an drowned the lot o' them - except Cap'n Cronan who managed to drift ashore by clingin' on to a passin' beercrate.

The captured ship drifted away, silent an crewless. It were called the Marie Celeste.

The blessing of original pirate flag from XVIIIth century:
Image
En mateno de hela ero, per la forĉo de espero, venas viglaj pastafaroj, vere fluganta gefratoj.
Ah, vi flugu, Nia Monstro! Vin observas milionoj serĉiantaj vermiĉeloj, per espero kaj per amo.
Kaj la bona pastafaro post la malfermita pordo, trovos la eternan vivon en pastafara paradizo!
Pastafarier aller Länder, vereinigt euch!
Българска пастафарианска църква (Bulgarian Pastafarian Church)
- за прослава на Макаронения Бог :worship: :fsm_float:
