What about when the pirates ride the seahorses?

They NEED those spurs!

Oh, and I would HATE a musket ball in a pirate.

Pyrates who think that Cuervo Gold is a premium tequila :rolleyes:

Nah! I don't really hate pyrates like that. But I do feel that it's

my duty to educate them (lol).

I hate those that hate pirates.

Woodes Rogers, for one.

Ah Woodes Rogers, my hero! Him and Benjamin Hornigold

This is mostly an SCA thing. But I am not found of people who have a persona

where they were born into Danish royalty, kidnapped by Russians, stolen by gypsies,

ran away to join a traveling troupe of actors, then became pirates that were captured

and sold into slavery by the Spaniards, then they escaped and became Anglo Samurais,

that went on to invent television after they became vampire vegetarian Wiccans that

intermarried with Norse-Klingon acrobats.

Know who I'm talking about?

At first I didn't laugh, but as it progressed into absurdity, I couldn't stop laughing. Yes. I know the type. Best to come from humble beginings and to have stories of bad luck, fair luck, and good luck in honest proportions.

How about pirates who feel the need to play a clavichord, Im just praticing so far. I hear they can be a PITA to build . . .

Sorry Shay, yes Im going to build you the clavichord and Im going to try not to complain too much.

I don't think that anyone can object to a clavichord - no one can hear it!tongue.gif

At least mine is pretty quiet, even when played in a small room.

:blink: (<---I love that one!)

If you love that one, you would've loved the old version. It was Mission's favorite smilie as I recall.

Ah, yes, Phydeaux. It looked like a damned dog panting. Many people abused poor Phydeaux, using him to represent concupiscence when he, in fact (according to Paul - who I believe made him) didn't.

Does anyone here LIKE Woodes Roger?

- That pirate hunting exiling ****** . . .

(He's the one that took over New Providence and drove off all active pirates, then hunted them down (or had their former coulegues do it for him.)

I like the guy immensely. He's the reason I get to go to the Bahamas each year on the government's dime. A right good egg in my book.

Funny you should mention him, I just found my photoshopped art for my Quaker Oats pirate avatar from a few years back.

I hate the pirates who leave a story in the middle of the thread and dissapear into Davy Jones' Locker without notice. If you got sick of us and want to get marrooned on a desert island, tell us at least... and take care to finish your thread / story first!

And I also hate those who come to write but they don't want to make any research at all, and you can find wedding photos and pianos in their stories... hello, they weren't invented yet in 1700s!

"Bouzouki? Where is a bouzouki?" I'd love a serenade! I'd even translate for you into English the verses of old Greek songs for this!

Oh, that was a Monty Python reference:

. How it relates to a clavichord in my mind could take years to explain and cost millions of lives.

(That's an Animal House reference.)

Was having this very discussion with a promoter the other day. We decided that we don't really like (Hate is such a harsh word) pirates who do the eat and drink thing too much. If you did all of that at sea you'd get sick and weak and prime picking for other ships and crewmates. The promoter was looking at it from a 'what is the aspects we can sell to the families and what shouldn't we influence the kids with.' I was looking at it as 'who do I want on board when the other ship comes after us.' Both very valid points and reasonings.

Being a blend of PC and Hollywood I tread lightly on the subject. I don't mind the sparrow comments. I enjoy it when kids point me out and say "Jack Sparrow, mommy". I won't dog on people for not being PC because well I love my bucket boots. What kinda irks me though is the constant ahrr's I get. There is nothing really that can be done about it though because it is really the first thing that comes to mind with most people and pirates, so I just the subject lay.

Pirates friends: I am the person who started this nasty thread way back. "hangs head in shame" I have regretted it ever since. Your comments about supporting the pirate community and helping new people enter the hobby are the true essence of this site. Posters like Patrick Hand, Mission, Capt. Sterling, and others have all voiced some great complaints about this post. This topic was my fault and it was a bad idea.

Will you forgive me or am I to be left on a desert island with a pistol and one shot?

I'll forgive you if you are stranded on a dessert island.

No need for the pistol and shot, I'll have the lemon meringe pie.

Pirates...god love 'em.

Even the Acrobat/Klingon hybrid ones....
