It's a gas, gas, gas!
1) If the pirates looked like that, I suspect the crew would not have bothered to retake the ship.2) Trouble with today's pirates is they don't swashbuckle anymore. Back in my day, they swashbuckled.
After Jak-El heard them talking about pirates on NPR on the car radio last night, I had a long weird conversation with the kids about the fact that yes, pirates are real, but they don't have eye patches and parrots and go "arrragh" al the time.
YES! More swashes should be buckled! And more buckles should be swashed! Or something.
Righty-o, Lois! If they kept busy buckling their swashes and making their hair look like Johnny Depp's we wouldn't be in this pickle. Plus: Parrot grooming. Pirates need hobbies like that to keep their moods light.(It was also better when they wore those thigh-high swashbuckly boots--they couldn't run as fast.)
"they don't have eye patches and parrots and go "arrragh""AWWWW LOIS! Next you'll be telling me there's no Santa!
I need an eyepatch!

Sparkle,"we wouldn't be in this pickle."Are you making a reference to "pickle pirates?"
Pirates are angry folk. With most modern vessels made of metal or some space-age polymer, there are no timbers left to shiver.
Hi, Barney! Yep. That is exactly what I mean. Pickle Pirates! Where is Possible Possum when we need him most?http://www.bcdb.com/cartoon_synopsis/19816-Pickle_Pirate.html
Exactly, Maddog: The roger is no longer jolly. I blame the grog shortage.
I think I'm going to make a list of posts that lure Maddog out...and then do The Perfect Blog. *evil laughter*
Man, that sounds like some heavy-duty research is on deck, yer royal cakiness!This is the only head start I can provide:Rootin' Tootin' PutinPatriotsChowder Cannons (this might involve pickle pirates...not sure)DecoupagePortmanteau wordsWW IIThe ChopsockyThese are all wild guesses that have nothing to do with going through IANO's archives because I'm avoiding working at the moment. Also: I do not think that pie or butternut squash will lure him.
I was mostly disappointed that the prisoners were let free on a LIFE BOAT! WTF?! and they were given food and water? Sounds like some kind of pansy pirate to me. Didn't even make 'em walk the plank, for shame.
