Pirate

I've noticed lately that any time anyone posts a thread with the word "PIRATE", that the thread gets tons of views and posts. What is up with all this Pirate talk? Last weekend we went out to dinner with good (non-cruiser) friends. During our meal they asked us about pirates at least four times... and we are headed out to the Bahamas / Caribbean! Have I missed something? Are cruisers everywhere being plundered? ARRGG! If you are currently being held by pirates and cant type much, just hit * and I'll understand... Thanks, Chris

Where have you been?

You can't just wonder into the forum once a month and chuck out some missive about your dumb landlubber mates and then... what? wonder off again?

Its just not on!

You are either here, sailing, or in Somalia, none of this "I've had a sore typing finger" crap.

Now Mimsy, I want you to carefully study the photos below and tell me which is a pirate; which is an over made up tranny with greased hair; and who is wearing high heals!!!

Are you talking about 1 pirate or many pirate, it could make a difference.

Actually, it's a sore epoxying finger... Sure, it's easy to say, since you've recently won that great dingy battle.... You with your anti-pirate flour bombs...

Sailor goes into the Doctor and says: Doctor, Doctor whenever I tap my chest like this it hurts!


Doctor says: You've got a broken finger.

I hope you have fixed your hole. Or whatever

It's OBVIOUSLY a Plethora of Pirates... although "pillage" is damn good too!

How about a "pyrate of pirates" stirring a "cauldron of cruisers" in hope that alchemy makes less fools gold and more gems of conclusion?
