A pirate runs into a doctor's office in some distress. He has a steering wheel sticking out of his pants. He rushes up to the receptionists desk. The receptionist says, "Sir...there's a steering wheel sticking out of your pants." And the pirate says, "Arr! It's drivin' me nuts!"

Ye be a thread killer and ye'll walk the plank fer it, ya hear?

By yer words, ya landlubber? I say ye'll feel the cold steel of me cutlass and we'll see the color of yer innards afore I walk the plank.

Keelhaulin's too good fer yer, and all mutineers.

Now wars that scurvy dog Huggis? He's got treasure aplenty, and we've guns aplenty to take it. What say you, buccaneers?

Let's have at 'im.
