Shiver me timbers, ye scurvy dogs, I missed it, arr. That would be worse than the Black Spot, arr.

I be having eye surgery on Friday, arr, so I will have the appropriate patch on me eye then, by the powers, arr. Too bad about the timing, arr.

Regarrrds,
Shodan, arr

Why'd the pirate drive off the road?

Because it was scurvy!

Why did the corn salesman give up his job for a life of piracy?
He only made a good buccaneer.

A pirate walks into a bar and orders a bottle of rum. The bartender notices the pirate has a large ship's steering wheel extending out the fly of his trousers and points it out. The pirate replies, "Arrrrrr! I know, and it be drivin' me nuts, too."

Games are too expensive, if the creators were real artists, they'd be making games for free instead of trying to profit off of the fans who are making their work popular. They ought to be thanking us for the exposure we give them. Besides, their game sucks, you think I'm going to pay for that? When's the next update coming out?

“Whom do you want me to release to you? Barabbas, or Jesus who is called Christ?”

“What then shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?”

“Why, what evil has He done?”


...oh wait, I thought you said Talk like a Pilate Day.

Why don't pirates play cards?
