On our way back from Colorado (to Michigan), my companion and I began to get a little bored, to say the least.
It was at the peak of our malaise that my passenger relayed a game which he and another friend of mine had developed in a similar situation:
The Punny Pirate Game.
All you have to do is create a joke with some sort of pirate pun in it. In my opinion, the lamest, longest jokes are the best. Some examples:
There once was a pirate captain whose was very proud of his lovely wife and handsome son. So proud, in fact, that he always had them sail with him everywhere he went.
The pirate had named his son Ben, but it wasn’t long before the crew had christened him “Bean” because of the child’s insatiable appetite for the legumes. The name stuck. Even his own father called him Bean.
So one day, the three are walking down the beach when Bean begins to tire and lag behind.
The pirate captain turns to his wife and says simply, “Carry Bean.”
On an expedition into South America, a pirate crew captured a beautiful Incan woman. However, in the struggle, the Incan girl was injured, leaving her with only one eye. This earned her the name “Uni” from the crew.
Fortunate for the now imperfect girl, the superstitious crew wouldn’t touch her. Still, she was forced to remain on the ship to perform the more domestic duties that the average pirate avoided.
There was one pirate who was always very kind and welcoming to her and, over the years, she fell in love with him. As luck would have it, he had no use for silly superstitions and their nocturnal lovemaking could be heard across the ship.
After months at sea, the ship docked to pick up some more supplies and a few new crew members. As the fresh pirates stepped on board, they heard the unmistakable sound of lovemaking coming from below.
“What the bloody hell is that noise?” asked one.
“Oh that?” replied one of the veteran pirates. “That’s just Uni on Jack.”
So what do you think? Can we make a game of it?
