Pirates in a tinny? Pirates with rocket-propelled grenades and bazookas? Where's the really big hats and the eye patches? And the cannons full of forks? And the swords? I dont see any swashbuckling going on.
Pirates these days. They have no idea. These guys are just giving pirates a bad name. Havent they heard about the Pirate Code?
They need a few lessons from this chap...
Now HE'S a pirate!
