Who was the coolest pirate?

Postby Orangekrush90 on Wed Dec 07, 2005 11:02 pm

Personally, I'd say Black Beard, simply because he was the only one who ever actually lived. My vote for second best pirate would go to Frank Zappa... :worship: Although Cap'n Morgan does brew a tasty rum!

Help I'm a rock! Zappa was way too cool. So was Blackbeard, he had the Govenor of North Carolina on his payroll. He blockaded cities! Did he bury treasure at Oak Island?

I protest that my ancestor Jean Lafitte was not included in the poll. Typical east coast pirate snobbery.

Seeing as I am one of his ancestors, I would have ye spitted if not for our common need for more pirates.....arrgh. No pirate on pirate violence here.

But in all honesty, he is still considered a gentleman and a hero in Louisiana.

LJS, both for his incarnation with Tim Curry and for the chain of superb resteraunts bearing his monicer.
He's dastardly. He loves catastrophy. His schemes are masterly. Sixteen and half-past-three.

morgan did sack entire nations and wind up governor when his drinking became to severe for cap'nin... he gets my vote.... also i think more men who drink themselves to death should have brands of their favorite spirits named after them... makes the effort seem worthwhile.

Aye, I was hopin' I'd be on the list, too, LibraLabrat. I voted for Cap'n Morgan 'cause he's the only pirate I've ever drunk and that's good enough for me.

No problem. He was famous, but a long time ago. Have you worked out what type of pirate you are yet?

Pugwash

Lets not forget Captain Pugwash now. He had a lovely ship called 'The Black Pig'.
