Pirate Laws

Postby Jechbi » Sat Jun 13, 2009 6:38 pm

New TOS for Dhammic free-for-all? http://www.piratelaws.com

Just kidding, tho this one is pretty good:
Pirates do not say "please" or "thank you". The phrase "Arrr, I'll probably kill you tomorrow" is an acceptable alternative for "Thank you".

;)
Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.

Thanks Jechbi

Some of my faves...

No pirate shall attend a movie with less than an Arrrr rating.

If circumstances demand a career change, a move into real estate brokerage or tax collection shall be considered a lateral move and said individual may keep their pirate status.

No pirate shall ever sit on a toilet seat, for any reason.

Pirate Law: You can't spell pirate, without "irate". There's a reason for that, so don't even try.

No pirate will ever, ever raise his pinky when drinking any sort of beverage.

Under no circumstances does a pirate speak with a Ninja, unless he first decapitates that Ninja and uses his head like a sock puppet.

FABULOUS!!!!

isn't this the theravadan pastaferian group?

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Arrr, I'll probably eat his holy noodliness tomorrow.

just remember not to dress up as a pirate get drunk then head to a populated area with a real sword
