Yo-Ho-Ho! It’s More Pirate Fun!
I haven’t found a copy yet, but I’m very excited to get a copy of the new indy comic Scurvy Dogs in which olde timey pirates are transported to the present and are forced to seek new employment. Check out this sample dialogue:
Interviewer (reviewing resume): So your home address is fifteen paces from Hangman’s tree due south and your marital status is to the sea. How nice for you.
(beat panel of pirate squinting at him)
Pirate: I’m three sheets to the wind.
Interviewer: I’m not sure what that means, but I think you’re going to fit right in, McDougal. Okay, I need you to sign right here.
(the pirate scribbles on the paper)
Interviewer: That’s an “x”.
Pirate: That’s me mark. I never learned to read.
Interviewer: Then how did you fill out this application?
Pirate (hanging head): Three sheets to the wind.
