no one is going to attack

But I find it funny when the Judge Smails of the sailing world try to stereotype those who sport a pirate flag as hillbillies

You don't have to go to Cat Island to see drunken morons, and their boat doesn't have to be a little ol' POS, I see more drunken morons on their new ( fill in the blank ) proudly flying the red white and blue slam the dock then anyone else................or try to leave with the dock lines tied or shore power still attached, but hey, they looked dapper and didn't spill their wine

Morons

I really have to agree with poopdeckpappy on this one. You make a very good point. I was just ranting.

These types don't even know they are A-holes, whereas "drunken hillbillies" know it and wear it like a badge of honor. Also, wouldn't drunken hillbillies run up a Confederate Flag before a Jolly Roger (or am I just stereotyping)?

Dictated, but not read.

We have a lighted palm tree (three trunks, about 100 little bulbs) that we put on our bow for fun. We put monkeys up in the fronds and cover the base with towels and such.

Monkeys I can see. Pirates I can't, past the age of eight or ten. Kinda like when Prince Harry made the tabloids by wearing an ersatz Nazi uniform to a costume party, some folks just think it is tacky to be celebrating radically asocial behavior.

18 USC Sec. 1651. Piracy under law of nations
Whoever, on the high seas, commits the crime of piracy as defined
by the law of nations, and is afterwards brought into or found in
the United States, shall be imprisoned for life.

Glorifying rape, robbery, plundering, and murder, just lacks any real humor for some of us. The judges don't even get a sentencing choice, just "Yes? No?" and it's over. Of course, keelhauling, tar and feathering, and riding a rail were also popular forms of the death penalty.

That's why the only 'pirate' flag I fly says 'Show me the Booty'

We ain't talking gold here. Jewels, yes, treasure, sure, but it's all voluntary.

Ah Chuckles,
Its usually "Surrender the Booty"

Of course "Real" pirates aren't going to be stupid enough to fly a pirate flag to give you warning that they are about to cause you trouble. So anyone that thinks someone flying a pirate flag actually is one is probably not to bright anyway.

Fly yer flag and enjoy.

I really don't get the association between a novalty flag and glorifying rape, robbery, plundering, and murder, but hell, everyone is entitled to their own level of humor I guess, but ya gotta keep it in prespective.

Priates that have been dead for over 200yrs didn't corner the market on rape, robbery, plundering, and murder, if they did, I can think of a few 1st world countries who can add copy right infrigment to their list of evil doings
