If you want to make a statement, fly the american flag upside Down to see how many comments you generate.
how about flying the pirate flag upside down? or, instead of flying a pirate flag, how about a mr yuck flag? remember mr yuck? when i was a kid, they thught the death's head wasn't a good enough sign for poison so they started using the mr yuck. i heven't noticed if they still use mr yuck or not. but how about a mr yuck flag?.

mr yuck is green. mr yuck is mean.

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

Flying the pirate flag upside down would be an interestng statement to symbolize anarchy within anarchy for sure.

This thread has gone to Mars and back and has been very interestingly and humorously perverted in many ways to such a simple question by a admitted new sailor, but, with all due respect to everyones postings, I think I will continue flying my spongebob squarepants pirate flag just to piss off you and Paulo.:-D

That's great! If I saw that flying, I'd *know* the owner had a sense of humor.

You don't piss me at all. Things are what they are and people fly the symbols that are identified with.

I, and many like me associate a pirate flag on a boat with....well, I guess you know by now. I don't care if others fly them, provided that nobody wants to fly one in my boat. For me they just don't stand for nothing I want to be associated with

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

Fair enough, well said Paulo.

Sorry to let you down a bit there manatee, but it was meant as a joke to prod Captain Jack and the way too serious Paulo. I think flying a pirate flag is lame to answer the OP`s initial question, but if there were kids onboard having fun and it was appropriate to fly one, I`d try to have the biggest and most artistically creative one to fly for them in the name of fun, but then again, it all Depends on the spirit of the person behind the boat it is on.

If you want to make a statement for flying a flag, fly the american flag upside Down to generate comments at happy hour.

If I were to fly a pirate flag though, spongebob`s would be the one for the humor of it.
