We all have a bit of "pirate" in us, I think. A piece of pirate trivia: pirates never made anyone walk the plank. They just shoved them over the side of the ship. Artists from America's Golden Age of Illustration invented the "plank" because it presented more interesting imagery.

Fun post, and I great way to start the week. "Aarrrh!"

When my son was a toddler, we used to play this game where I would talk like a pirate and pretend I was kidnapping him and making him walk the plank. Aptly named "Scallywag" because that's the only pirate word I knew. Man, if the Pirates of the Caribbean movies had been out at that time, I could have been SO much better at that game.

Ah, my favourite series of movies, the Pirates of the Caribbean!

Joe, Pants down pool was a dare between the guys in the club. One of them is a bit of a pool shark and when his opponent lost he had to pull his pants down and run around the table. No kids were around (there were only about 6 this trip anyway) and our girls were certainly not there.

The fellas of the club are, well, lets just same some boys never grow up. It's all good fun, and nothing untoward, just boys, alcohol and lots of smelly farts! haha. :-)
