Davy Jones!


The legend says:

"Aye, da'y Jones was born in Scotland; nothin' is known about his youth. He fell in lo'e with Calypso, the "heathen god[ess]" o' the sea who ga'e him the charge o' ferryin' souls which died at sea t' the "other side". Calypso ga'e Da'y Jones the Flyin' Dutchman t' accomplish this task. Why Calypso ga'e him this charge is unknown. She swore that after ten years she would meet him and they would spend one day together before he returned t' his duties. He kept t' his charge for ten years, knowin' he would see his lo'e again. Calypso howe'er, after those ten years, failed t' show up because o' her capricious nature (which had drawn Jones t' her in the first place). Enraged and heart-broken, Jones turned the Pirate Brethren against her, sayin' that if she was remo'ed from the world, they would be able t' claim the seas for themsel'es. They assembled in the First Brethren Court and Jones taught them how t' imprison her unt' her human bonds (Tia Dalma); the Court agreed with him t' imprison her fore'er Aye."

So mateis be weary of the dangers of the sea cuz you don't to end in Davy's Jone Locker!

Remember Dead men tells no tails!

Shiver me timbers!

Ahoy - I love pirates and as a result love your blog. Here's a quick joke for you:

A pirate walks into the bar and the bartender says, "Did you know you have a steering wheel sticking out of your fly?"
The pirate responds, " yarr - it's drivin' me nuts!"

I love Billy Nighy! He did an awesome job in Pirates. He is a stitch in Still Crazy if you haven't seen it. No matter what he will make you laugh!
