Pirates Ahoy!

Speakers:

  • Interviewer
  • Long John Silver
  • Blackbeard (Edward Teach)
  • Mary Read
  • Captain Henry Morgan
  • Black Bart (Captain Bartholomew ‘Black Bart’ Roberts)

Interviewer:                       A very good morning to you, Gentlemen (To Mary) Begging your pardon, ma’am!

Mary Read:                         That’s quite all right! I’m more than happy to be treated the same as these gents!

Long John Silver:              A clear case of ‘Who’s a pretty boy then?’

Blackbeard:                        (Growling) Well, she’s certainly better looking than you!

Cpt. Morgan:                     (‘Groggily’) Yes, even I can see that

Black Bart:                           Which sure is saying something given the state you’re in!

Cpt. Morgan:                     Yo ho ho! And a bottle of rum!

Interviewer:                       Oh dear! Who left out that bottle of rum?

Long John Silver:              And he’s already had a whole barrel that he brought along with him!

Interviewer:                       Something tells me we’re not going to get a lot of sense out of Captain Morgan this morning!

Mary Read:                         Oh! Don’t you worry! You wouldn’t believe what us pirates are capable of – even after a large number of rums!

Interviewer:                       Hmm. So I’ve heard! But perhaps we’d better start with this Welshman

Black Bart:                           Who? Me?

Interviewer:                       No. I’ll come to you in a minute. I was going to have a few words with Captain Morgan here – whilst he’s still capable of speech!

Blackbeard:                        (Hissing) You’d better get in there quick, then! And I’d make it a simple question, if I were you!

Interviewer:                       OK. So, why are pirates, pirates?

Cpt. Morgan:                     Because they Arrrrrrrrrrr!

Interviewer:                       (Sighing) Hmm. Very good! Let’s try again. Everyone knows that the Captain Morgan line of rum is named after you, but I wonder if they know about your lucky escape aboard that warship ‘Oxford’?

Cpt. Morgan:                     How could I forget? That stray spark so nearly took me out with my 350 crewmen!

Interviewer:                       Talk about going out with a bang! Very careless of someone to ‘strike a light’ near that gunpowder!

Blackbeard:                        What a waste! Much better drunk as part of a rum cocktail!

Interviewer:                       What, gunpowder?

Blackbeard:                        Ah yes! The perfect rum cocktail ingredient! You wouldn’t catch me being that careless with my gunpowder!

Cpt. Morgan:                     Huh! Coming from Mr. Health and Safety, over here! What about those burning fuses you used to light in your hair?

Mary Read:                         Ugh! All that filthy black smoke! What filthy habits some of those men pirates had!

Black Bart:                           Well, it certainly scared the living daylights out of his enemies! He sure was a scary sight at battle time!

Cpt. Morgan:                     Arrrrrr! Shiver me timbers!

Long John Silver:              Hey! Quit stealing my lines! I’ll have none left!

Blackbeard:                        (Sarcastically) Oh I’m sure that nice Robert Louis Stephenson will find you some more!

Black Bart:                           Yeah! Who invited this ‘fake’ along? A mere fictional pirate!

Long John Silver:              (Spluttering, furiously) Well, of all the cheek …

Cpt. Morgan:                     Huh! Cat got your tongue?

Blackbeard:                        No, but it might have got his parrot!

Mary Read:                         Boys! Boys! Why so cruel?

Blackbeard:                        (Sarcastically) Uh, because we’re pirates!

Mary Read:                         That’s no excuse for bad manners! Allow me to apologize, Long John Silver, on their behalf.

Long John Silver:              Nah! Don’t worry about them! They’re just jealous!

Black Bart:                           (Exploding) Jealous? Of you? Oh, pull the other one!

Cpt. Morgan:                     (Laughing) But he’s only got the one! Leg, that is!

Blackbeard:                        (Sneering) Along with that peg leg! I’m surprised Mr. Stevenson didn’t give you a hook instead of an arm, too!

Cpt. Morgan:                     Nah! Would have cost him too much!

Blackbeard:                        You mean (pausing for effect) an arm and a leg?
