Passion is a big part of your life, which makes sense for a pirate. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!

Your pirate name is:


Dirty Mary Flint



You're the pirate everyone else wants to throw in the ocean -- not to get rid of you, you understand; just to get rid of the smell. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!


--- LOL.

Every pirate is a little bit crazy. You, though, are more than just a little bit. Even though you're not always the traditional swaggering gallant, your steadiness and planning make you a fine, reliable pirate. Arr!

Fess up fubbleskag.

Captain James Flint



Even though there's no legal rank on a pirate ship, everyone recognizes you're the one in charge. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!

What's funny to me is when it asked for my real name, I put in Prometheus, and it gave my pirate name James, which is my real name. Like I said, funny to me

So, dear - I notice that Dirty Mary shares our name.

How could you take up with the likes of her, you no good, rotten, two-timing jerk? After I gave you the best 6 months of my life, and about 10 of the okay ones...

Avast me maties, I be Iron Bess Read and 'tis said about me that a pirate's life isn't easy; it takes a tough person. That's okay with me, though, since I am that person. Even through many pirates have a reputation for not being the brightest souls on earth, I defy the stereotypes. I've got taste and education. Arr!

Blimey! Who knew!

8-) Well, you don't have to TAKE it, just answer the questions on it, post your pirate name, then refuse to have anything whatsoever to do with it. Wash your hands of it. Refuse to take it anywhere, even for a cup of coffee.

Besides, this quiz isn't silly. It's obviously based on the latest scientific technology. I found it to be very revealing.

So true. It isn't even a quiz so much as a Test of Significance and Worthiness, sponsored in part by Stanford University in its ongoing efforts to solve the problem of Nuclear Fission and the Modern Day Pirate.

But you have no problem posting them, eh? Lol. It's ok. I took the quiz for you.

Dread Pirate Flint

Like the famous Dread Pirate Roberts, you have a keen head for how to make a profit. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!

Anybody have a link to that song about Pirates on the Saskatchewan River? It's hilarious, but I lost it when my browser died.

Dirty William Rackham


You're the pirate everyone else wants to throw in the ocean -- not to get rid of you, you understand; just to get rid of the smell. You have the good fortune of having a good name, since Rackham (pronounced RACKem, not rack-ham) is one of the coolest sounding surnames for a pirate. Arr!

What's wrong with my smell??

Reverend,
I owe you one

Pirates of the Saskatchewan

Arrogant Worms

Chords: C, F, G, Am, D


1. I used to be a farmer and I made a living fine.

I had a little stretch of land along the CP line.

But times were hard and though I tried the money wasn't there

And bankers came and took my land and told me fair is fair.

I looked for every kind of job, the answer always "no".

"Hire you now?" they'd always laugh "We just let twenty go!"

The government, they promised me a measly little sum

But I've got too much pride to end up just another bum!


Then I thought, who gives a damn if all the jobs are gone?

I'm gonna' be a pirate on the River Saskatchewan!


Chorus:

'Cause it's a "Heave HO Hi HO" coming down the plains.

Stealin' wheat and barley and all the other grains.

It's a "Ho HEY Hi HEY" farmers bar your doors

When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores!

(....arrggg......matey.......)


2. Well you'd think the local farmers would know that I'm at large

But just the other day I found an unprotected barge.

I snuck up right behind them and they were none the wiser.

I rammed their ship and sank it and I stole their fertilizer.

A bridge outside of Moose Jaw spans a mighty river.

Farmers cross in so much fear their stomachs are aquiver

'Cause they know that "TRACTOR JACK" is hiding in the bay.

I'll jump the bridge abd knock 'em cold and steal off with their hay!


3. Well, Mountie Bob he chased me. He was always at my throat.

He'd follow on the shoreline 'cause he didn't own a boat.

But cutbacks were a-comin', so the Mountie lost his job.

So now he's sailin' with me and we call him Salty Bob.

A swingin' sort'a skull and bones and pleasant company.

I never pay my income tax and screw the GST (Screw it!)

Prince Albert down to Saskatoon, the Terror of the Sea!

If you want to reach the Co-op boy you gotta' get by me!


4. Well pirate life's appealing, but you don't just find it here.

I hear that in Alberta there's a band of buccaneers.

They roam the Athabasca from Smith to Fort MacKay,

And you're gonna' lose your Stetsons if you have to pass their way.

Winter is a-comin' and a chill is in the breeze.

My pirate days are over once the river starts to freeze.

I'll be back in springtime, but for now I have to go.

I hear there's lots of plundering down in New Mexico!!
