I'm sorry, but America's romanticised fascination with all-things-pirate walked the plank last week with the CBS premiere of PIRATE MASTER, which coincidently is also the summer's hotest gay porno.
A true pirate "reality" show would have contestants raping, looting, murdering, pilaging, and a wee bit of plundering, pending time allowance with commercials.
I still can't believe that we have to sit through this crap on television and in theatres, and there has yet to be a sequel made to The Goonies? WTF?!!
Which reminds me of this great pirate joke roughly translated on Telemundo last week...
Pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel in his pants.
Bartender says, "Doesn't that wheel bother you?"
Pirate looks up and says, "Arrrrgggh, it's driving me nuts!"
