ROFL.September the 19th draws near, me hearties...yarrr.
School is back, motherfuckers!
what means "keelhauled"?
Its so true
I doubt the barnacles are ecstatic about the arrangement, either. After all, what kind of barnacle lists seamen, friction and rope as all being essential parts of their favorite hobby?
Being keelhauled = being dragged under the keel of a ship as a form of discipline. The barnacles might not be the worst thing, so much as the not being able to breathe.
Nah, the barnacles are definitely the worst part. The whole point of keelhauling was to scrape the person against the barnicles so their skin would scrape off. And if done in shallow enough waters, sharks would be attracted to the blood and the poor guy would never make it to the other side. Ahhh, pirate justice....it's a beautiful thing!
yeah, i don't really get what's funny about this one. i think i was actually taught this in scouts.
and i had to lean how to tie knots!
To the moon!!
must be a kings student who said this...lmao
yeah, barnacles hurt.
Reading these comments makes me wistful for the Simpsons episodes with that great Dirty Harry-style detective on them. Good old McGarnagle, how I miss your entertaining brand of vigilante, cartoon justice...Barnacle McGarnagle would also be a great name for an old-timey, possibly half-drunk, bare-knuckle boxer. In a perfect world, he'd get the nickname based on his knuckles being hard sharp as barnacles - and thus very deadly. In an imperfect world, barnacle-esque would be the adjective most appropriate for describing McGarnagle's…. er, unique facial features. In either case, the nickname would keep getting better as the years wear on... as McGarnagle ages and becomes ever-more grizzly-lookin'. I don’t know why people are so skeptical. Barnacles are such great conversation topics.../Grizzled Barnacle McGarnagle, fuck yeah!
hahaha ok this really made me laugh.
