I just noticed that Anecorbie has now surpassed me in yars (This one DOES go back and forth a bit ) and has also sailed past me in posts. Congratulations Anecorbie for becoming the Message Board Marauders Queen of Verboseness.

*With great ceremony removes highest ranking Pirate Overlord crown and with a VERY proud look places it on the highly favored Anecorbie's head.* Well DONE and I couldn't be more thrilled.

My Dearest Chrissy, without your example ( as well as the example of others ), encouragement and kindness. I wouldn't be here . Thank all of you so very much, because it's was your choice to yar & reply to my posts, so this achievement isn't completely my doing.
So I ask you all, "Go out and spread those yars to the deserving posters of Pirate101's Message Boards!"

"Remind me again why we're crawlin' through this sewer."
"Cause she took it out of hiding. It's our big chance to take it."
"Take what?"
"The crown, ye blasted landlubber!"
"So we're down here getting all yucky just cause you want a crown?"
"Did ye try the Crown Shop, heh, heh?"
"Oh, hardy, har, har."
"Don't rest on your laurels, Cap'n."
"Don't make me come over there."
"I an' I still think this not be your best idea, Captain, my Captain."
"And what was my best idea, pray tell?"
"Staying home and having lunch sounds good to me."
"We're almost there. Oomph! Blast, Someone's locked the grate."
"Maybe they knew ye was coming for it, Cap'n."
"Could be, Chrissy's pretty paranoid."
"You sure that it isn't you, Cap'n? Ye be getting a bit confused recently."
"I know, I know, but just because you're paranoid doesn't mean someone isn't out to get you. Yeah, yeah."
"All right, crew, this is it. It'll be like taking cheese from Valkoor."
"Did you ever take cheese from Valkoor?"
"Well, no. But... OK, just listen up, here's the plan."
"We blow it up!"
"No, we don't blow it up. Who said that? Anyway, we rush the ceremony, grab the Crown, and run away."
"That's a plan?"
"That's THE plan."
"I thought blowing things up was THE plan."
"Cap'n, that plan is horrible (not unlike your singing)."
"Besides, if you'd stop overreacting, you might realize that Anecorbie has earned the Crown."
"What, you mean Esperanza? I always get them two confused."
"Maybe if worked a little harder for a few years, you might get a Crown."
"Personally I think he'd look good in a nice tiara."
"Now Cap'n, why don't we crawl back through the sewers and go home and have a hot cup of tea? Doesn't that sound nice?"
"Well, yes, but..."
"No buts, here we go, back the way we came."
"Do we have to fight them crawlies again?"
"Probably."
"Ki-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi!"
"Now what did you have to go and do that for?"
"I hadn't had any lines yet."
"There, there, Cap'n. We'll soon have you back in your little bungalow again."

LOL I will never cease to giggle at Underhillistic shenanigans of you and your wonderful crew. Good thing they decided to not try to steal the royal crown. Well, maybe not, Esperanza and I would have LOVED the extra "volunteers" to scrub the poop decks to get ready for the Valentine's Day festivities, as such a scheme would never gotten past our combined 'paranoid' security systems.

I honestly never thought anyone would surpass the all-mighty Cap'n Chrissy. Congrats, Anecorbie, you broke my expectations in half. (not that that's a bad thing, mind you)

Yum's on me, everyone!

*passes around a bottle o' Yum to everyone and two extra-large glasses to Chrissy and Anecorbie*

"Hmm... Say, how do you think a crown like that would look on me?"

"Jus' like a queen! ...Hang on... why do ye ask?"

"Are you thinkin' what I'm thinking Cap'n?"

"Only if you're thinking how well a crown would look with my new gala gown."

"Wait, Captain... you're not - !"

"O' course she is! Just say the word Cap'n an' we'll have that crown on yer head in no time! YAR!"

"Captain! I an' I must warn you that may not be the best idea..."

"Mormo thinks Captain has enough gold to forge many of her own crowns..."

"I must say, Dragonfly... I am surprised that you would consider stealing from your friends."

"It's just good ol' piratin'... there ain't nothing wrong with that. They're Pirates too after all, so it ain't like they wouldn't understand."

"What is everyone jawing off about? I can't concentrate on my fantasizing with all this commotion... Anyway, lets take a trip to that Valencian jewelry store. There's this beautiful golden tiara that I had my eye on for days now. Let's go and get it while we still can -- PREPARE TO SET SAIL!!"

... I'll accept a good ol' game of darts between you two laddies, as long as there are no holes in the wall (this isn't the Hole in the Wall Tavern, you know!), broken glasses (there are only so many), Yum keg leaks (now that's just a straight-up mess), or injuries in the tush.

Other injuries are fine, but one must never harm another pirate's underside. It's disrespectful, you know!

That's not why I backed away I've never thrown a dart before I know I'd lose if I went up against Chrissy or you anecorbie I just didn't want to be picked out from the crowd
