yo ho ho

Alejna cracks me up. She's got a pirate name quiz over her way that made me laugh and as such am bringing it to all of you here.

Mad Jenny Flint was too good not to share, and besides easily chipped and sparky sums it up pretty well these days. What is it about pirates anyways? For as sexy as they look I am pretty sure they smelled pretty damn rank. But still, there is something about pirates.



My pirate name is:


Mad Jenny Flint


Every pirate is a little bit crazy. You, though, are more than just a little bit. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!

And in other news, won't it be ironic if this is how he finally ends up in jail? I mean, I'd probably not have pushed it if I were him. But then again, I am not a madman. Just sparky and chipped.

You go, pirate girl. As for O.J., you knew the universe was going to catch up with him sometime.

I'm Red Jenny Rackham

Passion is a big part of your life, which makes sense for a pirate. 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!

Oh ok ... lol

Julie Pippert said...

Love it...that's awesome, Pirate Jenny!

And wow, just might love that news article too.

Let's see, back to pirate (or wait, did we leave that topic?), I am...

Captain Jenny Bonney

Even though there's no legal rank on a pirate ship, everyone recognizes you're the one in charge. You can be a little bit unpredictable, but a pirate's life is far from full of certainties, so that fits in pretty well. Arr!

Dude! They like know me inside and out!

(But why are we all called Jenny?)

(But you may all bow to your captain now, my Jennys of many colors. LOL)

Dirty Bess 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!


I like to think that the Rackham was inspired by my anatomy.

Jennifer said...

Argh! Morty Rachham here...

Morty??

My first thought on hearing the O.J. story was "You can run, but you can't hide, baby". Something's got to get him sooner or later. Let's hope it's sooner.

Janet said...

Dread Pirate Rackam.

I blame the name on the fact that I said parrots were "tasty."

kiki said...

Black Grace Vane, arr!

See mine on my sidebar at http://cecilieaux.blogspot.com/ (thanks!).

BTW, the name Julie gave you reminds me of bertolt Brecht's immortal Pirate Jenny:

[...]

You gentlemen can say, "Hey gal, finish them floors!
Get upstairs! What's wrong with you! Earn your keep here!
You toss me your tips
and look out to the ships
But I'm counting your heads
as I'm making the beds
Cuz there's nobody gonna sleep here, honey
Nobody! Nobody!
Then one night there's a scream in the night
And you say, "Who's that kicking up a row?"
And ya see me kinda starin' out the winda
And you say, "What's she got to stare at now?"
I'll tell ya.

There's a ship, the black freighter
turns around in the harbor
shootin' guns from her bow

[...]

By noontime the dock is a-swarmin' with men
comin' out from the ghostly freighter
They move in the shadows where no one can see
And they're chainin' up people and they're bringin' em to me
askin' me, "Kill them NOW, or LATER?"
Askin' ME! "Kill them now, or later?"

[...]

That reminds me of one of my favorite jokes-
A pirate walks into a bar with a wheel stuck in his pants. The bartender says "hey! you have a wheel stuck in your pants!" The pirate says "Arrgh. It's driving me nuts."

OJ will get his own. Oh yes he will.

Amy York said...

I don't know if he's a madman or an idiot... But who cares? Finally... justice. There must be Karma ~ there just must!

Oh and Arrrrrr :)

Wayfarer Scientista said...

Love the name though I have to admit recent cultural pirate mania kind of gives me the willies since a friend of mine almost lost his life and did lose his wife and his three kids when pirates boarded his ship sailing from France to the US (this was like 15 yrs ago).

QT said...

It is only a matter of time, when you live life on the shady side of the law.

BTW, Iron Bess here - nice to meet you, I mean ARRRR!

Ally said...

That pirate quiz was fun. I'm Captain Anne Cash. Yeah, that's Captain to all you deck-swabbin' marmites!

Re OJ, I will be very happy to see him behind bars someday. It is only a matter of time.

painted maypole said...

Make OJ walk the plank, Mad Jenny!

Lawyer Mama said...

Karma's a bitch, isn't it?

My name was Red Ethel Kidd. I'm still trying to figure out where Ethel came from! My description: "Passion is a big part of your life, which makes sense for a pirate. Even though you're not always the traditional swaggering gallant, your steadiness and planning make you a fine, reliable pirate. Arr!"

That was fun!

Beck said...

I'm the same as Meno. And oddly enough, I ALSO know someone who survived a pirate attack in South Asia. Hm.

Magpie said...

I'm Black Morgan Kidd...huh.

Amanda said...

Ummm, did anyone else "swab the deck" and then realize they had to start all over? Red Anne Flint, more like Dull Grey Amos.

Christine said...

i'm dirty charity flint.

i guess we're related!

Kyla said...

Black Bess Kidd

Like anyone confronted with the harshness of robbery on the high seas, you can be pessimistic at times. Even though you're not always the traditional swaggering gallant, your steadiness and planning make you a fine, reliable pirate. Arr!

Quite fun. And for the record, Johnny Depp really only does it for me when he's dressed like a pirate. And then? Wow. ;)

Mrs. Chicky said...

Arr, Red Charity Roberts. Shiver me timbers. Arr.

mitzh said...

Mine was-- Calico Charity Rackham

I was actually to see him go to jail, is that bad?

crazymumma said...

Flint lights fires.

just sayin'.

arghhhhhh.

crazymumma said...

Captain Anne Rackham by the way.

Does the 'Rack' have something to do with my boobs?

Lucia said...

No, no, no! This must be all wrong!

Ethel!?! What a dated name followed by a femmy chaser.

Captain Ethel Bonney

jen said...

Crazymum - of course it has to do with your boobs.

Lucia - what kind of pirate are you anyways? Madame grandma pirate???

How come I didn't get Rack in my name i wonder? pffft.

flutter said...

well we kind of knew his wife beating, egotistical ass would end up in jail for SOMETHING right?

Hel said...

Iron Jenny Bonney

A pirate's life isn't easy; it takes a tough person. That's okay with you, though, since you a tough person. You can be a little bit unpredictable, but a pirate's life is far from full of certainties, so that fits in pretty well. Arr!

Arr, I should be finishing my proposal arr, due in 6 hours arrr, but this is more fun arrrrrrrrrrrr.

Mad Hatter said...

Mad Mary Rackham. Kinda dull, really. But I am supposedly crazy just like you.

slouching mom said...
