Pirates had it rough, man.  I know there are those who just loved being out on the open sea with the smell of the salt and the camaraderie but it seems like that would get really old after a while.  You know it would smell absolutely terrible on that ship and that nobody’s brushing their teeth.  Or bathing.  Or washing their clothes.  I mean, these are GUYS we’re talking about.  Of course that stuff isn’t going to get done.

The worst part though is the total lack of women.  You know pirates were looking for women just as hard as they were looking for land which is how the phrase ‘land ho’ probably came about.   Or I could be completely full of it.  Either way, it made for a fun strip to draw.  🙂
