    Being a professional pirate and scourge of the River Thames, I felt I should add to the pirate dictionary there (and these are real terms by the way, hence why they are mostly not very nice, as pirates generally were bad eggs)

    Callet - a whore
    Noddy - a fool
    Corsair - a privateer
    Gleet - an STI, generally thought to be gohnorrhea
    Boatswain (Bo'sun) - the person in charge of the cables, rigging and anchor
    Keelhaul - A form of punishment, where sailors were dragged under the keel of the ship by yardarms
    Boxing ones Jesuit - Having a bit of 'quiet time', if you get my drift
    Chain shot - a form of cannon shot with two cannon balls linked by a chain, ideal for busting up sails
    Grape shot - Makes the cannon like a giat shotgun, fires all sorts of debris (nuts, bolts, shrapnel) and intended to be fired at crews on the deck of enemy ships
    forecastle The forward part of a ship below the deck, where the crew quarters were usually located. Also called: fo’c’s’le.

    Anyone who has read the excellent Requiem Shark by Nicholas Griffin or played the brilliant Sid Meier's Pirates will have come across these

    Pirate walks uncomfortably into a bar with a ships steering wheel sticking out of the front of his pants.

    Bartender says, "Oh, man! That's GOT to be uncomfortable!"

    Pirate says, "Aaaarrrrr... aye, matey!"

    Bartender asks, "So... why do you have a steering wheel sticking out of your pants?"

    Pirate says, "Aaarrrrrrrr... it be drivin' me nuts!"
