    Wasn't that also David Bowie's real name? Is Davey Jones' Locker a secret underwater concert with both Davey Joneses?!?!?

    I try to avoid movies that the bad guys can't die.If I'd have known about it before hand I would never have seen it to start with.

    But they did die, just took a while. Aliens couldn't die either, took an aweful lot.

    "The rum is gone?!"
    "yes yes, mr sparrow, the rum is gone"
    "why is the rum gone"
    "because it is a distugsting and foul drink that turns even the most respectable man into a total and complete slob. besides, the whole brittish fleet is out looking for me, and that signal is over a 1000 feet high, do you really think that there is a chance that they wont see it?"
    "but why is the rum gone?"

    i love that part, its one of the best in the whole movie i think.

    i too forgot my pirate lingo: yo ho ho, arggh *mumble mumble* davy jones' locker, savvy?

    Boy am I surprised. Every time I bring up this subject I get more surprised glances. Did you guys know that they are making not one, but two Pirates sequels? I saw an interview with Verbinski and Bloom that said that they are making two and they might be filmed back to back. This interview was on ET in Nov.

    That, my fellow pirates, is definitely 'savvy'!! :D

    I have to thank the Greater St. Louis Renaissance Faire for the pirate lingo. ;) I picked up a couple of lines from the pirates there, and then I commandeered a copy of their pirate talk manual. :D

    I know there is a site out there that has this stuff. After all, what isn't on the net? They probably took it from some site... Or maybe they didn't.. Scary.

    Scarier that I'm picking up more pirate lingo everyday also.

    Hi there Dajuan! *comes back from lurking during first college semester ;)* Far's I can tell, the full pirate song is:

    "Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me. We pillage, we plunder, we rifle, and loot,
    Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
    We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot,
    Drink up me 'earties, yo ho.
    Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
    We extort, we pilfer, we filch, and sack,
    Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
    Maraud and embezzle, and even high-jack,
    Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
    Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
    We kindle and char, inflame and ignite,
    Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
    We burn up the city, we're really a fright,
    Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
    We're rascals, scoundrels, villans, and knaves, Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
    We're devils and black sheep, we're really bad eggs, Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
    Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
    We're beggars and blighters, ne'er-do-well cads, Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
    Aye, but we're loved by our mommies and dads, Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho."

    Sorry if that was a mite longish, but it ALL had to be said, t'would destroy the beauty of a lovely song from a fantastic movie to abridge it, arrr ;)
