Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of Rum

I don't know if this is a good thing or not, but I just want to point out that I'm secure enough in my own manhood to post it.

How Long Could You Last On A Gay Pirate Ship?

Yeah, Matey, how long can you last?


  1. Three months, but it's probably because I like Coldplay. I've seen them live, you know?

  2. I have no idea why, but I'd last 6 months.

  3. Because you're "Admiral of the UCF," Nathan, duh. The Gay Pirate Armada has reciprocity with us, or didn't you know?

  4. One month. Apparently Nathan told the gay pirates tales about me.

  5. Six months.

    But, I've always been adaptable.


  6. I've always been adaptable

    I think the term you're looking for here, Cindi, is: I've always been flexible...


  7. Three months. I think it was Coldplay that hurt me, unlike Eric, I don't care for them and have never seen them live.

  8. Can I be honest? I don't even know the hell Coldplay is. I'm pretty sure I've never listened to their music.

    Gone to Anchorage for a couple of hours, you kids behave.

  9. Behave? Us? You must be smoking something?

    I, too, would last 3 months. I don't like Coldplay, so it isn't that.

    I asked my new hubby the questions, it turns out that he could last 6 months on the ship.

    Not a surprise, really, as he lasted 2.5 years as a dj in a gay nightclub, thanks mostly to a protective cage.

    He chose the cook as the cabin-mate, so they could talk about food and recipes.

    When I told hubby his score, he said, "Really? That's nuts!" as he was throwing some pistachios into the stir-fry he was fixing.

    And yes, he chose Tiny (the African cook) as a cabin mate, mostly so they could talk about food and trade recipes.

  12. One whole year! In your face!

    (That's what she said.)

    Though, ya know, with me being a woman, I don't if they'd want me around that long. And I also said that I listen to Coldplay.

  13. Jim, you've probably heard Coldplay whether you knew it or not. Their previous album, X&Y was the best U2 record released in nearly twenty years. I haven't heard the latest one.

    The joke in the quiz is a reference to 40 Year Old Virgin, and a scene in which two (straight) dudes are trying to top each other in "Know how I know you're gay...?" "You listen to Coldplay" is a trump.

    The actual bandmembers themselves have a great cameo in Shaun Of The Dead, speaking of Coldplay/movies.

    Here's a link to the video for "The Scientist", from A Rush Of Blood To The Head; the video is, in my opinion, one of the most brutally sad music videos ever made (you have to watch it all the way through to see where the knife goes in). It's also a great little song, actually.

  14. Sheila must be pissed at the hubby for being so gay-adaptable...hence the poisoned pistachios.

    (Actually, here's hoping not! You must not have heard about the recall?)

  15. 6 months for me. Geez, my midtown Atlanta real estate crew would be disappointed. Midtown kinda being the gay center of Atlanta.

    I met the guys in Coldplay a while back and they're a kewl band.


  16. Though I'm a woman, it was a fun test. I could last 3 months, too!
