But you HAVE heard of me!

Captain Jack Sparrow may be the worst pirate that Commodore Norrington had ever heard of, but he made Newsday's list of the Top Ten Best. The full list goes:

10. Patchy and Painty
9. Jean LaFoote
8. Blackbeard and Jean Lafitte
7. The Crimson Pirate
6. The Dragon Lady
5. Jack Sparrow
4. The Black Pirate
3. Errol Flynn
2. Captain Hook
1. Long John Silver

They seem to have awarded extra points for innovation and trend-setting, so I'm not going to argue their picks. Jack's my favorite of the bunch, but he does owe a lot to at least the top three names on the list. If nothing else, the list is useful because it brought The Black Pirate and The Crimson Pirate to my attention.

If I were a more of a pirate fan, I could make an informed comment about that list. As it stands, I'm talking out of me arse.

Good list, though! :D

Burt Lancaster in The Crimson Pirate is the most energetic pirate ever. I love that movie. It's like Wild, Wild West 15 years early, but with pirates instead of cowboys...
