116 Pirate Puns That Arrrgh Pretty Hilarious

The conquerors of the seven seas and all the ships that have ever crossed them, the parrot whisperers, rum connoisseurs, mythical men (and a few ferocious ladies), shrouded forever in a veil of mystique. Oh aye, we indeed are talking about pirates! And what’s a better way to show our appreciation of these sea masters if not by dedicating a post full of puns to them! Aye aye cap’n, it’s pirate puns that ye be about t’ witness, and they are as good as a buried chest of treasure. 

To delve into the history of pirates would require a whole series of intrinsic articles, but just to safeguard you and us from inevitable confusion, let’s just agree that we are talking about ocean raiders. Definitely not about downloading songs (like Wheezer’s Teenage Dirtbag) through LimeWire and getting George W. Bush’s speech instead. It’s the braveheart corsairs that we are talking about in these cool puns, so you should expect keywords such as looting, parrots, pirate ships, and treasures in this article, and not for stuff like ‘download.’ Okay, since we’re clear on that, it’s probably time to skip straight to the silly puns, here yonder. And shiver me timbers if we don’t think that they are truly the prized booty of the internet! 

Now, matey, it’s almost time for you to set the sail for looking at the pirate puns themselves. No, they are not some seven seas away, but rather only a short plank walk down below. Once you get there, vote for the corny puns that made you go yo-ho-ho and give ’em your vote. After that, share this loot chest with anyone who might find it of interest!
