We earned treasure for working well with our shipmates and finding the answers to pirate jokes. Here is an example (It’s Kathryn’s favourite!):

What is orange and sounds like a parrot?

  1. That is an awesome joke! We loved it. That arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh fabulous! I like Azmain’s pirate flag.

    Here is a joke that we also thought was awesome:

    Why can’t you take a picture of a pirate with a wooden leg?

    Because wooden leg’s can’t take pictures!

      I absolutely loved your pirate joke! I shared it with Kathryn and we both couldn’t stop laughing.
