Funny Pirate Jokes

Aye, aye, me mateys, are you ready for some funny pirate jokes?

Truth be told, pirates weren’t very nice people. They committed criminal violence upon others with the goal of stealing cargo and worse. But, for some reason, jokes about them are pretty darn funny.

Perhaps, it’s because our vision of them is well defined from movies and books. We have visions of pirates wearing eye patches, hooks for missing hands, and wood pegs for missing legs. They wear scarves, dark colors, and their faces haven’t seen razors in some time.

But, who knew jokes about them could generate so many laughs? These humorous selections below won’t disappoint. Read on.
