Private Pirate Monkey Brainstorming...

posted by ttg_Stemmle on - last edited - Viewed by 2.7K users

Hey guys 'n' gals,

In the spirit of "tapping the hive mind," I've got a few enigmatic questions for y'all:

-- What sort of book titles do you think could be found on the Voodoo Lady's bookshelf? Y'know, things like "The Joy of Hex," or "Screams of My Father."

-- For reasons that defy explanation, we're trying to enumerate dozens of unique kinds of winds, things like "The Wind the Blows Off Your Hat," or "The Wind that Sounds Remarkably Like an Unhappy Echidna." Can you think of any others?

-- Lastly, what's your pirate name?

Not promising anything,
Mike "Sleepy Boy" Stemmle

    Pirate Name

    According to http://www.piratename.net, my pirate name is Bloody Kuda Mathis, but I don't like that, so how about Captain Mikebeard the Ruthless.

    @MarkDarin said: HA!! I love it! Love the original book too. I'm odd that way.
    Same here! Also "My voice shall guide you" by Eriksson.

    My Pirate Name: Captain P. Silverwolf (it actually sounds piratey) Or, why not, Silverwolf Pet! Argh!

    I'll come back with more...

  • I thought of book titles and descriptions for each, hope you enjoy it. I'm non native english so maybe you make something better out of these descriptions.

    "What seadogs are made of - and what you can make out of them" Several recipes for the hungry pirate on high seas. (Guybrush may say: Hey they even got a Haggis recipe barbeqstyle... or barberstyle)
    "Malicious Mals de Mer - 5th anniversary Special Edition" - now with even more ill-ustrations.
    "Amorous Voodoo" - For all uptight pals who wanna get gals.
    "Hex Hex is no Tex-Mex" Not reviewed yet. To get more info ask your local "International House of Mojo"-shopkeeper.
    (I thought of a possible dialogue:
    Guybrush: What about the Tex-Mex book?
    Voodoo Lady: There've been many complaints lately that my mojo is stolen from the Mexican culture.
    Guybrush: Is there anything in common with the Mexican recipes and your voodoo recipes?
    Voodoo Lady: If you don't follow the recipes step by step, the outcome is unforeseen.
    Guybrush:... like global warming and rising sea levels?
    Voodoo Lady: Exactly.
    )
    "What the Hex?" Compendium of all mojos and voodoo spells that makes you live happily, while others die crappily.
    "What to do with my Voodoo?" A guidebook for fast and efficient curse lifting with a multi-language audio CP (compact parrot) on the last page.
    "Voodoo 2.0" The dos and don'ts about creating your own voodoo recipes. Samples of each ingredient included. Beware: Samples may be contaminated. Disinfect with boiling seawater before using.


    The wind after a good ol' chili con carne eating contest.
    Since there are so many sugestions I can't think of any good ones right now.


    Piratename... uhh... what about Rotten Leg Andy or Pancreas Andreas... I may prefer the last one, cos you could translate it into German with "Bauchspeicheldrüsen Andreas" or "Bauchspeicheldrüsen Andy"
