  • RIP Jack King: The Kid Pirate

    He probably never had a plastic sword with realistic sound or eye patch with the skull & crossbones or a silk-screened t-shirt but I miss him anyway!

    Remains of child pirate discovered

    Yo ho ho: A pirate's life, and death, was the fate of history's yougest pirate, whose remains were reported Wednesday by marine archaeologists. Led by underwater explorer Barry Clifford, the team reports that a shoe, silk stocking and leg bone found pinned under a cannon belonged to 9-year-old Jack King. He ran away from his mother to join the pirate ship Whydah in 1716. Tentative forensic reports confirm the leg bone, discovered after the shoe, probaly came from an 8- to 11-year-old boy. Clifford's colleagues uncovered Jack's tale in the 1716 deposition of a captain whose ship was taken by the pirates. The Whydah sank on April 26, 1717, off Cape Cod, taking most of its crew and pirate captain Sam Bellamy with it.

      While that is a very sad story, it is also a pretty cool story.
      I love history things like this.

      Thanks for sharing this story and
      may God bless his soul.

        It is a great little story. Who wants to bet that Jerry Bruckheimer Films' legal department is looking into the film rights at this very moment?!

          OMG... this totally has the makings of several made-for-tv movies.

          Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...
