  • [Question] The meaning of "P.B.S. of A." (POTC auction scene)

    I recently came across an old thread about the meaning of the fine print at the bottom of the "Auction Today" poster in Pirates of the Caribbean. Here is a post from the thread that shows the writing clearly:
    http://micechat.com/forums/disneylan...ml#post3242031

    It says "All proceeds to the P.B.S. of A." I had noticed this many years ago and have always assumed that it was jokingly in reference to a fictional organization such as "Pirate Bride Society of America" or "Pirate Bride Service of America" but I don't know this for a fact. I'm kind of surprised that nobody else thought that the "B" stood for "Bride," but anyway, has anybody discovered the intended meaning of this initialism by now?

    Acronym's making me think of that comment from X. Atencio about the 90s Political Correctness changes making the Pirates into "the Boy Scouts of the Caribbean" (or A​merica in this case).

        Kind of funny how it works that way isn't it? We make an acronym of something that is relevant at the time but as time passes in the future people looking back may not have a single clue what we were talking about.

                LOL! Thanks? I just like this image of Peter. No one ever thinks about how much of a trickster he is and the fine line he actually walks between harmless and sinister.
