  • Essay: Can An Audio-Animatronic Pirate use a Gold Watch?

    This essay was written after my last trip to Pirates (in March). Knowing the changes that were coming...

    I want to preface this essay by saying I am a great fan of the movie Pirates of the Carribean, and I have nothing but excitement in regards to the new changes to the ride. I just wanted to give a little tribute to a hard working Pirate.

    Can an Audio-Animatronic Pirate use a gold watch?
    Or
    What do you give a retiring robotic pirate?
    by
    Prof. Griffin










    After about a month or so of hard fighting, I started to notice the little boats below.






    I waved my cutlass and grimaced with fury, from time to time glancing down and affording a sly wink to the little boats below.




    As long as I was the Captain of the Wicked Wench me heart and soul was dedicated to firing upon that town, and making the passengers on the little boats watch, smile and gasp in wide-eyed wonder.




    I was carried by the Imagineers to a large open area and there, laid carefully down. For the first time in almost 40 years, my view had changed. As terrifying as it was, I was strangely excited, and waited for what was to be coming next.

            Thanks for the kind words all.

            My intent was not negative. As you can tell, I love the Pirates ride...(the smell, the water, those wonderful fireflies) and look forward to it's new additions.

            I just felt a little sorry for that Captain. (I bought the Captain action figure from Pieces of Eight last visit...just to remember the ol' boy.

            If you all enjoyed that, I'd be only too happy to post some more essays...specifically on The Haunted Mansion, my absolute favorite place in the park(s) and my second home.

                Thats a great post, they should put the captian somewhere special in the park, and give him some legs too!
                There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective.

                  that was great! it's so sad, but very well done (it might also interest you to know that I was listening to "One LAst Shot" on the PotC soundtrack and it...was just perfect). I feel strangly sorry for that pirate...may the wind be forever at his sails!

                        By all means, lets see the HM writings. This is certainly not a negative report. It was very well done and I think the tears were because you wrote so well, you made us feel for the Captain. And that's not an easy thing to do. So post away.
