Cargo Ship Mate Charged with Stabbing Captain Over a Bottle of Rum – Virgin Islands Platinum News.
Well, I guess the bloke is doing his part to keep the spirit alive. But if I were a betting man, I’d stake a fair amount that the rum in question was Bacardi, or some other wretch not worth getting stabby over.
It would have been cooler if he stabbed him with a hook.
I think you’re right Bilge. Had it been a really good bottle of rum the mate would have done the job right with a cutlass or blunderbuss but not a pair of scissors. Being stabbed with scissors by a “pirate” is more of a warning. =P
