Caption Contest 108: Aaaarrrrr!

Because I wanted to give everyone considering a "Friday Nights 3" entry an extra week to work on their submissions (remember, due Thursday!), and in honor of this being "International Talk Like a Pirate Day", we're running another Caption Contest this week instead of a character design challenge.

Thus, your scurvy challenge this week, ye salty sea dog, is to come up with the best replacement dialog for this comics panel or be keel-hauled!:

I don't know what kind of ship he's on with that pink skull emblem but I feel sure we'll find out.

The best entry (as judged by yours truly) wins the author's choice of either any item they like or any portrait to be included in HeroMachine 3′s final release, or a custom black and white “Sketch of the Day” style illustration (you pick the subject, I draw it however I like).

All entries must be left as a comment (or comments) to this post. Keep ‘em clean (appropriate for a late-night broadcast TV show), but most importantly, keep ‘em funny!

This week we have a cap of no more than five (5) entries per person, so make 'em your best!
