    What shall we do with the grumpy pirate? :rolleyes::confused:

    Oh for f**k's sake!

    Such a tightly regulated, no-fun-to-be-had-at-all-costs kind of a world we live in…

    That in no way rings true, does it? Even if the pirate theme thing is true, "drunken pirate" scans in exactly the same way as "grumpy pirate" so there's no need to change the word at all!

    Not to mention it just doesn't make sense! Grumpy pirate? Think of the verses...

    Shave his belly with a rusty razor...

    Put him in bed with the cappin's daughter...

    and so many more. Why would you shave a grumpy pirate's belly? Wouldn't he just yell at you?

    I guess the captain's daughter verse might work, if you wanted to make the pirate happier...

    Stupidest idea ever...

    ^ They've removed those parts too. And anyway, the captain's daughter is a pirate euphemism for being whipped with a cat o' nine tails :)
