A wisecracking “pirate” guide leads a tour through pirate mannequins on land, ship and in caves while recounting bumbling rogues, marvelous escapes, and screwball failures. For example, there’s the one about Captain William Kidd, who had to be hanged twice, after the noose broke the first time. Some took this as a sign from God that he was innocent, but, our guide explains, officials convinced the watching crowd that “this is simply a sign from God that we bought very cheap rope.”
