“How do pirates pay for a round of rum down at the pub?"/"With bar-nickels.”

"Barnacles” sounds like “bar nickels,” and, of course, there are jokes. A pirate riddle was posted on Twitter by Laguna Playhouse on April 18, 2011:

Q: How do pirates pay for a round o’ rum down at the pub?
A: With Bar-Nickels!



Wikipedia: Barnacle
A barnacle is a type of arthropod constituting the infraclass Cirripedia in the subphylum Crustacea, and is hence related to crabs and lobsters. Barnacles are exclusively marine, and tend to live in shallow and tidal waters, typically in erosive settings. They are sessile (nonmobile) suspension feeders, and have four nektonic (active swimming) larval stages. Around 1,000 barnacle species are currently known.[1] The name “Cirripedia” is Greek, meaning “curl-footed”. The study of barnacles is called cirripedology.

On facebook you used to be able to choose “Pirate” as your language. I had it set to that for a while but I couldn’t understand the language well enough so I had to switch back to English.

Here is my joke: How do pirates pay for a round o’ rum down at the pub?

With Bar-nickels.
