“Hmmmm… Think that’s real gold, Cap’n Jack”
Upon stealing the flame of the statue of Liberty Captain Jack Sparrow suffers the ‘Curse of America.’
– People not on the crew continuously try to board the Black Pearl
– The French say they’re your friend, but then openly despise you.
– People think you lie and steal like a pirate (Well for Captain Jack, that wasn’t so bad)
– Others feel ‘entitled’ to your gold.
– Everyone on the crew thinks the rules are only guidelines.
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.
— The Code is more what you’d call “guidelines” than actual rules.
Let ’em pass, they ain’t Mexican.
