Description

When the Pirate Council catches wind of Backbeard and his crew's stylish new look, they threaten to kick him out if he doesn't start wearing proper pirate attire. Unwilling to give up his new birthday suit, Backbeard chooses to leave his swashbuckling pirate life behind and search for new employment. But who will hire a dirty, smelly ex-pirate?
