Can I just say right now that I’m glad they didn’t re-enact the beheading and/or the tying of Bugbeard’s head to Maynard’s ship? Because ew.


Mr Bugg is cosplaying as a Royal Navy captain, waving a flintlock pistol and grinning hugely. Mrs Bugg, meanwhile, is rocking a peg leg and a huge beard, waving a cutlass which was apparently not enough to stop another cutlass being poked into her chest. A bloodstain is spreading across her chest, and she looks sad that her life of profitable piracy is coming to an end.

The text reads: “Bugvember 22, 1718: Bugbeard the pirate is killed off the coast of North Buggalina.”
