The Church Militant – with pirates!

I had to laugh at this rendition of the “pirate hymn”.  I’d never heard of it before.  Clearly, I’ve lived a more sheltered life than I thought I had!

I’m very glad there’s so much good, clean, funny humor still out there, if you look for it.  One gets very tired of profanity in the guise of a joke.



  1. I've watched several videos from Dry Bar. Some comedians are very funny – very funny. I appreciate the civil tongue.

  2. Now that one was really funny. Something of a throwback to the days when folks could get laughs without profanity.

  3. Okay, well here's one for you.

    Do you remember the theme song from "Gilligan's Island"?

    "Come sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip…"

    Now, think of the hymn "Amazing Grace".

    "Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me…"

    The words and the tune of these two songs are interchangeable!

    It's true. Try it. Sing the words to "Amazing Grace" to the tune of "Gilligan's Island" and vice versa. They fit.

    (This is actually not that unusual. There are many songs like that, but since I learned that, I can never hear either of those two songs without smiling.)
