After realizing Aztec cursed immortal skeleton pirates were not nearly frightening enough, we raise the bar by bringing in the dark shadow side of old St. Nick. In minute 106 of The Curse of the Black Pearl, we redeem ourselves with a discussion of Captain Barbossa’s impatience with escape artist Captain Jack Sparrow, examine Jack’s need to convince everyone that he is a man of his word, breakdown Mullroy and Murtogg’s conversation on the longboat while waiting for the cursed crew, and deep dive into the legend, meaning and folktales of Old Hob – a dark, sinister form of St. Nicholas and the unlikely relationship to the hobby horse. Join us for this episode of Pirates of the Caribbean Minute.
