Cap’n Arnold Robert Ryan Rolf McNasty (or ARRR McNasty for short), was born under dubious circumstances in the Turks and Caicos Islands.  His father was rumored to be a pickpocket who fell in love with a woman he found picking his own pocket.  After stealing his heart – along with his watch – they were soon wed. For their honeymoon, they stowed away on a banana boat and six months later their premature and colicky child, ARRR McNasty, was born.  After the doctor snipped his mother’s umbilical cord, McNasty grabbed the scalpel and promptly relieved the doctor of his wallet.  The rest, as they say, is pirate history.  Cap’n McNasty has sailed around the world on his beloved pirate ship The Knotty List, along with his crew of mischievous malcontents. Their adventures are many – and their stories sometimes true! If ya like laughin’, learnin’, and lookin’ fer loot, grab yer sea chest and hop aboard, mate!
