Few know the origin of the Jolly Roger flag. The frighteningly true tale is that Captain Roger was betrayed by his crew and made to walk the plank, anchor tied to waist. His body was taken to the bottom where his spirit took control of a giant undead sea creature. His laughing spirit, with the help of this creature, took revenge on his crew and all pirate crews who betrayed their captain from that time forward. Pirate captains fly the Jolly Roger as a reminder to their crew to keep their place. "Arrr, 'tis true." (Disclaimer: May not be true.)
