The Sitting Pirate
|Behind the scenes|
Not much is known of Slurry Gibson's life, but it is known that he would still live in Shipwreck Cove by the mid-1740s. One night, he would join a group of pirates as the Auctioneer led an auction on two wenches, Scarlett and Giselle. Throughout the bid, many of the pirates bidded on Scarlett, referring to her as the "redhead". Gibson would make a bid for fifty pieces of silver for Scarlett. After Scarlett and Giselle began fighting each other, bids ran up ten-fold. Throughout the bidding, Gibson would give bids from 350 to 600. After a pirate named Nigel brought his goat into the bid, Slurry Gibson reminded him that he loved that goat. The bidding ultimately ended with the Marquis D'avis winning the bid with seven hundred and two goats.
There was soon an argument, which ended with a pirate named Mungard firing his pistol accidentally hitting the Pirate Code. The Auctioneer, still holding the Code, fell backwards to the ground. Everyone, including Slurry Gibson, stared in shock of what just happened. The pirates whisper amongst themselves about Mungard having shot the Code. Slurry Gibson mumbled that Captain Teague would have his head. It was then that Mungard ordered the Code to be locked up and warned the crowd of pirates that if any of them spoke a word of what occurred, that he would have their tongues.
Slurry Gibson's further fate is unknown.
