    The History of the Sarcasm Pirate

    So I am relatively new to this site, and earlier today got to wondering where the sarcasm pirate originated from. I was hoping someone could trace the sarcasm pirate back to its beginning... from who first introduced it, what the thread topic was, why we do not have the sarcasm bow down guy or sarcasm wink face, ect.

    Whoever introudced the pirate sould be both praised for creating a way to let everyone know that their comments were sarcastic in nature, and be hated for opening up new avenues for people to be sarcastic a** h****. Just curious...

    Mike Taylor introduced that pirate a few years back.

    Haha, I assume you are referring to the Mike Taylor thread from earlier...and that whole epic fail of a thread is what got me thinking about the origins of the sarcasm pirate.

    Re: The History of the Sarcasm Pirate

    It's tough to determine the first person to use the pirate without scrolling through thousands of posts to find it. But a quick search brought out the development of the beloved sarcasm pirate.

    After noticing many instances where the : jimlad : was being used to convey sarcasm. Jbhtexas had the insight to request that it be moved to easily accommodate the use of it.

    And after a tense voting battle instigated by Clones_Jer, the sarcasm pirate clearly was a favorite of the members.

    And lastly, with great insight and a tough decision, the founder of the site Jeremy with the assistance of his "little helper" ChadM, the : jimlad : will forever be known as the Sarcasm Pirate.

    hypothesis: mafia over the summer.

    We all got tired of trying to decide if Rahtotheames's claims of being the doctor were real, so we decided to give him something to indicate his sarcasm. It didn't work because he never used it, but caught on nonetheless

    Re: The History of the Sarcasm Pirate

    I may be wrong but the first time I saw the sarcasm pirate was from one of the non CFr's in the travian gaming threads. MrFroho maybe?

    Re: The History of the Sarcasm Pirate

    Interesting...I still believe that whoever used it first should have some kind of licensing rights on the sarcasm pirate...maybe 1% of your credits each time you use it?

    Re: The History of the Sarcasm Pirate

    someone had it as their signature at some point and time....something like "this is a sarcasm pirate. Whenever you see me post this, I'm NOT serious" or something like that.

    Yes. It was SeattleClone.

    He fell in love with the sarcasm pirate. Almost to the level of CyDude16 and skipping class/getting sick.

    Could have been. I think it was somebody who had been on the site for some time - a "reputable poster" if you will I'm sure if we keep bumping this thread all day, said inventor will log on sometime and see the thread and make themselves known.
