Revised Company Policies

[reddit-me]“Yarrr! Tell Steve, it be me 15 minute break. Ye’ll be findin’ me in Davey Jones’ Break Room feastin’ on a Hot Pocket and a tankard o’ Mr. Pib.”

[There are a few new additions and updates to The Store. Check it out!]

So, The Pirate Bay was acquired by a “legitimate” company that plans to transform it into a “legitimate company.” I’m sure they’re banking on name recognition from all the media exposure and lawsuits to bring the honest non-eyepatch customers around. Remember how well that worked for Napster? [hint: not well]

YOUR COMMENT CHALLENGE: Assuming The Pirate Bay was a retail store (see the above comic for precident), give me some scenarios that might play in said store. How about bathroom signs that say “Employees must wash hooks before returning to work.” Or maybe OSHA guidelines demand all peglegs be made of spruce or maple.

  2. All I can say is the sexual harassment program would be VERY interesting ("Wait, so we're NOT supposed to chase bosom-y women around the tavern??").

  3. I don't understand how you can acquire the pirate bay, but if you can, we're going to need a new Tortuga, if you'll pardon the reference. It'd be really easy to fill that gap, it seems to me. I'm holding out for a hero.

  4. From the Employee Handbook: Employees must avoid ARRRRRRRRRRGuing with customers.

    Also: Keelhauls strictly forbidden unless ordered by Manager.

    Customers caught scamming other customers will be fined $1.5 million and forced to work for the rest of their natural life, and into the first century of their afterlife.

  6. At Pirate Bay sexual haRRRRRassment is encouraged and wenching is required. If a fine filly give ye the eye(cause she only has one) feel free to have her shiver your timber in the copy room.

  8. This comic actually showed up below the post in the Google RSS Reader (but just above the Topatoco ad and Related Posts). First time that's happened – don't know if you've done anything different.

  9. The Pirate Bay: Keeping Your Rum DRM-Free Since 2009.

    Alcohol consumption on the job is not only encouraged, but required. Employees whose BAC fall under the required limit (.15) will be sent home and asked to "drink up" before returning to work.

  13. So, are we meeting Boxcar Pete's more successful brother, here?

    Reply
    • No but I can see the source of confusion. Where as Boxcar Pete is a hobo that just so happens to TALK like a pirate, this fellow is a pirate through and through.

  14. Free lemons with every purchase to help fight scurvy!

  15. I think everyone who's ever worked in retail will agree with me when I say the Pirate's understanding of returns policies is vastly superior to that normally employed by retail outlets.

    It should be introduced worldwide with immediate effect!

  16. Any customer caught in the act of attempting to use monetary gains to obtain any of the following will be immediately bludgeoned and keelhauled, and, if they haven't learned their lesson yet, shot to death with the company blunderbuss:

    Any album by Lil Wayne, Lil' Romeo, Lil' Flip, or any other rapper whose name starts with Lil, Lil' or Little.
    The Super Mario Bros. Movie
    Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest
    *insert long list of horridly bad music, movies, video games, etc. here*
