My old nan used to say "if it looks like a poyrit, then it's probably a poyrit". This is the Stavros S. Niarchos, an obvious pirate name and obviously up to no good.
I must admit, I have never heard of the dread pirate Stavros, but then I am no expert.

Why are pirates called pirates? Cos they aarrrr!
