Just been musing in the office with a couple of others and the question came up, if a boat takes out some somali pirates do you get a double jolly roger and what would the symbol be :?:

Would it be a black skull and crossed bones on a white flag?

I like your thinking :)

Could that be called negative thinking :roll:

What's so negative about that? Putting pirates on the sea floor is positive, and if the RAF can put the bomb symbol on the side of the aircraft below the cockpit after a bombing raid, then it is only fair that the RN can fly the Jolly Roger. Apart from which is it not tradition?

I don't think crabman has quite got the gist of this, or any experience of wordplay
