“Pie rates of the Caribbean” (pun)

"Pie Rates of the Caribbean”—a pun on the Pirates of the Caribbean film series—has been printed on many images. “Pie rates of the Caribbean.  Rubbish.  No pies” was posted on Twitter on December 27, 2008. “Due to a mix-up at Blockbusters, I ended up renting a film about pastry pricing in the West Indies, called ‘Pie Rates of the Caribbean’” was posted on Twitter on February 6, 2010.

“Pie rates of Penn’s aunts” is a similar pirate pun.


Wikipedia: Pirates of the Caribbean (film series)
Pirates of the Caribbean is a series of American fantasy swashbuckler films produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and based on Walt Disney’s theme park ride of the same name.

The film series started in 2003 with Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, which received positive reviews from critics and grossed US$654 million worldwide. After the first film’s success, Walt Disney Pictures revealed that a trilogy was in the works.
