“The pirates were fighting with each other because they didn’t have good anchor management”

"Anger management” is sometimes punned as “anchor management.” “There was a pirate who’d go into a rage when he couldn’t get his ship to stop.  He had to go to anchor management training” was posted on Twitter by Coyoty on August 5, 2011. “The pirates were fighting with each other because they didn’t have good anchor management” was posted on the website Pun of the Day on May 31, 2016.

A sailor riddle—without mentioning “pirates”—was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on June 21, 2019:

Q: Where does an angry sailor go?
A: Anchor management.


“Threw some butter at my coworkers today. They said I should try Anchor management” is a different “anchor management” joke.
