“Why don’t pirates drive on mountain roads?"/"‘Scurvy.”

A pirate riddle is:

Q: Why don’t pirates drive on mountain roads?
A: ‘Scurvy.


“Scurvy” (a disease suffered by many pirates) sounds like “it’s curvy.” “What did the pirate say about the winding mountain road? ‘Scurvy” was posted on Twitter on October 23, 2013.


Wikipedia: Scurvy
Scurvy is a disease resulting from a lack of vitamin C. Early symptoms include weakness, feeling tired, and sore arms and legs. Without treatment, decreased red blood cells, gum disease, changes to hair, and bleeding from the skin may occur. As scurvy worsens there can be poor wound healing, personality changes, and finally death from infection or bleeding.
