W in the F is with the Jolly Roger flag, matey?

The Jolly Roger. Black flag with skull and crossbones. You know what else is crossed? My arms…both in confusion and frustration trying to make some sense of this design concept. I’ve never seen a skeleton contribute to sailing a ship. He’s not going to sit in on a game of poker with the crew. He won’t improve morale with his incomprehensible moaning that he tries to pass off as banter. And the color scheme? Was black fabric available at discount prices in the age of exploration?
