Muffler Man - Pirate

Field review by the editors.

Ocean City, New Jersey

Arm position: Standard, hook hand

Accessories: Pirate scabbard, eye patch, wooden leg, gold hoop earrings

Note: Watch for the nearby crashed Nam chopper, piloted by a skeleton, and the King Kong head at the entrance of Congo Falls.

Swashbuckler and Galleon

Just off the boardwalk at this popular Jersey beach town, behind Congo Falls and next to a Spanish galleon, stands a Muffler Man pirate. He is a hazard on a pirate-themed miniature golf course.

We were encouraged to believe a former Bunyan had been repurposed into a peg-legged scoundrel. But this same configuration -- rare though it be, me lads -- had been reported elsewhere.

The Piratization of a muffler man was an original factory specification, with accessories such as the eye patch and peg leg available as options.

Viewed in another context, this muffler man represents one's triumph over handicaps -- and the golf course is wheelchair accessible.

Eerily, a doppelganger pirate muffler man also lords over the other Ocean City, in Maryland.
