Ocean City, Maryland: Muffler Man - Pirate

Muffler Man 20-foot-tall buccaneer guards the entrance to Jolly Roger Amusement Park, although his dainty hat is a piracy faux pas. He's been here since 1964.

It looks like he may have changed shirts again. He's by far the nicest Muffler Man I've come across. His paint job is well done, and he actually has irises... which is a nice change of pace from the demon-eyed ones further south.

He is still standing, disguised behind that silly pirate costume, but you can tell his empty hands (the sword is gone) long for a muffler. He still stands watch over the Jolly Roger "Amusement" Park.

The Jolly Roger Muffler Man has changed duds yet again, now sporting a lovely black vest and brown trousers. And his sword is gone - now he holds nothing. Still in front of the Jolly Roger Amusement Park.

The Jolly Roger Muffler man at the mini golf in Ocean City has changed clothes. Gee, that opens a lot of questions to me....where is his dressing room, for one. I don't know, I liked his old duds better.
