guybrush threepwood

Right now I am: Excited and sweaty.

 

“Guybrush Threepwood, mighty pirate.” Guybrush is the most amazing and probably one of the most influential people in my life right now. If you know who he is you are either agreeing or shaking your head like I’m a crazy person. Just because he’s a fictional character in a video game series about pirates and monkeys does not mean he’s not awesome. In fact, it means he’s so awesome I worry about awesome overload.

 And by the way, all you non-believers out there: Just because he is fictional does not mean he doesn’t exist! I even think Guybrush Threepwood is more real than some of the snobs who say that. I mean, they wouldn’t know a good pirate if he shoved six pieces of eight in their eyeballs. (Yes, INTO their eyeballs.)

 Oh, I almost forgot to tell you not-knowers (poor souls) who he is. He is a mighty pirate and the dashing young protagonist in four games by LucasArts, the Monkey Island series. The first is The Secret of Monkey Island, the second is LeChuck’s Revenge: Monkey Island, the third is The Curse of Monkey Island and the fourth is Escape from Monkey Island. Most people would agree that the CMI is far better than EMI (because CMI is classic and EMI is in scary 3D and not as funny as CMI). But the second game in itself is debated to be one of the best games LucasArts has ever created. TAKE THAT, NON-BELIEVING SCUM!

 Guybrush is this (starts out) teenage pirate (later is somewhere between the ages of 18-22; never defined exactly) who, in SMI, just wants to be a pirate. He must prove himself to the Leaders that he is in fact a worthy pirate. In the process he meets his feared-by-all enemy, LeChuck; and also the love of his life, govenor Elaine Marley. If you want to know the rest, just Wikipedia him

 Anyways, I bring him up because just last hour (seventh hour Speech class), I got to research both him and his games. You see, we get to give on speech on whatever and whoever we please. And this, of course, is Guybrush Threepwood. And people, I am soooooo exhilerated to both research this project and present it to the class. Because really, everyone should and needs to know who Guybrush Threepwood is. Like I said earlier, he might be one of the most influential people in my life! He has taught me that it is in fact possible to have a wit sharper than your sword! He has taught me that feeble cannon restraint ropes have nothing on blond, poofy-haired pirates! He has taught me how to insult people with rhymes(ex: Semi-Fearsome Pirate says, “You’re as repulsive as a monkey in a negligee”. Guybrush says, “I look that much like your fiancee?” SEE HOW WITTY THAT IS!?)! He has taught me far more than any textbook or magazine or book of literature ever has and ever will!
