I'm not a scurvy buchaneer

Question

Posted · Report post

A blade to my nose is applied

With plank o'er abyss to my side

Urged foward to creep

Then finally to leap

Pray fins could preserve my poor hide

You are correct... in that it doesn't really explain the plank clue

While that's what it's written to sound like, the title of the riddle rules out anything having to do with a scurvy buckaneer or the like, as is the typical way of my riddling style

A jet?

A mug o' grog for the sea dog with the lance!
it's about a propeller-driven plane rather than a jet, to fit the clue about a blade at the nose

the poll must have disappeared after some editing, putting it back up

has apparently found a bug in the way polling handles poll options with simply a space; unfortunately this seems to be only an annoyance that doesn't have any real potential to be expoited toward humorous effect

Hey plasmid. Yeah, prop works best. I was thinking of a pitot/static probe on fighter jets.
