Swim or die by Erry Swim or die by Erry
and that's why Jack Sparrow is the swimmer in the 18'th century.

Really, it was unusual that folks could swim back then. Sailors didn't want to learn to swim because it would only prolong the suffering if they fell overboard.

Just a lazy and silly comic of an old "joke" that goes around here. When people use to sit and brag and lie the line "Pfft, when I was a kid we didn't have swim-schools, we had to learn the hard way. My father threw us in the lake and then we just had to swim or die" and so on.

I imagine Teague would do something similar :)
I have to stop do silly things and do something serious for a change...

Line with ink, colors in PS

Captain Tague, Jack Sparrow (c) Disney

In old time that's how the people learned to swim. They just pushed by other *usually a parent*
It was not like now that one first learns to float rather than swim. :)
