Do you know what it is Harrrr.
It be a stink bomb Harrrrrrr.
The pirates would take a piece of cloth and fill it with anything stinky Harrrr.
They would fill it with rotting meat, dead seagulls or other bird, rotten rat, dead mice, or anything else you could think of that stunk so bad Harrrr.
Then they would put a fuse in it and toss it on the other ship Harrrrr. It has been reported after the stink bombs would explode sometimes the sailors would jump off the ship to get away from the smell and to get it off of them Harrrrr.
