So does that mean that Captain Jack's *real* last name is Teague too and "Sparrow" is a surname he adopted for his own purposes ?

Ahoy again, my fellow @randomnessoffiction​ !  ‍☠️

I really thought you would ask this… So, that’s the mystery of it all.
It’s really unknown, but I’d say you are on the right “sea lane”.  😂

Sailing through Captain Jack Sparrow confusing story, I’ll try to explain a little bit, what I understand through the years I “met” his story.

1) The Past:

I don’t know if you know about Captain Jack Sparrow past, but it was revealed on the book “Disney Pirates: The Definitive Collector’s Anthology”  that he was named after his uncle (Captain Teague’s brother), Jack, who due to his brother’s last name, can be maybe known as “Jack Teague” (Although there’s no official confirmation about it). With this information, we can maybe rule out the possibility of having two pirates with the same name.
But is there a possibility? Yes.

2) Captain Jack Sparrow’s name: The Original Books Vs. The Movies:

Although neither in the books or in the movies he mentioned his last name, it seems that there are two versions of the origin of “Sparrow”. Keep it in mind that the events in the original books are a little bit different from the movie and sometimes didn’t match. Captain Jack Sparrow’s origin name is one of them:

A) The Book Version:

Since the first book, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Jack Sparrow: The Coming Storm”, we already met him as “Jack Sparrow” and on his “couple years” , something older than 13. It’s not said from where came the “Sparrow” surname, or if he was already named “Jack Sparrow” since birth, but in the end of the first book, he started to want to be called “Captain Jack Sparrow”. 

Later, on the 2007 book “Pirates of the Caribbean: Jack Sparrow: Sins of the Father”, Captain Teague is often referred as “the man who might be dad”, because since his childhood Captain Jack Sparrow was kinda unsure whether he was really his father or not. He also stated that although respected and admired “the man who might be dad”, he did not want to be like the rest of his family. So, maybe he didn’t want to be a “Teague” (although the name of his family was never told). And maybe since childhood he chose another surname/last name to start his own Pirate Life and not be compared to his uncle, Jack (probable) Teague.

B) The Movies Version:

Now, in the movies, it seems that the “Sparrow” was added to his name some years later the events from the first book, only when he was 18. 

On the last movie, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”, during a flashback from Captain Armando Salazar, he remembers the moment he ended up trapped in the Devil’s Triangle after chasing the young Captain Jack: 

“The last of their ships were burning before my eyes. And in that moment of… Victori… It’s when I heard it. One ship was trying to escape through the smoke, and there, in the crow’s nest, there was this young pirate boy. He stood there, looking like a little bird. And from that day he earned himself a name that would… haunt me for the rest of my days. Jack the ‘Sparrow’”

So, in the movies, “Sparrow” is not Captain Jack’s last name, but it was earned by himself as a result of his act of defiance to Salazar’s power.

Also, although Captain Salazar “named” him, he never had the opportunity to tell anyone, once he and his crew died. So, there’s a probability that Jack received the surname “Sparrow” by his own crew. After the battle they gave him gifts as tributes and maybe even gave him the surname “Sparrow” after comparing him to the bird (sparrow) in his nest, being the nest the ship’s crow nest.
Properly named as “Captain Jack Sparrow” (now a real captain name), they were ready to spread his history through the seven seas. 

3) But wait! Why “Sparrow” and not, maybe, “Crow”?

So, if Captain Jack was in the “crow’s” nest why didn’t they nickname him “Jack Crow” instead of Jack Sparrow? Well, this is unknown.
But if we look through its symbolism, crows are often linked to the meaning of bad luck and death, something any pirate want during their travels. On the other hand, did you know that sparrows are a symbol of lust, sexual potency, commonness (lacking of taste and refinement), and vulgarity? And that they are surrounded by a huge number of predators, which make them be very watchful? This all matches exactly with Captain Jack Sparrow behavior.  😂

Anyway, as I said it’s unknown. There’s no official source talking about it, and we can only imagine a little bit. 

Savvy, matey?  ‍☠️

Johnny Depp ‘wanted by Disney for sixth Pirates of the Caribbean movie’:

Please bring him back!!!

Is Johnny Depp Being Considered for ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Reboot? (Report):

Rumors are swirling that Johnny Depp may be making a return to his famous Disney franchise.

According to a new report from We Got This Covered, the 56-year-old actor is being considered to reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow.

As it stands, the sixth film in the series is currently being penned by Craig Mazin and Ted Elliott, although little to no details are known yet about the plot.

The report claims that while Disney allegedly distanced from the actor at first amid his ongoing legal dispute with ex Amber Heard, “following a series of revelations in the court case between the two former spouses, we’re now hearing that the 56 year-old could be set to reprise his Academy Award-nominated signature role in the upcoming sixth movie.”

“According to our intel – which comes from the same sources that told us National Treasure 3 was in development last year, and that Disney was doing an Aladdin sequel well before it was officially announced – the recent turn of events in Depp’s legal battle and the overwhelming support from the public in his favor has some of the Mouse House executives now lobbying for his return behind the scenes. And given that these are the same sources who also said last year that the studio was doing a Bambi live-action remake, we’ve no reason to doubt them.”

Rumors suggest Johnny Depp is back for the next ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ movie! | Inside the Magic:

Please let this be true!!! Please Disney let him visit children in hospitals again!!!

“Wet… Wet
again…” –
Captain Jack Sparrow

HAPPY LEAP
DAY!!!

Today, February 29, is celebrated the “Leap Day”, but wait! It doesn’t mean it
is a day to be jumping around or leaping from places…
The “Leap Day” is a day
to celebrate the extra day we have in 2020, which is a bissextile year. Every
four years, we add an extra day to our calendar to keep it in line with the
Earth’s natural movement around the sun. That means that 2020 gets an extra day
— 366 instead of the typical 365 — and February, an infamously short month,
gets an extra 24 hours.
So, to celebrate this day, some people usually post jumping/leaping photos of themselves or even frogs pictures.

One of them was the “Pirates of the Caribbean” page on Facebook, which shared a behind the scenes photo of Captain Jack
Sparrow’s cliff jump scene (portrayed by Johnny’s stuntman Christopher Leps) in
“Pirates of the Caribbean – On Stranger Tides” and add:

“A day Captain Jack Sparrow waits for
every four years”

The Petition To Bring Johnny Depp Back As Captain Jack Sparrow Hits 148K Signatures | Small Screen:

Petition here: https://www.change.org/p/walt-disney-we-want-johnny-depp-back-as-captain-jack-sparrow

Netizens Want Johnny Depp Back As Jack Sparrow After Amber Heard’s Audio Confession:

Johnny Depp is no longer part of Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise. He played the popular character of Jack Sparrow in the five movies from 2003. However, he was removed following his ex-wife Heard’s allegations that he was violent and abusive.

Just recently, an audio recording of their counseling leaked with Heard confessing that she hit Depp. She also taunted the actor to tell the world that he was the victim and see if many would believe that a man like him would be abused by a woman like her. Following the leakage, the netizens have been campaigning for justice for Depp. They also want Disney to take Depp back as Jack Sparrow.

“I consider
all my tattoos as specific moments in my life. My body is a journal in a way.”
– Johnny Depp, for the Details Magazine, May 1993.

New tattoo: “Res Ipsa Loquitur”

Last
Saturday, February 15, Johnny attended Shepard Fairey’s 50th Birthday in
Los Angeles with his rock friends. He was wearing his camouflage jacket which also had a “middle
finger” new patch on his right pocket, and

a small notebook and pens

on his left pocket, but what really caught people’s attention was the new tattoo
on his collarbone written “Res Ipsa
Loquitur”.

It’s unknown when Johnny did it. It’s really hard to see Johnny
shirtless or wearing a (t)shirt with larger neckline, but sometimes, mostly during premieres or events, Johnny wears his shirt with the first bottoms open.
The last time we
could see his collarbone area was during the “Waiting for the Barbarians” premiere
last September in Italy and during Aerosmith’s “Deuces are Wild” show in October
8.
There’s a high probability that the tattoo was also done after the #JohnnyDeppIsInnocent “party” on twitter last February 2 as a way of showing
his innocence.
As we know, Johnny does not and cannot speak openly about the
case, but he slightly talks about it in different ways, such music lyrics,
jokes and tattoos. As he always said “my tattoos as specific moments in my life”
and he ink them on his skin as if he would do in a journal.
Johnny may never reveals the real meaning, but it doesn’t mean we can’t dig
down and look for unofficial ones:

>>  Meaning:

“Res Ipsa Loquitur”  is Latin for “The thing speaks for
itself”
 a Law doctrine that infers negligence
from the very nature of an accident or injury in the absence of direct evidence
on how any defendant behaved that causes a claimant to suffer:

– Loss or harm


– Emotional distress


– Negligence


– Financial losses


– Physical injuries


– Reputation Injuries


– Invasion of privacy and property


– Defamation


– Product liability


– and many other things.

As we know, ALL of these examples were caused to Johnny throughout the last years by Amber Heard. So, we can see that the tattoo is a direct answer to Ms. Heard’s Hoax
Case showing to the world that the facts and circumstances are so obvious, that there’s no need
to give further evidence or explanation about it.

In other
words: The plaintiff (Johnny) can create a rebuttable presumption of negligence
by the defendant (Amber) by proving that the harm would not ordinarily have
occurred without negligence, that the object that caused the harm was under the
defendant’s control (Amber’s control), and that there are no other plausible
explanations. 

Johnny has evidences, tons of evidences,
showing that he is the victim and NOT the abuser and it requires no further
explanation to show that Amber caused harm to him.

This is the
second tattoo directly related to the Hoax/Defamation Case, after the “SCAM” tattoo his right
knuckle above the middle finger (the same finger Ms. Heard cut off after
throwing a bottle of vodka) and both tattoos has the pretty similar font.

But this
sentence IS NOT something new in Johnny’s life
.
It has some other connections, maybe even working as a tribute, to his
late friend Hunter S. Thompson and his favorite character Captain Jack Sparrow:

>> Hunter S. Thompson.

As we
known, Johnny and Thompson had a really close friendship and the author used
to put the same phrase “Res ipsa loquitur” in his writings, and even in personal invitations.
This is one I took from Hunter S. Thompson’s 1988 book “Gonzo Papers, Vol. 2: Generation of Swine: Tales of Shame and Degradation in the 80′s”.

On the same book, the phrase appears another two times.

>> Captain Jack Sparrow:

In “Pirates of the Caribbean: At the World’s End (2007)”, Johnny as Captain Jack
Sparrow used the same phrase during the “The Brethren Court” sequence at
1h 42 minutes into the movie, in a monologue about either or
not release Calypso and fight.

Captain Hector Barbossa: If you have a better alternative,
please, share.

Captain Jack Sparrow: Cuttlefish.
Aye?  Let us not, dear friends, forget
our dear friends the cuttlefish.
Flippant, glorious, little sausages. Pen ‘em up together and they’ll devour
each other without a second thought. Human nature, isn’t it?… Or….or fish
nature. So yes, we could hole up here well provisioned and well-armed and half
of us would be dead within the month, which seems grim to me any way you slice
it. Or… As my learned colleague so naively suggests, we could release Calypso,
and we can pray that she will be merciful. I rather doubt it. Can we in fact
pretend that she is anything other than a woman scorned, like which fury hell
hath, no? We cannot. Res ipsa loquitur
tabula in naufragio
, we are left with but one option. I agree with, and I
cannot believe the words are comin’ out of me mouth…Hmm… Captain Swann. We must
fight.

This is not a simple tattoo.

This is a reminder of what he suffered and how painful was this path until he finally proved, and make people recognize, that he is a victim.

 Johnny Depp will not be silenced. Res ipso loquitur.
