E3 09: See Tales of Monkey Island screens, make a pirate pun

It is a longstanding tradition among games journalists that whenever Monkey Island is mentioned, two things must happen: first, the journalist must react with intense joy that one of the greatest adventure game series of all time is once again in the limelight.

Secondly, they must attempt to make some sort of pirate-themed pun. I’m short on time, however, and must rely on you to mentally insert a phrase like “arrrre you ready for more Monkey Island” or “Monkey Island screenshots depict swashes being buckled” while looking at these screenshots and concept art from Telltale’s new episodic adventure game series, Tales of Monkey Island.
