Crunch had grown so rich, he wanted to retire. He took me to his cabin and he told me his secret. 'I am not Cap'n Crunch' he said. 'My name is Ryan; I inherited the ship from the previous Cap'n Crunch , just as you will inherit it from me. The man I inherited it from is not the real Cap'n Crunch either. His name was Cummerbund. The real Crunch has been retired 15 years and living like a king in Patagonia.'

Then he explained the name was the important thing for inspiring the necessary desire. You see, no one would eat a cereal called Cap'n Westley. So we sailed ashore, took on an entirely new crew and he stayed aboard for awhile as first mate, all the time calling me Crunch. Once the crew believed, he left the ship and I have been Crunch ever since.

A commander in command of a vessel, which Horatio Magellan Crunch clearly is, would properly be addressed as "Captain."

cgraves67: Isn't it the case that any naval officer in command of a ship is referred to as Captain even if his rank is below that of Captain?


I came here to say this, almost verbatim.

Trivia:  When an Army captain is aboard a Navy ship, he is referred as 'Major', since there is only one
captain on any ship.  And a Naval Captain is equivalent in rank to an Army Colonel.

Yes that is the case any officer despite rank that is in charge of a vessel is called captain.

Old Kelsey should be wearing, at a minimum, his highest three ribbons while wearing that shirt.

First of all he's a "cap'n" not a "captain". Second, maybe the ranks of the breakfast cereal navy are different.

You have no idea whose navy he sailed for. Maybe that's how his country lists the rank of Captain.

/Insert "Leave Capt. Crunch Alone!" photo/

And before you guys start, Count Chocula was a real count. Not one of those guys that show up and get bestowed with a 'honorary' title. Like those guys who go to The Independent Nation of Phoenix, pay a couple of bucks and get the title of their choosing.

RexTalionis: For instance, here's Sir Edward Pellew - he's wearing a late 18th century Captain's Uniform with two cuffbands.


That painting was made in 1804, when he was promoted to Rear Admiral.

Uh, any officer in charge of a vessel is typically referred to as "captain," even if that's not their officially designated rank.

Seaman Crunch sounds like a condition you really should have a doctor check out.
