  1. Seen the move again not long ago and realised how corny it really was!! I’m a pirate, to be sure! I am more mermaid as I love swimming in the sea (rather than sailing on it), enjoy eating raw fish (sashimi), I have a glittering personality, collects sea shells and am a girl! definitely a pirate, I’m always on the lookout for hidden treasures while out shopping & at garage sales.

  2. I’m a mermaid! On good hair days, my long mermaid-like locks turn wavier than the high seas. If im lucky enough i might catch the eye of a cute fisherman 😉

  3. I am more mermaid as I love swimming in the sea (rather than sailing on it), enjoy eating raw fish (sashimi), I have a glittering personality, collects sea shells and am a girl!

  4. I like to think of myself as a pirate. I’m always embarking on some sort of adventure (to the shops), looking for new treasures to steal (the best bargains on the rack from other bargain hunters) and of course swearing like a sailor (when I miss out on a great sale!)

  5. definately pirate – love the thought of sailing the seas finding hidden treasure in beautiful far flung places

  6. A Mermaid….definitely.
    I think pirates are scarey….
    Mermaids are sugar spice and everything nice…. why would you not have a positive start to your day.

  7. Pirate. There’s so much excitement & freedom. It would be amazing to be able to travel anywhere you wanted do what you wanted, to find treasure and be rich beyond your dreams.

  8. I would be a pirate:

    The idea of sailing the seven seas, wind in my hair, sword on my hip searching for that elusive buried treassure……..

  9. Im not one eyed or do fishy business, Im a land lubber through and through, so if I had to chose between the two it would be a pirate without a ship

  10. As a teen I loved the movie ‘Splash’ and so wanted to be Madison the Mermaid (aka Daryl Hannah). Seen the move again not long ago and realised how corny it really was!! Still think I’m a bit of a mermaid though!

  11. Pirate, definitely! I’ve got black & green striped skinny jeans and a tee with a pirate ship on it. I’m a galleon and crew away from being the biggest, baddest thing on the sea.

  12. I’m definitely a pirate – I love my hats too much to be a mermaid, plus you get all the shiny jewels and metals.

    Then you also get the upside of dressing however you see fit and randomly shouting out arrrr.

    Remember: it’s more fun to be a pirate than it is to join the navy!

  13. Aussie girls, we love the ocean,
    Water is a magic potion.
    Swimming, cruising, sun and sea.
    Gorgeous mermaid I’d love to be.

  17. I’d be a pirate for sure ‘coz I am always searching for the treasure chest and have a small dog that could almost pass for a parrot!

    Meandering the shores
    and the water beyond
    Looking for SPUNKY PIRATES

  19. I am a Mermaid…..I have the long flowing hair, sing like a Siren (perhaps a Fog Horn) and have a penchant for sea-faring men…a.k.a. pirates.

  20. Definitly a pirate because I dont like the idea of becoming shark food or being chased all over the ocean buy one as a mermaid.

  21. Ahhh me matey I’ve got the gold in my pocket and the wind in my hair. If department stores were carried on ships, I’d be pirated to rob and steal all that fashion.

  22. Im a Pirate not a myth, Im real with a tainted past
    Dressed all in my gay pirate colours and
    wearing Planks a lot, I look the pirate part

  23. I’m a Mermaid in coats of OPIs
    In Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
    Silver Shatter, Mermaids tears
    Strong, beautiful conquers any pirate fears!

  24. I’m a mermaid, with long luscious locks;
    if it weren’t for all this water I’d be dressed in gorgeous frocks!

  25. Definately a Pirate without the parrot, then I could sidle up to Johnny Depp, and show him that he doesnt need a mermaid.

  26. ssssssssh don’t tell everyone but I’m a mermaid posing as a pirate posing as a dog bloopblooparrrrrrrrghwoof

  27. I’d quite like to be a mermaid but I puzzle over certain aspects of the lifestyle. Like, how do they go to the loo? Where do they plug in their straighters? These things keep me awake at night sometimes…

  28. I am am mermaid BUT if it means that I could get close to Mr Depp! then I’am a pirate, no questions asked!

  29. My parrot said I’m as pretty as a mermaid
    … but only ‘cos he know I’ll make him walk the plank if he doesn’t behave!

  30. Mermaid for sure! I used to be a Pirate when I was younger- roller blading, pyromaniac, always in shorts and a t-shirt. Until I discovered shopping and turned from the tomboy pirate to the princess mermaid!

  31. My hair doesn’t style well at Sea
    Scaly and Fishy, it’s really not me
    A pirate then I would be
    Fat pants, blokes and a parrot named Dee

  32. My hair doesn’t style well at Sea
    Scaly and fishy it’s really not me
    A pirate I would have to be
    fat pants, blokes and a parrot named Dee

  33. I am more Mermaid. The ocean is my second home, I love swimming, diving and exploring the world under the sea.

  34. A pirate’s life for me, I pillage and plunder the pantry cupboard till all is eaten then I nod off sleepin!

  35. A mermaid I may be,
    but be careful of what you see,
    for I may appear to be beautiful,
    but be worse than a pirates evil!

  36. As appealing as a one-eyed, drunken, plundering pirate may be … I’m more of a frolic in the waves, sunbathe on the rocks in a shell bikini kind of girl!

  37. I’m no perfect siren, sitting on a rock,
    So a pirate I’d have to be-
    I’d be jolly happy to receive a call,
    Saying this treasure was coming to me!

  38. I am a pirate for sure. After breastfeeding twins, there is no way I would be putting these saggy boobs of mine on display!

  39. Definitely a mermaid.I am the first person to get in the water, rain or shine,hot or cold.I live for the water!

  40. Oh I’m definately a pirate… a bit disheveled, a bit naughty, a bit charming and totally in need of some styling as well as nail polish 🙂
    And IF by some chance Johnny Depp is around I’m happy to share girls!

  41. A mermaid as I love to swim,
    But I don’t have a big fin.
    I have the smile,
    And I can stay in without crozzling for a while!

  42. Mermaid. Swimming about in the sea, lazily lying around on rocks in the sun. Sounds like the life for me! Pirates – too much like hard work!

  43. Pirate,as a pirate i wouldn’t have to be so accommodating and could do things my way without looking sweet and lovely like Mermaids do.

  44. I am both mermaid and pirate, i love the e the hair down and up for those times of when i get into a mess. Cant wait to see this movie!!!

    One armed bandit that’s me
    Always after some illicit booty!

  46. A beautiful, enchanting mermaid whose masterful cunning and can lure even the most seasoned pirate of his gold. …

  47. Mermaid because I am the mermaid and I am awesome oh yeh and did I tell you I am the mermaid? Oh yeh I did too silly me

  48. i reckon a mermaid, sitting on rocks out in the sea
    tempting sailors with my beauty
    to wreck their ships with my soft songs or distracting men and causing them to fall overboard!

  49. I am definitely more of a mermaid…I’ve got thick long tresses and a penchant for shells and trinkets. I’d love for a pirate to sweep my off my tail though!

  50. With my melodious tones and long, luscious hair, I would use my mermaid wiles and glistening tail to lure the pirates to my Caribbean lair!

  51. With my simmering tail and long hair, I can entrap the pirate (Johnny) with my eyes and take him to the Caribbean Island.

  52. Half half i would think.
    there are times where i am calm, relaxed & soothing like a mermaid drifting along currents
    But i can also turn into a jolly roger fanatic.
    so i guess i’m a PIRATE + MERMAID = MERATE! xD

  53. Definately a pirate..Partying hard, drinking and surrounded by beautiful treasures (diamonds are a girl’s best friend!)plus if Johnny and Orlando on board as well then that’s what heaven must be!

    1. A pirate, I like to horde so I feel like a pirate when I go to trash and treasure markets and find my treasures.

  54. I would be a Mermaid ,swimming in and around the Great Barrier Reef with all that beautiful coral which matches my colourful Tail.

  55. A pirate.. a female one! One that still has the time for her hair, face, nails etc.. well, a girl has to look just right after all and no makeup or hair product is going to last under water!

  56. Avast, me hearties a pirate that I be, life’s pretty good, and why wouldn’t it be? I’m a pirate, after all.

  57. Definitely a pirate if it involves a penchant for all things glittery and treasurelike…do love a gold hoop earring too!

  58. ‘Mermaid’, I always fantasised and dreamt of being a mermaid when i was younger and i am a ‘Pisces’.

  59. I think I would have to be a pirate, because I can be a little bit scary, I love anything that glitters, and I do prefer to not get wet! But I would be a sexy pirate that has learned the art of seduction from the mermaids I meet at sea.

  60. Mermaid ~ I’m definitely at one with the sea and I love to bask in the sun all day sitting lazily on a rock looking glamorous. LOL 🙂

  61. Im a mermaid for sure! When I was little my sister and I used to pretend we were mermaids in the pool in our backyard lol we could spend hours doing it. So Ive had lots of practice 🙂

  62. I would definitely be a mermaid – I have long flowy hair, love to sing and am a big fan of shiny flippers (or shoes). I’m also not averse to the odd topless swim!

  63. I wish I could say mermaid as they are beautiful, alluring and just a little bit deadly but alas I’m more pirate, a little bit rough and tumble and slightly scary =D

  64. Definitely a pirate! Who doesn’t dream of stealing and discovering lost treasures of the world and of the sea! It would be an adventure of a lifetime.

  65. Mermaid because:
    (1)I like wearing my hair down, not hidden in a pirate scarf or hat
    (2)I prefer swimming to cutlass-wielding
    (3) I’d rather be sunning myself in the warm waters of a secluded lagoon than chasing carbuncled ships
    (4) I’m a belly-flop diver, so would have a bad time walking the plank
    (5)I’m not keen on scurvy

  66. A bit of both I think. Hope fully I have some of the femininity of the mermaids but I also think I’m strong and will fight for what I believe and maybe manipulate a little here and there.

  67. A mermaid. Swimming with the dolphins is much more fun than enduring typhoons, scurvy and walking the plank methinks.

  68. I fancy myself as more mermaid than pirate. Mermaids can swim, play and be free. Best of all, turn up where and when they want too.

  69. I’m a mermaid – long flowy hair, love to sing and always a fan of shimmery flippers (or shoes!). Oh, and not averse to the occasional topless swim too!

  70. I think I’m a Free Spirited Mermaid but I think if you ask hubby he’d say I’m a nagging money-taking Pirate! 😉

  71. Definitely a mermaid. I’m a girly girl who loves makeup and nail polish and could never give that up!

  72. I’d like to think of myself as more of a mermaid..glamourous, beautiful and evasive
    But I think maybe I’m more of a pirate..attracted to shiny bling and a bit rough round the edges! Arrrr

  73. I be a Pirate, argh! I love dramatic outfits, boots & hats with feathers, the only thing I don’t have is a parrot…… Would love to try out these OPI shades, especially the silver crackle, good luck everyone!! xx xx

  74. I’m more of a pirate than a mermaid. I swear and drink, and I’d rather be on top of the water than under it.

  75. I drink like a fish yet its usually rum. Bacardi with lime in the salty air, under the sun. I guess I could be either pirate or mermaid but id love to be a mix of the two my life would be made!

  76. I have the eyes of a pirate because I’m drawn to anything sparkly but have the strength of a mermaid because I’m one to swim against the tide.

  77. Definitely a mermaid, too much of a girly girl to be a pirate, although at times I may be capable of acting like one!

  78. I am equal parts pirate AND mermaid! Depends what time of the day you catch me at. I drift between dreamy and ethereal and wild and tough.

  79. Definitely Pirate, I seriously can’t do anything fishy, if I had a fish tail I think I would have to cry, would so much prefer the swashbuckling, rum drinking lifestyle of an adventurous pirate any day.

  80. Well… with two girls in the house I’d have to say mermaid. If I do win, I’ll have to hide the nail polish though, or my girls will want to put a different colour on each nail! NOT a good look!

  81. I would be a pirate as they have much more FUN!! Plus you get to hang out with captain Jack – no complaints about that:)

  82. I would be a pirate. Being a mermaid would be awkward. Not having a bra and having my girls exposed all the time. Not my cup of tea.

  83. Definately Mermaid. I always used to pretend I had long red hair and could swim like Ariel when I was a little girl.

  84. I’m definitely a pirate. I was dubbed Captain Jaffa Cakes by one of my friends a few years ago because all my friends know that I’m a pirate.

  85. I am more pirate. It’s sad but when pirates of the Caribbean first came out my friend and I watched it about 15 times. Eventually we knew all of “Captain Jack”‘s quotes from the movie and were pretty much in love with him. Please poppit, give me this prize! Savvy?

  86. I am definitely a mermaid because, I have been obsessed with mermaids since my childhood!!! I have dressed up as a mermaid many times for costume parties and since lately I have got my new husband to dress up as a pirate (this was before I heard of the movie). To my surprise, it turns out that he in fact loves pirates and those classic ships and he gets into character too! We have a blast together and wining this and getting to see the movie together would be so memorable and something we’ll cherish for years.

  87. I think I would be more mermaid…
    1. I love my hair to be long with beachy waves
    2. I would much rather fish over hot beer
    3. I love the ocean, but hate being stuck on a boat in the middle of nowhere

  88. Im deffinately a mermaid a seductive one that loves my men to be like piratessss argghhh that filthy look is sorta so sexyyyy mmmm 😉

  89. Definitely a pirate for two reasons:
    1 I’d be a hopeless mermaid as I hate putting my head under water
    2 As a pirate, I may just happen to encounter the spunky Jack Sparrow on the high seas!

  90. Im more of a pirate. Im strong, confident, independant & fiesty. I always have my eye on the prize and im not afraid to give the boys a run for their money.
