    I think it's funny that an 18th Century Pirate would use a term that I've only heard in reference to WW2 battle ships and Carriers.."Superstructure".

    I beleive the superstructure part is referring to the redhead and her vamping the guys across the way, and if I am not mistaken the term refers to showing the metal brace thing they used in dresses at the time to keep their shape. Except I think its a more of a slang term for it, with the meaning not to show too much under the clothes (at least not yet ).

    As I understand the scene; the auctioneer is trying to sell the larger lady, but meanwhile the redhead is vamping the guys at the same time.

    Yeah, my boyfriend did too. Then again, he wanted Jessica too. (Can you tell it was his first trip to Disneyland since he was little?)

    Anwyay, I remember the change to make POTC more PC with the women chasing the men in the scene where the fire first breaks out (right after the auction actually). My mom pointed it out to me as she had learned of the change. I thought it was odd and personally I don't understand why we are trying to change the past. Women were nothings in that tims, so why try to change it now? Oh well. What's done is done. The worst part is all of the gum under the bridge. Disneyland does not sell gum in the park for this reason and because it can be annoying when people chew on it like cows. I wish they could fix that.

    While I don't like the changes made, I suppose I can understand the reasoning behind it. Essentially, we had 2 or 3 men chasing 2 or 3 women, followed by 1 woman chasing 1 old man. This was a pretty funny joke, I always felt. But if you really think about why the men were chasing the women, then it becomes joking about rape. Not the kind of thing to be laughed about in a family theme park.

    So put in this context, it's understandable why they made the change. But it doesn't mean you have to like it!

    You know, this actually points out a problem in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. There are referrences to the "port" side of the ship, which is inaccurate for the time. The left side of the ship was always referred to as larboard until the 1800s.
