    Ahoy ye land lubbers! Yarrr, Scurvy be a disease resulting from a deficiency of vitamin C, which is required for th' synthesis of collagen in humans. Th' chemical name fer vitamin C, ascorbic acid, is derived from th' Latin name of scurvy, scorbutus, which also provides th' adjective scorbutic ("of, characterized by or having to do with scurvy"). Scurvy leads t'th' formation of spots on yer skin, spongy gums, and bleeding from the mucous membranes. The spots are most abundant on yer thighs and legs, an a person with scurvy looks pale, feels depressed, and is partially immobilized. In advanced scurvy there are open, suppurating wounds and loss of teeth.

    Thar be the meaning of Scurvy. So keep yer scurvy to yerselves an pass the oranges, ya salty dogs or I'll keel haul ya.
