Did You Know? – “Pirates…” Easter-Egg

Here’s a little something for you to chew on:

In 2006, Pirates of the Caribbean closed for a long long while in order to make enhancements to the ride’s technologies as well as to incorporate several characters from the film including Captain Barbossa, Jack Sparrow, and Davy Jones.

In the queue, they added more paintings of those famed pirates.  One of those paintings – Barbossa, in fact – is seen sporting just 4 fingers on his left hand.  Don’t believe me?  Take another look here!


It can be argued that he is hiding that pinky behind his coat, but I prefer to believe that he was in an intense battle and escaped with losing but a mere pinky!

What do you think happened?
