In the The Lego Movie rule 1 of the sea is "Never sit on a pirates face".

For reference, this is covered when they are breaking into the Octon tower, and Metalbeard disguises himself as a photocopier. Just after this one of the robots photocopies its butt, which enrages the metal-pirate.

Just after the above, Metalbeard states the rule, and the scene cuts back to his ship, where there were a bunch of other rules of the sea.

Is there a complete list of "Metalbeard's Rules of the Sea"?

  • This seems like it would be a better fit over on the Movies and TV stack. It doesn't really deal with either the sci-fi or fantasy elements of the movie.

    @Monty129 - It's got Batman, Superman, Star Wars and Green Lantern and you think it's not suited for here?
