Q: How to understand “shiver me timbers, if he ain’t just what we need, … a cabin boy”?

Shiver me Timbers – this is basically the pirate equivalent of “oh my, isn’t this surprising!”

Everybody knows this expression but only through books. Books about pirates. Supposedly this is what pirates used to say, although we will never know for sure.

I don’t really know whether the pirate captain is being sarcastic or what, whether he really wants to have a cabin boy or whether he would prefer to throw the boy overboard… I don’t really understand his attitude.

Maybe the two men are laughing in a different way… Or maybe the writer is just trying to avoid writing the same word over and over…
