Hi Ya'll
I've not been around here for awhile, but I just saw the preview for that new Johnny Depp movie - The Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest, and I noticed that the "bad guy" pirate (I've no idea what his name is) posesses an animated beard distinctly similar to that of our good old friend the evil pirate Le Chuck's (of Monkey Island fame ) squiggly facial hair.....

Is this a huge conspiracy, or am I just drinking way too much coffee

Anyways, you can check out the trailer/preview here if you feel like it -

It's probably the coffee, but the similarity IS striking (to me anyway )

Barbarossa in the first movie looked a lot like Le Chuck (at least in his zombified form)

Too true! - Although Mister Bloom lacks that certain Spunk™ that Guybrush Threepwood had...

.....Come to think of it, I reckon he's pretty much Spunk™less in general; but that, of course, is just my humble opinion...

Personally I've always considered Pirates of the Carribean the official movie of Monkey Island.

Wouldn't that be the UNofficial movie of Monkey Island?
