* ''ArmstrongAndMiller'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAbzVx4eOdw parodied]] this in a sketch which involves random people getting press-ganged by the Royal Navy into joining the "South Harbour Club Patrol" after buying t-shirts reading exactly that. And if that concept isn't 18th century enough, then Somali pirates attack South Harbour... by firing audible cannon broadsides.
