They don't even seem to be trying anymore.
Or am I missing the joke again...?

Their songs include talking about how they've run out of ideas ("Scraping the Barrel") and sold out ("Treasure Chest Party Quest"), a six-second track that exists only to troll the lead singer of Grave Digger ("Rumpelkombo!"), a long running set of anal sex jokes ("Questing on the Poop Deck"), getting both arms and legs chopped off in separate drunken binges ("Wooden Leg!") and going back for revenge only to get cursed and chop their own head off ("Wooden Leg 2: The Woodening"), a cover from the Donkey Kong Country cartoon ("Pirate's Scorn"), or the time they did a bonus disk of an entire album where they replaced the lyrics with dogs barking (take any song from "No Grave But the Sea" and add "For Dogs" to the title), or the song they wrote specifically so you could replace the lyrics with Lady Gaga's "Telephone" and it would match perfectly ("Magnetic North"). If you're taking Alestorm seriously after the first two albums, you're doing it wrong.

there's also they song they wrote that is just the Swedish word for ridiculous, after a guy they where touring with called them that. they credit him as a writer on the song so he gets like a penny royalty check to remind him of them.
