Pirates of the Caribbean (The Curse of the Black Pearl) - "Bootstrap's Bootstraps"
According to two pirates' conversation, Will Turner's father, "Bootstrap Bill" sent a piece of the cured treasure treasure off to his son, saying the pirates "deserved to be cursed".
In retaliation, the mutinous Captain Barbossa "tied a cannon to Bootstrap's "bootstraps" and when last seen, was 'on his way to the crushing depths of Davy Jones' locker'".
Only there are two problems with this scenario.
"Bootstrap Bill", since he also took part in the looting of the cursed treasure, also shared in the curse.
When Captain Barbossa tied a cannon to his "bootstraps", Bill Turner probably remained ALIVE at the bottom of the ocean (we know from elsewhere in the film that the cursed pirates can walk under water) for ages and ages, until the curse was LIFTED by his son....
...and THEN "Bootstrap Bill" probably DROWNED.
I don't think the producers of this film wanted Will Turner to be the cause of his own father's death...
