It's age old maritime tradition that when people cross the Equator, they go from being lowly pollywogs to brave shellbacks. People? More like sheeple? And Equator? More like sheepquator! Despite all logic, science, and visual evidence to the contrary, enlightened folk like you know the world is flat as an LHD and held up by turtles all the way down. That makes everybody a shellback. Literally. So set sail, ye salty dog! Just watch out for the edge.
