On Blackbeard’s Ship: Syphilis Syringe, Rectal Pump

“Also discovered were what’s left of two devices, known as pump clysters, intended for sending fluid into one’s rectum. Researchers plan further investigation to figure out just why the crew needed them.”

This is hilarious. Items found on Blackbeard’s ship. They can’t IMAGINE why a bunch of men at sea together for months at a time would need enemas. No clue whatsoever. Nope, not at all.
