Davy Jones

This same Davy Jones, according to sailors, is the fiend that presides over all the evil spirits of the deep, and is often seen in various shapes, perching among the rigging on the eve of hurricanes, ship-wrecks, and other disasters to which sea-faring life is exposed, warning the devoted wretch of death and woe.*

    I've thought about the grim sailor for years every time the Monkees were mentioned. Vengeful Sea Monkees, they be.
