AM New York (free newspaper, woot woot) had an article about it which started like this: “He’s one pirate we wouldn’t mind walking the plank for.”

Here’s the wikipedia (free online encyclopedia, woot woot) definition of “walking the plank”
Walking the plank was a form of murder or torture thought to have been practiced by pirates, mutineers and other rogue seafarers. The victim was forced to walk off the end of a wooden plank or beam extended over the side of a ship, falling into the water to drown, sometimes with bound hands or weighed down, often into the vicinity of sharks (which would often follow ships).
Johnny Depp is that sexy? “He’s one pirate we wouldn’t mind being tortured and murdered by.”
