Had to guess on Jolly Roger - I previously only associated the term with the skull and crossbones flag, not a pirate ship.

Yes, that second part of the clue is incorrect. The Jolly Roger is the name for the pirate flag, not the ship.

Correct. The only instance of Jolly Roger being referred to a ship is in the Peter Pan stories.

Holy moly...The Jungle is the least guessed? I thought that book was standard to maybe not read but at least discuss in American History class.

"Jolly Roger" is the name of the flag used by pirates since the early 1700s. Captain Hook's ship was named for the flag, but pirate ships in general are not called Jolly Rogers.

I remember reading a book (a children's story) about a pirate on a ship called the Jolly Roger. I think he means that in popular culture, it's a common name for a pirate ship. Like, has anyone seen that movie, it's a cartoon, where these kids go flying and they get on a pirate ship in space or something like that? I vaguely remember it and I think the ship could have been called the Jolly Roger. Actually, probably not...
