Last time I'm responding to you Jerk Disease simply because it is extremely pointless to argue when neither of us can be right at this point.
When talking AGOG I used sarcasm and irony. That is indeed hard to follow on the internet so I can understand your confusion. My bad.
Kidd and Caribou are easily comparable. In fact we have been comparing them the whole time. You have been comparing their differences while I have been with their similarities. So even without you knowing it, you have been comparing the two characters.
What a twist ah? There is no way to deny that comparison any longer.
Crock teamed with Luffy due to the circumstances as you said. The same could happen to Caribou. In fact Caribou was trying to make that happen.
Also about the understand Oda thing. Yes my mistake. I see what you meant.
But you still cannot understand Oda. It is impossible. You do indeed do that in the very basics of English classes, but in the very basics of Psychology, you learn it is impossible to understand (completely) someones actions choices, and thoughts completely.
That is the reason I did not try to state something like "ODA WOULD DO THIS FOR SURE". It's because I cannot understand him fully. His manga is also unpredictable. I barely know the guy, aside from his manga. I don't believe that is enough to go off of, to truly be able to predict One Piece, without a lot of luck.
Now I'm going to state one more thing. This whole argument was based of a feeling that I had with Caribou teaming with the Strawhats (for those confused this has nothing to do with him becoming his Nakama) for a select amount of time.
You have a feeling he would not.
Neither of us IS or CAN BE correct until more One Piece is released.
Really this whole arrangement involved a lot of stupidity on both our parts. There are to many loose ends, technicalities, and such that make this argument impossible until Oda releases more manga.
If you cannot understand your flaws (in this argument), the same way I understand my flaws, then there is no point in arguing with someone so stubborn and idiotic.
…I am not even going to ask why there is talk of Caribou being anything less than a disgusting, piece of slime.
Kidd is a cruel, murdering, jackass- a classic Pirate if you will. A criminal. He has some standards tho and an ideology he stands firmly behind. Caribou has no such thing. He might be comic relief at times (he has funny expressions and hilarious moments like the Franky+barrel one-which was funny because it was at his expense and we want to see him suffer) but that doesn't make him any less of a scumbag than what he is. He isn't a character that will have a change of heart anytime soon and I really can't see the Strawhats ever seeing him as a pal or something. It's fine if you like him and all, but please stop a minute and think before you decide that he will definitely join the SHs/be their friend/will end up being a good-hearted character because.. well.. he won't. 'Xept if Oda gets incredibly high and decides to troll us hard. By all means go ahead and write or read a fanfic about him doing that for fun and your own pleasure. Just don't claim it'll come true, not when Caribou is awful even in his inner thoughts. He might be funny but that is simply not enough to make him one of the crew. He is just too much of an asshole for that. And besides, what would his dream be? Capture all the mermaids of the world and sell them as slaves? I can totally see the crew helping him with that!
I feel I need to clear something up.
I don't believe they will become friends. Allies and friends are different.
Compare Croc and Luffy. They allied for a select time, despite their differences, and clearly not liking each other. As Jerk Disease said, they teamed up due to the circumstances.
This is what I believe will happen with the Strawhats and Caribou. Anyone who thinks I meant that he would be their new nakama, with a dream and what not, misunderstood me.
Simply all I meant was, they would team up to help each other, for even a short amount of time. The same way Luffy teamed with Kidd.
