Zombies vs. Pirates

An interesting hypothetical question... and a very difficult one to answer.

Part of the answer may depend on which type of pirate we are discussing, contemporary or historical. Contemporary pirates are obviously better equipped to handle a zombie onslaught, as they have access to all sorts of current technology such as: tracking devices, better transportation, and of course guns that can fire accurately beyond a 3 foot range.
But historical pirates were probably better at handling their impending doom. These pirates did not die of old age. Rather they died of drowning, being stabbed in the back or syphilis. So perhaps their attempts at fighting zombies would be more zealous. On the other hand, overzealous, unthoughtful attacks are a good way to get killed.
So between contemporary and historical pirates the contemporary version would be more likely to survive, due to better technology, and slightly better hygiene. Either type of pirate would most likely fare better than your average Joe Schmoe because of experience, and daily context. They are simply more ready individuals (which is why us Joe Schmoes need Zombie Defense Training).

So who would I bet on in Zombies vs. Pirates? The Pirates, of course, because no evil rotting ghoul is getting my hard earned money.

What about a zombie pirate?

I imagine a zombie with a hook for a hand would be a nasty adversary.

A complete wuss who can't even handle Disney's Headless Horseman cartoon, I would simply lay down and die as soon as I saw the hook hand of a zombie pirate.

A bit too fatalistic? Perhaps. But I can avoid any and all semblance of exercise in the form of zombie training this way.
