Shiver me timbers!
Aye buckos, it’s International Talk Like a Pirate Day! This very auspicious day was started aft in t’ day by Ol’ Chumbucket (John Baur) and Cap’n Slappy (Mark Summers) t’ commemorate … Aaaarrrr, Pirates mate!
Rapscalian buccaneers! The day o’ plunderin’ an’ pillagin’ for sweet booty at Krispy Kreme is here!
Peg Legs! Storm th’ ship wit yer trusty scallywag Parrot on y’shoulder and brandish yer rusty Pirate Hook and you’ll come away with a treaaye chest o’ golden rings.
Forgot ye cutlass y’scurvy bilge rat? Arrrr! jus’ Pirate Speak, and those scurvy landlubbers’l toss ye a (glazed) ear-ring, me hearties!
