Pieces of 8




Thanks to the wench Fortune Cookies for reminding me that today is Talk like a Pirate Day...

Here's my Stumpy Chicklet getting into the act complete with parrot and pegleg waddle.

And thanks to Bondbaby for awarding us some pirate booty (that made me giggle)!

And um... some aye - candy :)

I love talk like a Pirate day! Also, Yay for no torn ligaments. I didn't know anything had happened to Chicklet or I would have sent you some healing thoughts.

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

My favorite pirate is Captain Morgan. He just came out with a 100 proof rum. For those who need to get drunk quicker...

Travis said...

Wait...if it's Talk Like a Pirate Day, I wonder if that means that all the sports teams that are pirate-themed will do well this weekend?

Hmmmmm...

Mimi Lenox said...

I tried to talk like a pirate, really I did.

I can't do it.
How can I put a patch over one eye when I only have one side of my face showing? It just doesn't work with my blog wardrobe.
