Pirate Santa

This Halloween, I'm dressing up as a Pirate Santa.

Instead of saying, "Ho ho ho", I'm going to say, "Har Har Har, ye mangy landlubber. Tells me what ya want for Christmas quickly or I be sending your barnacle-encrusted hide to Davey Jones' locker. Aaarh!"

So Merry Christmas, you scurvy bilge rat! And Happy Halloween. Now hands over the goodies before I makes you walk the plank!

Aaaarh . . .


I Am A Pirate King

In honour of International Talk Like A Pirate Day, I present . . .

The Pirate Movie, from way back in 1982, starred Kristy McNichol, Christopher Atkins, and Ted Hamilton as the Pirate King. It's a campy, and yes, bad, homage to Gilbert and Sullivan's "Pirates of Penzance", one of my favorite operettas of all time (duking it out for first place with "The Mikado"). Anyhow, this movie, bad as it is, remains one of my guilty pleasures.

I don't know how long it will remain there, but if you feel inclined to watch the whole thing, it can also be found on YouTube right here.
