It's Talk Like a Pirate Day!

An' did ye ken that pirates invented Workers' Compensation? 'Tis a fact, and I'll keelhaul the scurvy dog who denies it!

Come to think of it, I've always wanted to keelhaul a scurvy dog. I lack only a keel and a dog... Wait, do dogs even get scurvy?

Well, there are always those anarchist pirate utopiae on Madagascar. Maybe I'll find one there.

I convinced the bakery owner to replace one of the eyes on the smile cookies (big yellow cookies with smiley or frown faces) with an eye patch for TLAPD--a surprising number of customers went for it, too, which was completely entertaining.

Hot damn -- next year, National Holiday! AARRRRRR!

And hooray for the bakery owner, too.
