It’s Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Avast me hearties, today be International Talk Like a Pirate Day! In observation of this stellar event, let’s take another look at Morgan, the meanest bilge rat who ever sailed the Seven Seas, from Bert I. Gordon‘s The Boy and the Pirates (1960). Here he is enjoying some of that famous pirate’s treasure we’ve heard tell about. (I was going to say “booty,” but that means something else now.)

The Boy and the Pirates

Be off with ye now! Smartly, me lasses and laddies! Go forth and pillage!
