National Talk Like a Pirate Day

So today is National Talk Like a Pirate Day. And I have a game to ref tonight, so I can’t wait to walk off a penalty of ten yarrrrrrrrrrds. But in the meantime, here are some fun pirate things.

First, once again, Game of Thrones sets the piracy world record. C’mon HBO, make your HBOGo accessible to all, or at least put put your discs faster. You’ll make way more money.

Second, thanks to Saladin Ahmed’s Twitter account, here are some great true pirate stories about female pirates Ane Bonny, Mary Read, and Ching Shih, as well as a post about gay marriage among pirates.
