Aye, by the Powers! This be the Nineteenth of September, when ye strap on yer eyepatch, dust off the parrot, and spend the day talkin’ piratical, buccaneery, and even buckle the swash, by my oath. ‘Tis one of our favorite holidays at RedState, so expect to hear a goodly bit of the Arrrring from those who keep true to the Code.  And If you be wonderin’ after what all this be about, the details can be found at this fine site; ye can get yer piratical name here or here. Seize and sink me otherwise.

I say now that this be a thread open to all.  With a curse.
