FilkerTom -- Talk Like A Pirate Day - Live at CapriCon 2008

FilkerTom Smith In February 2008, John "Ol' Chumbucket" Baur and Mark "Cap'n Slappy" Summers (reknown throughout the civilized world as "The Pirate Guys") attended their first SF/F convention, CapriCon in Chicagoland. At the Opening Ceremonies, they were joined on stage by Tom Smith, and all of 'em sang Tom's ode to their wonderful holiday, Talk Like A Pirate Day.
The audience laughter during the first bridge is prompted by something you can't see: There were a couple o' bilge rats in the shanty behind Cap'n Slappy, and one of 'em held a lighter out the window. At least he didn't yell "FREEBIRD!"...
