E.J. Gold's Galaxy Ezine: Science Fiction, Fantasy . . .
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!"...
