Happy Sea Captain Appreciation Day, I mean Talk Like A Pirate Day!

It’s September 19th, the official National/International Talk Like A Pirate Day of 2016! The nonsense holiday adopted/invented by The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster to fight global warming.

I usually forget this celebration until the day’s half over–but not this time! With Pirates on our mind, we here at FLIM Springfield decided it was time to remember some of the many classic pirate references from the first ten seasons of the show. And, of course, appreciation for The Sea Captain, one of the most enduring members of the Springfield Baggy-Pants Players ensemble.
