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.

Long before the Superdome
Where the Saints of football play…
Lived a city that the damned call home
Hear their hellish rondelet…
Home of pirates, drunks and whores
Tacky overpriced souvenir stores
If you want to go to hell, you should take a trip
To the Sodom and Gomorrah of the Mississip’
Stinking, Rotten, vomiting, vile
Putrid, brackish, maggotty, foul
Crummy, lousy, rancid, and rank
Did we catch ALL the references? Probably not. Let us know which ones we missed in the comments. More importantly: Remember by talking like a pirate, with your help, we can stop global warming, and make the world safe for real scientific research.
