Here’s the scuttlebutt, scallywags: Today be Talk Like a Pirate Day! Yarr!
Meet Pirate Limber-Jack.
Me latest video features a Limber-Jack dancin’ toy. It’s believed this charming toy originated in the old country of Ireland. Immigrants brought their Limber-Jacks with them to America.
My poor Limber-Jack was stark naked when I bought him.
So, I dressed him up for Talk Like a Pirate Day.
It’s obvious in the video that I need a lot more practice hitting the board for my Limber-Jack to have better rhythm. I’m working on it!
