Arrrrr. Let us begin a rude day with a rude picture.



I do protest, though, that Cap’n Blackbeard looked nothin’ like that (he had two hands and a snaky tangle of a beard), and there is a great missed opportunity here. Blackbeard knotted lit matchcords in his hair and beard so they’d glow and hiss and smoke in battle—why not render the brute with the product tied into his flowin’ locks?

(Alas, Pharyngula does not yet have a pirate mode restored, so don’t be expectin’ an excess of piratical nonsense today.)

(Some of you will be greatly relieved.)
