i wents to walmart and while there passed the dvd section...

ye would not believe what be in the 2 fer $10 giant bin.

there was pyrate booty me tells ye, right there in front of both me eyes.

-blackbeard, starring angus macfadyen: aye, i've read your reviews...

me knows its not historically correct, but hell it be funner than doing nothing at all wid out rum or hangin' waitin' for the crows to pluck ye eyes out!... but wait, says me... it gets betterer!

-buccaneers (never heard of this series in black and white),

the adventures of dan tempest (robert shaw). this is a 3 disk set

with 39 episodes of swashbuckling adventure, ships, swords and the

like... all this on "talk like a pyrate day!" for $5 each!

so the sweet little thing at the register asks:

are you a pyrate? i replies with a question: did ye know that piracy is still punishable by hanging? She answers: no. then i looks at her, smile and says: well now, it wouldnt be a good thing to admit to....

cant wait fer tomorrow, i'm comin' home from work, putting on my garb and watching movies! now where is that salmagundi flavored popcorn?

Tis a grand find, Kidd. I'm sure ye'll enjoy th' both of 'em til they stop workin' fo' ye?

Now... have ye wandered down th' Halloween isle(s) yet? A few piratical things already. Kiddie-ish, but better than they have been in the past. A mighty fine toy pistol, sword, hook (and again, better than they have been in th' past)... gold coins ($1 for a pack o' 2 dozen)... an' more. I was b'side m'self and all grins.

Don't be fo'gettin' the Liars/Pirates Dice! Look fo' that in the games.

Course... then again... the fabric dept is a dangerous place t' be, too.

*The Buccaneers* was a Children's TV show made in England back in the early 50's.

The budget was low, the scripts were done fast and the production schedule was crazy. Keep an eye out on the boats they use to go from ship to shore. Truely funny! (Most of them on wheels)

But everyone was well meaning and they did their best with what they had to work with at the time. The production values got slightly better into the the third season but by today's standards it's pretty sorry. :ph34r:

Enjoy it though! :ph34r:
