Happy International Talk-Like-A-Pirate Day! Woohoo! I mean, uhh, aaaargh argh argh argh me booty n' ye swab wit' me gob in the gonk. I don't know. But I do know that in honor of International Talk-Like-A-Pirate Day, I've written an article for Quirk Books on my Top 10 Fictional Pirates of all time. I also know that EL James, author of the bestselling and highly controversial 50 Shades book series, retweeted my article. So if her follow up novel is a Momerotica Pirate epic -- well, now you know who to blame.
