Boy did I almost blow it. Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. ARRRGH. We here at The Puppy have a long standing tradition of all things Pirate.
That if you think 2007 is “Way Back When”. Our journey into all things Pirate started with Bryan Killian (16). He was kicked out of school for dressing as a pirate. AAARRGH. Furthermore, Killian professes to follow “Pastafarianism”. Pastafarians follow the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and believe that the world was created by the touch of his noodly appendage. Furthermore, they acknowledge pirates as being ‘absolute divine beings’, and stress that the worldwide decline in the number of pirates has directly led to global warming.
The North Buncombe County School Board ruled that Killian’s eye patch was “disruptive”. His mother, while sympathetic to her son’s viewpoint, sided with the School Board.
Killian has since returned to school, sans patch.

The QAR is part restaurant, part Pirate Museum. Number One Son worked for them for years. Great food at great prices. Ironically, they serve great pasta.
