Pirating During a Pandemic

Today we will fly our Jolly Rogers at half-mast, as we lift that first ration of rum in memory of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. To the family, friends, and all who are feeling the pain and loss of this intrepid soul, we pray for fair winds and following seas. But like that ever-dauntless and somewhat notorious great lady, we will sail through the storm and make for safe harbor so we can properly celebrate her life on this the 18th anniversary of Talk Like a Pirate Day!

In keeping with the current health concerns, we have listed below the standard protocols of the day along with further recommendations by the CDC (Center for Deck Control) in order to keep all captains and crews safe while pirating during a pandemic.

  • Always put your best peg-leg forward.
  • Remember to press your pantaloons.
  • Compliment the fit and finish of your shipmate’s puffy shirt.
  • Never fly your Jolly Roger above the Stars and Stripes.
  • Buy your crew the next round of Grog.
  • Extend your hook to one in need.
  • Never wear more than one eye patch while steering the ship.
  • Share your booty with the less fortunate.
  • And always let your parrot have the last word!

(Additional 2020 Recommendations)

  • Swab and sanitize often.
  • Wash your hooks for at least 20 seconds.
  • Maintain a distance of six feet between those walking the plank.
  • Boarding parties should be limited to no more than 10.
  • Mutiny against any captain that suggests injecting grog as a cure for COVID.

Wishing All Me Hearties Another Safe and Superb Talk Like a Pirate Day!
