Did you know today is Talk Like A Pirate Day? That's okay if you didn't send a Hallmark card. What is important is that you celebrate it properly, possibly with Captain Morgan's rum, and most definitely with a great pirate movie from the '80s. There are actually plenty to choose from. But when I say "great," I really mean "barely tolerable."

Seriously though, if you've never seen Nate and Hayes, you need to find a copy. Written by John Hughes, it's pretty fantastic.
