That’s about as much pirate-speak as news anchor buccaneer “Long John Johnny Johnson” could muster out when a teleprompter failure
sank the WGN broadcast’s skit:
Thursday’s segment was meant to commemorate International Talk Like a Pirate Day
, held annually on Sept. 19. Instead, Long John Johnny walked the proverbial plank.
In short: Thar he blew it.
Now, somebody, please pass that sad swashbuckler some rum.
