six worst things about the week after Talk Like a Pirate Day

  1. Getting to the mall by 3 am to get the best Blackbeard Friday bargains.
  2. Dealing with the embarassment of being the last on your block to take down your decorative lawn plank.
  3. Two words: parrot guano
  4. Seeing all the lonely, discarded peg legs left by the curb for bulk trash day.
  5. Busting out your fat pants to accomodate for post-pillaging bloat. 
  6. Spending hours on the computer googling +leftovers +recipes +booty
