Do you have a thing for pirates? Do you have any desire to talk like one?
B.E.: Pirates are cool. The best ones, for me, are in Muppet Treasure Island, though. There's a whole musical number called "When You're a Professional Pirate" that slays me. Plus, Tim Curry as Long John Silver... My other favorite pirate is the one I wrote into my genie series. Mary Killigrew was one of the few actual female pirates in history and while I did take some major liberties with history there, I think she turned out the way a lady pirate ought to when she finds herself in the 21st century - as the owner of a pawn shop in Las Vegas. =o)
JB: I must admit that I've never gotten the appeal of pirates. I don't even like Jack Sparrow. I assume it's because of my lifelong fear of Captain Hook....tho the Hook on ONCE UPON A TIME isn't so hard to look at....
Tell us Killer Friends: Are eyepatches and wooden legs cool?
