Pass the Buccaneer Burgers, matey

This is straight from a schedule of events at the Museum of the Albemarle in Elizabeth City, N.C. I think a pirate would have to get pretty hungry to be willing to eat a Hot Dog Telescope. And I’m not sure what pirates have to do with potatoes, unless they shot them from their cannons.

May 14, Friday, 5 p.m. – 8 p.m., Dine With A Pirate. Belly up to the table with members of Blackbeard’s crew and feast on Buccaneer Burgers, Hot Dog Telescopes, Gold Nuggets (Tater Tots), Shiver-Me Timbers Chilled Fruit, Land Lover’s (sic) Seaweed (cole slaw).

May 15, Saturday, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Pirate Public Day. Held in conjunction with the Potato Festival, members of Blackbeard’s Crew, a Virginia-based historic reenactor group, will once again invade Museum of the Albemarle for the public to experience a pirate’s way of life through a live encampment and demonstrations. People of all ages will be educated and entertained through opportunities to participate in hands-on activities and open discussions with the pirates.

(Oh, I bet the old pirates had “open discussions” all the time. Such as: “Do you want to walk the plank slowly, or run?”)
