Avast, me hearties! This be Talk Like A Pirate Day!
As longtime readers of this blog will recall, there is a growing body of evidence that Shakespeare was a pirate. I propose to add to that body of evidence. But first, a joke:
Q: What has eight ARRRRms, eight legs, and eight eyes?
A: Eight pirates!
Now, consider this recent scholarly discovery. (You can tell that it is scholarly because it involves time-traveling chickens.) Guess who also had eight ARRRRms, hmm?
I rest my case.
