I was just about to compose a new post for the Pegasus Pulp blog, when a strange fellow with a peg leg and a parrot on his shoulder suddenly appeared in my office. His name, he announced in a strange accent, was Black Blade Budd and he was taking over my blog in the name of International Talk Like a Pirate Day. And since he had a cutlass and a flintlock pistol and looked as if he knew how to use them, I wasn’t inclined to argue with him.
Once Black Blade Budd learned that I have more than one blog, he insisted on capering my personal blog as well. So here is Black Blade Budd’s message:
