This strip is my 2006 contribution to International Talk Like a Pirate Day, 2006.
I will, however, not be talking like a pirate in the commentary.
Instead, I want to talk about the spinach thing. I refuse to throw away a perfectly good Popeye joke just because International Talk Like a Pirate Day happened to be the week after someone took a shit in the national spinach supply.
Not only will I not do topical jokes, I will not let the topic of the day stop me from releasing a coincidental joke. I didn’t do it when Columbia disintegrated, I didn’t do it when John Walton crashed his experimental plane, and I am not doing it now.
Screw current events, today I be a pirate. Arrrrrr!
