Free Donuts For Pirates At Krispy Kreme This Wednesday

Do you plunder and pillage? Do you favor parrots, eye patches and fancy hats? If so, then you might be able to score a free donut — or maybe even a free dozen donuts — from Krispy Kreme this Wednesday.

In honor of National Talk Like A Pirate Day — our favorite holiday next to National HP Toner Month — Krispy Kreme is giving away free glazed donuts to people who show up on Wednesday and utter one of the following pirate catch phrases — Ahoy Matey, Blow Me Down, Heave Ho, Landlubber, Sea Dog, Thar She Blows, Yo Ho Ho.

And if you happen to go full-pirate, you can help yourself to a dozen glazed treats before you get back to making treasure maps with helpful illustrations and curvy dotted lines and a big X for where you buried your booty.

As it points out in the fine print “No Weapons Allowed,” so keep your sword back on your dinghy with your first mate or something like that.

    That’s my wife’s least favorite day of the year. I talk like a pirate all day and occasionally slap myself on the butt and shout “Check out me booty!”.

    I love Pirate Day!

    I wrote a blog post a couple years ago for those stuck at work on the day; reran it, as someone in my chat room said they wouldn’t get to celebrate.

    I find this highly ironic as a faction of liberty activists in Arizona refer to cops as ‘pirates’ (as in pulling you over and robbing you on the highway for victimless crimes)

    This is a sad sick joke.

    Jolly Pirate donuts rock. Krispy Krap can’t even compare.

    All this does is make me want to fly back north for a genuine donut fix.

    I guess the husband is getting a free donut for breakfast tomorrow, since our city is on the list.
