Screaming Sheep! It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day in Carleton Place


Ahoy me hearties!



Sunday October 25th at 1:00pm. We hope to see you there!!

Batton down the hatches!!!  The Pirate Wimmin are taking over Carleton Place immediately! I have come here personally to rally the troops along with my sceaming sheep. It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day!

My name is General General and  I’ve got me one hell of a cat’ o nine tales to whip any landlubber or Buccanneer that does not shipshape.

Believe me I know how to use the thing and I can make you feed the fish in no time if yer not careful.

You see, we have come to pillage and plunder the land of Carleton Place, and I don’t want yer pieces of eight, or yer Jolly Rodgers.

The Wimmin Pirateers have been sent out to save ye all from the insanity, as we have waited and waited in the Crow’s Nest for months to see Junkyard Symphony.

Arrrgh, me maties! Thar be teenie, tiny life preservers covered in sugar to starboard. Avast!

Time to plunder the lubbers. There she blows!!
