The crew of Team Pirate – Cap'n Slappy, Mad Sally, Jezebel the Web 
Wench and meself, Ol' Chumbucket – wish you all a festive freebooter 
holiday season, with plenty o' pillagin' the ol' man in red (try 
slidin' down MY chimney, will ye?) and more than a few tankards of 
whatever holiday libation is yer favorite.

Just have a couple of holiday items to share.

** "Pirate Plunderland" Video

Recently I (Ol' Chumbucket) did a book event at Undercover Books in 
Gallows Bay (great name, huh?) on St. Croix. It was *not* a good venue 
– crowded and disorganized – but I plunged ahead and sang a pirate 
Christmas Carol – "Pirate Plunderland." Mad Sally caught the whole 
thing on video and you can see it by going to our Web site and 
following the link (near the bottom of the page) to youtube. Or else go 
directly to:


And Merry Christmas to ye!


** Classics of Pirate Literature Available

We've mentioned several times (okay, almost incessantly) that we have a 
new book out ("The Pirate Life: Unleashing our Inner Buccaneer") and 
several other books available at our Web site 

But we're not the only game in town. Our friends at BiblioBazaar have 
assembled a library of classic pirate books, many of them long out of 
print, and put them in a special series commemorating International 
Talk Like a Pirate Day. They come complete with a special introduction 
by Cap'n Slappy and meself opining on the allure of the pirate life. 
They'd make a great gift for the pirate in your life - or for yerself. 
You can find them by going to our Web site at:


and scrolling down about two screens. The link is on th our site at:


(B.O.O.M., for the uininitiated, stands for Brotherhood of Oceanic 


And Don't Forget ...

It's not too late (though time is growing short) to order our books, 
T-shirts, mugs, stickers and plenty more to buy gifts for yer piratey 
friends from our CafePress store. Just go to:


And follow the link to "Get your pirate booty!" Ye'll find a whole slew 
of the best pirate merchandise on the Web, if we do say so ourselves.

Once again, Merry Christmas to all of you, and here's hoping you have a 
piratey year all of 2009!

Ol' Chumbucket
