Welcome to Tuesday, and of course, Eastern Orthodox Talk Like a Pirate Day.
That’s a lot easier to work with, accent-wise, than Talk Like an Eastern Orthodox Pirate Day, which is a totally different thing.
Since Joan McCarter will be on hand, we’ll be talking like a very particular type of pirate. That is, the kind that seeks annually to hijack the budget process and shut down the government unless he gets his most favoritest, special wish.
That’s an accent we’re all used to, of course. Longtime listeners of the show will recognize this as approximately the 25th time we’ve discussed the mechanics of engineering or avoiding a government shutdown.
But just to spice things up a little, we can also talk about current trends in espionage and kidnapping, as well.
