Buccaneer-Americans shirtFor those who are wondering why many of their more Internet-addicted coworkers and associates are adopting a Jack Sparrow accent of late, it's because today is "Talk Like a Pirate Day." Like many holidays, it is steeped in traditions that are more stereotypical than factual. For those of us who are proud of our pirate heritage -- particularly we who are of a copyfighter bent -- we offer this more sensitive and thoughtful pirate pride t-shirt: Buccaneer-Americans. It bespeaks our way of life without resorting to those tired, Disneyfied images of Johnny Depp with eyeliner. Plus, irony!
