It's a day when we all get to go around giving our imitations of Robert Newton, "Long John Silver," from Treasure Island. It's September 19, Talk Like A Pirate Day.

Anybody remember the "Mexican Spitfire," Lupe Velez? This is a portrait of her from 1929, done by one of the top pin-up artists of all time, Enoch Bolles. Lupe was quite a saucy lass, and could keep your belayin' pin polished, arrrrrr!
