If ye enjoy free food and love the rum-slurred dialect of good ol' Blackbeard, then this Saturday be yer lucky day, matey.
In celebration of the annual International Talk Like a Pirate Day on September 19th, Krispy Kreme and Long John Silver's are each digging up treasure chests full of freebies. No pillaging and plundering necessary.
As in previous years, Krispy Kreme will toss you one of its classic glazed dough lifesavers, provided you speak pirate to them at participating locations. However, if you show up dressed like a proper buccaneer -- with at least three pieces of pirate clothing or accessories -- you'll score some real booty: a free dozen glazed donuts. Shiver me timbers.
