Reason #87 I'm Glad I still have my job:

My favorite kid is in kindergarten now, so he isn't coming to story time anymore.

But he did come to my Swashbuckler's Academy program a few weeks ago (You know, for International Talk Like a Pirate Day!)

We had a great time. I told them my best pirate jokes:

"What's a pirates favorite body part?"
        "His arrrrrrrrrm!"
"How does a pirate get to work?"
        "In his carrrrrrrrrr!"
"What branch of the military does a pirate join"
        They say "The arrrrrrrrrmy!" and I say "No! The navy!"

And then I made the mistake of asking if anyone else knew a pirate joke.

This is what I get. From a six year old.

"A pirate walks into a bar
The bartender said 'Hey, what are you doing with that steering wheel on your nuts?'
The pirate said 'It be driving me nuts'"

I looked it up, it was supposed to go something like this:

"A pirate walks into a bar.
The bartender says 'Hey, do you know you have a steering wheel attached to the front of your pantaloons?'
The pirate says 'Yarrr..... it's driving me nuts.'"

The other kids and their parents stared on in gap mouthed amazement...
