Eat up, me ‘earties, yo ho!
Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me!
The pirates landed on Saturday and the Red Coats were no match for the knaves who promptly kidnapped the Governor!
Never fear though, as each district hosts a day of traditional foods and all things old timey Cayman, the good guys have been plotting. Those naughty pirates go on trial tomorrow and I guarantee they’ll be swinging from the gallows by nightfall.
