Well never let it be said that One Leg Sterling (and a far superior pirate to Sparrow, I might add) don’t have a sense a’ fun. Jes because ole Jack is spinnin’ lies I figure ye all, the best crew there is, should get some swag will we celebrate a month of Pirate hijinks.

An exciting tale of sea-faring during the Napoleonic Wars!
