Pirates Gather In Attempt To Set New World Record

By June 1, 2014

Follow me on:

Pirate!Thousands of pirates gathered in (where else?) Penzance, England in an attempt to show the world they have more scallywags than anyone else.

The pirate gathering was supposed to break the record for "largest gathering of pirates," but a few too many walked the plank: with 14,154 pirates gathered, they fell 77 rascals, scoundrels, villains and knaves short of the record.

The BBC reports that organizers had been hoping for 20,000 pirates.

There's always next year, mateys.

In the meantime, you can gaze upon yonder visage of the many fine pirate costumes from the gathering in my new photo collection.
