The Pirate Alphabet

Just because I'm a ninja, I harbor no ill-will toward pirates. Well, usually. This morning my daughter and a friend of hers were watching that most fabulous of kid shows, The Backyardigans. It was an old favorite about pirates. I joked that pirate Kindergarten would be easy because the only letter you'd have to learn was "R" as in "Aaaaarrrrr!"

My daughter turned to me and said, "Daddy, you're forgetting about the X."
