When I was a kid, my family got to dress up like Pirates and pose with a "real" Pirate.
Not sure if they used to have an "old fashioned" one (makes me think of The Brady Bunch...and Cousin Oliver *shudder*...anyone remember that one?).
Anyway, just because I feel like sharing, here's the pic:

"I may have invented these bifocals I'm wearing, but I can assure you they're not rose-colored" -Ben Franklin, The American Adventure
