No Love For Shopping Pirates

Recently eaten: pesto tortellini
Recent annoyance: lukewarm AC

It's a good thing I didn't join that WAKA kickball team, Bazooka Joe's.

Man arrested in NYC Macy's for carrying sword
A man who was carrying a rusted pirate-style sword through Macy's flagship store in Manhattan is facing charges of criminal possession of a weapon.

Police say 29-year-old Lawrence Jackson was brandishing the curved sword while visiting Macy's Herald Square store Sunday with his girlfriend.

He told police he was carrying the sword because he is a member of a kickball team whose players often wear pirate-themed costumes. He maintains he was on his way to a game when he was arrested.

"...and, booty, YAR!"
