Talking Blackbeard tries to pillage THE BEAST.....

As most of you know my area was hit with a Tornado recently. Well, this happened the night before the annual Blackbeard Festival was scheduled to start. So, the next morning, I headed down with ""THE BEAST"" to offer my services in any way that I could. Well, due to the immense outpouring of help I was turned away as they had, quite literally, hundreds of people there to help. Amazing to see it happen. I do have numerous photos posted on my personal Facebook page of some of the damage and also on the Cargo Cyclist group there as well.

Anyway, as I was heading out I happened to run into the man that plays the Blackbeard character every year. This is the same man that's featured in the History Channel shows about Pirates. We chatted a bit and he told me that since I was flying the "Skull and Crossbones" that, technically, ""THE BEAST"" belonged to him and his Pirates. All in good fun of course. Here's the photo of the attempted ""Pillaging of THE BEAST""........

You know, in order to REALLY get into the Edward Teach character, he should light his beard on fire.

Actually, he does that during the Pirate battles and during some interviews. I happened to run into him as he was heading to an interview with a television station......
