The Mercied is pleased to welcome two new "guest posters" to the party. Everyone give a round of applesause to.... Monkey Lung and The Bard!!!

Okay, maybe three exclamation points is overdoing it just a bit, but really, I'm pleased to have them initiate posts on their own every now and again. They're going to do it anyway by proxy, so I figured I'd just make it official. Blog away, ye scurrrrrrvy mates!

Welcome. :- ) But what's up with the scurrrrvy mates? Ya'll running out of oranges up there?

Thank you, thank you very much for that lovely welcome. I cannot speak for the bard but I have not noticed any gingivitis, petechiae, weakness, or bleeding typically associated with defective collagen cross-linking, so I too would question Becca's reference. I do not believe it is National Talk Like a Pirate Day http://www.talklikeapirate.com/piratehome.html
But perhaps I am mistaken. Fun fact: Humans (plus a few higher primates) and guinea pigs are the only two known organisms that cannot synthesize vitamin C and thus are susceptible to scurvy. Based on this fact, I have long held that "The Scorbutic Guinea Pigs" would make an excellent name for a rock band. This theory has proven to be highly controversial however.

It's my own personal blog like a pirate day, so get over it. If you missed the memo it's probably because I didn't send it.

Monkey Lung, I wanna meet you. You're crackin' me up. Do you give Talk Like a Pirate lessons?
