Dress like a pirate and get a dozen free doughnuts Thursday (and you don’t even have to walk the plank)

My wooden leg is in storage (if the termites haven’t gotten to it) but for all you pirates out there, Thursday, Sept. 19 is your chance to score a box of doughnuts or at least one at your nearest Krispy Kreme shop.

If you come in full pirate attire for Talk like a Pirate Day (that means at least three pirate-type items…eye patch, pirate hook, earrings, pirate shirt, parrot, bandana, peg leg, boots or brown sandals, pirate hat, knickers, gold or silver necklace) you get a free dozen box of Original Glazed doughnuts.

You can get one doughnut if you just talk like a pirate if you aren’t in the mood for accessorizing.
