Those Fun-Loving Pirates!
Thanks to Peter Pan, The Pirates of Penzance, The Pirate Movie, Muppet Treasure Island, and The Pirates of the Caribbean ride (among other things), I grew up believing that a pirate was a member of a sea-going performance group. What's with all the singing and dancing? Didn't pirates rob and kill mostly? Our entertainment presents a generally favorable view of the life of a pirate... yo ho.
