I thought he was going to talk about this scam:

I walk into the DIY store to buy a new garden hose fitting, a paint roller and a 1/8" drill bit. These items are well hidden, even to the Lewis and Clark types like myself, must spend 45 minutes seeking them out.

I leave with the new garden hose instead of the fitting, a 25 pack of paint rollers (Bulk Pricing!), a New 18 volt Dewalt cordless kit that includes a drill, circular saw, jig saw, flashlight, cd player and coffee maker, 2 park benches for the patio, a new gas weed trimmer, a 12 pack of gloss black spray paint, four 10' X 10" tarps, a new pair of boots, 24 light bulbs, 50 sheets of sandpaper and a sandwich.

They were out of 1/8 drill bits, but will have more in tomorrow, so i guess I'll have to go back....

Sheesh, I'm disappointed. A clever guy would sneak in a quick game of 'hide the weenie'...
Every pirate lives for something different. For some, it's the open sea. For others (the masochists), it's the food. For you, it's definitely the fighting. Two things complete your pirate persona: style and swagger. Maybe a little too much swagger sometimes -- but who really cares? Arr!
