If You Talk Like A Pirate Today, Krispy Kreme Will Give You Free Doughnuts
Why does it take pirates so long to learn the alphabet? Because they can spend years at C!
Come on guys, humor me -- it's National Talk Like a Pirate Day. Yeah, that's a thing.
You can get two things out of today: The satisfaction of talking like Jack Sparrow and a free donut from Krispy Kreme, savvy?
Here's the fine print from the KK website:
Any swashbuckling guest who talks like a pirate will receive one free Original Glazed doughnut, while fans who dress like a pirate will receive one dozen Original Glazed doughnuts.
But ye be warned -- pick your store wisely.
Not everyone is having luck with the donut promo. Some people claim they've walked into a Krispy Kreme dressed like a massive tool only to be told some stores aren't participating.

Such a scam!!! Tried to receive my doughnuts but was told that it's at "participating locations" and that "basically no locations are going to participate in Tampa." What a joke! You guys make me drive out of my way for a marketing ploy you are sharing all over the internet only to embarrass me in front of everyone else in line - cool. WILL NOT be coming back.
A life at sea was not for Matt Knapp.
