Pirate Week: The Goonies

In honor of Pirate week (which includes Talk-Like-A-Pirate Day on September 19), we’re featuring stories about pirates to get you in the nautical mood. For me, pirate movies begin with The Goonies. On the eve of their eviction from their seaside town, a band of friends goes on a sudden adventure to find hidden pirate treasure and save all of their futures.

Do I really need to say anything more about this?

How to Commemorate:

  • Search for hidden treasure (There is still plenty out there!).
  • Visit a place that found hidden treasure (like, you know, a museum).
  • Invent some gadgets.
  • Make a treasure map.
  • Quote the movie (especially “Down here, it’s our time. It’s our time down here!”).

Remember: Goonies never say die!
