Arrgh.  Ahoy maties.  Do you speak pirate?  Or are you more of a cowboy and nastier than week-old chili and twice as gassy?  In this tale, we find some pirates looking for a place to bury their bounty.  When they wander into a town, they find out that there is definitely a language barrier.  The pirates don't understand what the cowboys are saying.  And the cowboys are getting angry since they don't know what the pirates are talking about.  Can these two find common ground?
