Description

"Skeletal men blog no recipies!" -- so say the most skeletal pirates ever to plunder the Great Lakes, and that's the byline for Pirates of the Great Lakes.

Theme Song

The Pirates of the Great Lakes theme song is often heard at frat parties. It begins:

No foe, no foe, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we shuffle and mince,
Shut up me hearties, no foe.
We kidnap and ravage and marry a prince,
Shut up me hearties, no foe.

No foe, no foe, a pirate's life for me.
