Free doughnuts for pirates today

I know a couple of people who could pretty much cater a doughnut party today.

Yes, the rumors are true: Today is “Talk Like a Pirate Day,” and if you play along, Krispy Kreme will give you free glazed dougnnuts.

All day today, anyone who visits the Krispy Kreme at 7777 E. Central and talks like a pirate gets one free Original Glazed doughnut.  Those who walk in wearing full pirate attire get a dozen for free.

I was amused by the list of rules Krispy Kreme shared in a press release. Here they are:

Come to a participating Krispy Kreme location in full pirate costume for one FREE dozen Original Glazed doughnuts. NO WEAPONS ALLOWED!

Talk like a pirate or wear an eye patch to a participating Krispy Kreme shop for one FREE Original Glazed doughnut.

Offer good for one free doughnut per customer who wears an eye patch or talks like a pirate to a Krispy Kreme team member at a participating shop.  One free dozen Original Glazed doughnuts per customer who wears a full pirate costume into a participating Krispy Kreme location. 

Krispy Kreme is open 24 hours, so the offer is good until midnight tonight. For more information, call 316-618-3688.
