David Letterman Gets New Gig as Pirate


You though David Letterman retired, didn’t you?  Wrong!!

He’s just in a new phase of his life and he’s becoming a pirate.  Arrrrrrrrrggggggghhhhhhhhhh!

Here’s the old Letterman, roasting Donald Trump.

You’ll note he’s just starting on his pirate motif.  Nice beard David.

Well, now he’s moved to a place where pirates  feel right at home – St. Barts – and he’s getting in shape for the pirate life.

Out for a morning run in the sand.  Dreaming about chasing down wenches, no doubt.

That’s dirty pirate look if ever I saw one.  Could someone be threatening to take away his wench?

I don’t think so, that look confirms it.

Letterman, who hasn’t announced his pirate name yet, is not looking back to his former life.

The comedian admitted that while presenting the show he did not realize just how insignificant his job really was, an impression no doubt reinforced by his revolving door of self-important celebrities.

David said: ‘And because of this introspection, you believe that what you are doing is of great importance and that it is affecting mankind wall-to-wall.

‘And then when you get out of it you realize, oh, well, that wasn’t true at all,’ he continued, laughing. ‘It was just silliness. And when that occurred to me, I felt so much better and I realized, geez, I don’t think I care that much about television anymore.

‘I feel foolish for having been misguided by my own ego for so many years.’

That’s pretty much how I felt too David.  Arrrrrrrrrgggggggggghhhhhhhhh.  Welcome to the pirate’s life!
