Goofy and the Pirate King

Happy 2013! My New Year’s Resolution is to finally write some serious, relevant, thought-provoking posts, and stop monkeying around with silly stuff.

"What be I offered for this winsome Whopper?"

“What be I offered for this winsome Whopper?”

I don’t believe it! It’s the long-awaited reunion of Goofy and the Burger King! There is a sitcom here, I tell you. Disney would make millions. Anyway, as I was saying about my New Year’s resolution… aw crap.

One thought on “Goofy and the Pirate King

  1. Oh, better far to live and die
    under the brave, black flag I fly
    Than ride around with a mug of grog
    In a tiny boat with a talking dog
