I Wish to be a Pirate?

Wish kid Joshua and his pirate-themed playhouse
Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me!
So begins the raucous sea shanty sung at the iconic Pirates of the Caribbean attraction in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. The song describes pirates as knaves and scoundrels who are known for bad deeds while still remaining beloved by their “mommies and daddies.” But it begs the questions: If they are so bad, then why are they so popular, and why build an attraction in their honor? Why is there a day celebrated by people all around the world dedicated to talking like a pirate?
