A WOMAN has been jailed for 122 days after she was found to have stolen a 100-seat passenger ferry - and taunted police by shouting Im Jack Sparrow, Im a pirate!
Alison Whelan boarded the 100-seat Dart Princess river ferry with a friend in Dartmouth, a year ago, after initially undoing mooring ropes because, as she told police, she kept tripping over them.

“played by” (instead of “of.”)
Sure. It makes perfect sense to me.
Wahoo, that girl knows how to party! She looks familiar. I think I used to work with the guy whose Harley she fell off the back of.
I think it just may BE Jack Sparrow!
CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow
Ok. It’s not the Black Pearl, it’s was more like a, uh... tugboat. Ok, I’m not like a Captain Jack Sparrow, I’m more like a Marjorie Main...
Jack Sparrow’s undercarriage, maybe.
Shave off Keef's beard and give him a perm, there ya go.
“Magistrates jailed the woman for 122 days for aggravated vehicle taking, which Whelan denied.”
“51-year-old had got drunk on Lambrini and had ingested deadly nightshade”
Well, she certainly parties like a pirate! Deadly nightshade, where do you even score that nowadays?
“Eye-witnesses reported seeing the double decker ferry drifting on the tide... Whelan, from Devon, continued to taunt the police, yelling What are you going to do now? and I believe this is out of your jurisdiction!”
Ahh, scummy as they may be, it’s really hard not to love pirates, ain’t it?
September 19 of each year is “International Talk Like A Pirate Day,” too. Perhaps she slurred it, but she gets an A for effort.
Indeed it is! I forgot about that. She pulled the crime last year, so maybe a judge with a sense of humor scheduled her sentencing with that in mind?
Nughtshade grows all over the place on the east coast. Bright, red berries.
Don’t eat em.
Out here we have a different one, black nightshade, solanum nigrum. It is said on the net that it is safe to eat, and I’ve eaten the berries a few times, but I still am nervous about eating it.
I’m going to say what everyone is thinking, late night, a few adult beverages...Laz would certainly nail it.
“Dont eat em.”
Don’t worry, I wasn’t planning on it :)
Heck, another four years of Obammy and his demented pals, and you might be reading about a lady named Sara Johnson taking an oil tanker for a joy ride in Houston. ;)
