It’s a full-sized statue of a buxom pirate on display at an antique shop in Girardville, Pennsylvania. It would look fabulous by the doorway to my house.
This is not just an infatuation with pirates or cleavage, however. This pirate is special. A Catholic priest in Girardville was so irritated at it that he cursed the statue.
Father Commolly commanded the owners to remove it.
“He pointed to the statue and very dictatorially and said, ‘I curse you. I curse this place. I want to see this destroyed. I want her destroyed,'” said pirate owner Peggy Kanigoski.
The madman! With one stroke, he has greatly increased the value of the object, and has probably moved it way out of my price range. Now it’s not only a pirate statue, it’s a cursed pirate statue. And it would be even more appropriate at my house.
<sigh> It would probably get me cursed by the Trophy Wife, anyway.
