GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Arrrr! The sound of pirates filled many a Krispy Kreme shop Thursday as swashbucklers arrived for free doughnuts.

The free "dough-bloons" were served to pirates in honor of the 11th annual Talk Like a Pirate Day celebrated across all the seven seas.

The doughnut shop known for its "Hot and Ready" delights are offering any buccaneer who talks like a pirate a free glazed doughnut.

And if said buccaneer is dressed in his or her pirate garb, they're getting a free dozen glazed doughnuts.

Pirates from across the Upstate were eager for their glazed gold Thursday morning at the Krispy Kreme on South Pleasantburg Drive.

Swashbucklers must wear three of the following items to claim their bounty: pirate hat, pirate shirt, bandana, eye patch, peg-leg, parrot, costume hook and/or knickers.

If you don your pirate garb on Thursday, send your photos to foxcarolinanews@foxcarolina.com or post them on our Facebook page here.
