Wednesday happens to be Talk Like a Pirate Day, and to celebrate Krispy Kreme is giving away a free original glazed doughnut to anyone who visits a store and talks like a pirate.

Sounds like a good deal, but a true pirate is always on the lookout for bigger treasure. If you want to up your bounty, you'll have to don an entire pirate outfit. Put on your best pirate hat, eye patch, red velvet coat, frilly shirt and black boots to receive a free dozen original glazed doughnuts.

We're in favor of doughnuts of any kind, especially free ones, so here's some pirate lingo to help you find your treasure:

Shiver me timbers

Blow me down

Heave ho

Scurvy dog



Fair winds and good luck, mateys!


Recipe: Devil's food doughnuts

Recipe: Yeast raised doughnuts

Have a doughnut, or two and celebrate National Doughnut Day
