"I have no say in it, Gibbs. It's a pirate's life for me. Savvy?"

"Who's to say I won't live forever, eh?"

Before anyone says anything, yes, we celebrated the 50th birthday of Penélope Cruz and the 13th anniversary of On Stranger Tides, but overlooked this, though I suppose one can't top the 60th birthday which was sadly overlooked in other ways. There must be something in the air because June 9 has come and gone, but it is never too late to say...HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOHNNY DEPP! The man, the myth and legend, who created the infamous Captain Jack Sparrow, captain of the Wicked Wench/Black Pearl and arguably the most notorious pirate of the Caribbean, brought to life (pirate's life, that is) across all media, including but not limited to five featured films, one video game, and two Disney attractions.

As such, I figured I would honor Jack (er, Captain Jack!) by updating one or two things in our Wiki's design, as you may see. A minor, yet probably not minor, change in the Wiki light and dark backgrounds as well as the quote up top of every Wiki page you see. It's not much, and who knows if we may do more in the near future, but for now hopefully it will be enough to honor our beloved captain.

"The ship is ours!"

Regardless on how you feel about the current state of the Pirates franchise, and what may come in the future (good, bad, ugly, or revolting) with the upcoming "reboot" as producer Jerry Bruckheimer calls it, let's just focus on more happier thoughts for now. We've had over five adventures with Johnny Depp and his dreadlocks, gold teeth, and a very nice hat. Please comment below and share some love for Mr. Depp, even though we know his first and only love is the sea...and rum!
