Finally Jack Sparrow is ashore and all he wants is a drink. Unfortunately, he has landed at Martha’s Vineyard. He must sign his order or go dry. God speed Jack Sparrow.

It is a well known fact that In the 1800’s Martha’s Vineyard town folk (both deaf and hearing) used Sign Language since a large percentage of the people living on the island were deaf. Going to the doctor, butcher, or to the local pub provided equal access to deaf people but not necessarily to pirates.

Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of rum!
