I might have, but I kinda gave up on the pirate thing. Canada's one-dollar coin has been nicknamed the "loonie" almost since its release because of the loon on the obverse. When the two-dollar coin was released, the only reasonable nickname would have been the "doubloon" (a double loonie). The masses, though, have adopted the ridiculous "twonie" instead. Arrr, she blows.

LOL. I spend a whole lot less time in Canada these days (my parents live in Nova Scotia about half the year, but I don't see them there), and I miss this sort of story. Thanks for sharing.
