Lights Out, Me Maties

This one has me puzzled: There is a Lights Out Utah program that asks everyone to turn their lights off as part of an educational project on conservation. That makes sense.

The thing that puzzles me is that the organizers scheduled the event on September 19th which, as everybody knows, is Talk Like a Pirate Day.

It is also the day of the The Chili Affair. The Chili Affair is a big fundraising event for the local food bank.

This means that September 19th will be a really bizarre event where people swagger around in the dark with an occasional discharge from the chili saying "Arrrggghhhh."

I hope you all can see why I find this triple threat of events disconcerting.
