Week 7 (July 27th-31st) Pirates
Yo ho ho and a bottle of… water! Though most pirates are scoundrels and scallywags, the crews that sail the Spicy Seas are more into the pirate aesthetic than any actual pillaging or plundering.

Answers, and probably more questions, abound in this amazingly uncanny and fantastically incredible week.
