Thousands of scallywags in costume turned up at The Mariners' Museum in Newport News, Va. They wanted to break the Guinness record for largest pirate gathering. They fell short and may try again next year.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Thousands in costume turned up at The Mariners' Museum. They wanted to break the Guinness World Record for largest pirate gathering.

But shiver me timbers, they fell short and not just by few wooden legs. The museum might give it another heave-ho next year.

Aaargh, its MORNING EDITION.
