Digital Playground's Pirates
has received its 40th award, most recently from the euthanasia-phobic country/continent combo of Australia, thus cruelly extending the life of the movie through a proven but inhumane cocktail of awards and press releases.
"Thank you for this award, Australasia," a weeping Pirates
breathed into a microphone while mournful digeridoos played in the background and kangaroos were shot in the dusty street. "Now would you please kill me?"

has been a milestone to the adult video industry worldwide," shrieked immortal Pirates
star Jesse Jane. "As this movie has become more popular and visible internationally, our industry has gained acceptance and as a result, it is more accepted as a legitimate source of entertainment."
"LEGITIMATE SOURCE OF ENTERTAINMENT," affirmed Teagan Presley.
"BRAINS," added some zombies.
The Australian Adult Industry Awards granted its inaugural International Hall of Fame prize to Pirates
director Joone, who carefully kept a lit cigarette away from Pirates

: Oh no no no. You won't die until Blu Ray does.
