Taken at Sunweaver Space on "Talk Like a Pirate Day" (Sept 19). The USS Monitor when designed and built was highly unusual compared to wooden warships at the time. Besides it being made of iron, it's low profile and rotating turret made it look like a "cheesebox on a raft." While the term was made to poke fun at it, this "pie rat," would see it as complementary.
