A **ditloid** is a puzzle in which a fact must be discerned from the numbers and abbreviated letters in the clue. For example, **7 D in a W** is a ditloid for “7 Days in a Week,” and **20 V on a D** is a ditloid for “20 Vertices on a Dodecahedron.”

Here’s a ditloid in honor of International Talk Like a Pirate Day:

15 M on a D M C

If you have trouble, here’s a hint.

Also for International Talk Like a Pirate Day, some mathy pirate jokes.

Your list inspires these mathy and pirate-y jokes…
