The 21st Century Dread Pirate Roberts is… a Drug Dealer

Wesley as the Dread Pirate Roberts
Even Wesley can’t quite believe it

Just as the previous Silk Road operator had done, the new owner called himself “Dread Pirate Roberts” (DPR). The name came from a character in The Princess Bride who passes his piratical business down from one individual to the next, each of whom uses the same name to ensure continuity. So in a move that would seem to tempt fate, the new DPR built another version of Silk Road and restarted the drug marketplace.

Yet another beloved childhood fairy tale has been ruined.
