Not long ago, a nine-year-old girl attending Meridien Primary School outside London, wrote the following letter:
Captain Jack Sparrow, At Meridian Primary School, we are a bunch of budding young pirates and we were having a bit of trouble mutiny-ing against the teachers, and we'd love if you could come and help.
Beatrice Delap, aged nine, a budding pirate.
Much to Beatrice Delap's surprise, Captain Jack Sparrow actually showed up earlier this week, as caught here by crude cell phone video:
Yes, that really is Johnny Depp, who went to the school on a lark (He's in London filming "Pirates of the Caribbean 4"). The school was told just ten minutes beforehand that Depp would be arriving, and shortly thereafter two blacked-out cars swept through the school gates. Depp reportedly gave Beatrice a hug and said, "Maybe we shouldn't mutiny today 'cos there are police outside monitoring me."
