Anne Bonny

Meet the fierce cross-dresser of the Caribbean! Anne Bonny and her BFF Mary Reed were wanted women on the 7 seas. Granted stealing that English military ship might have been the major reason. Katie and the gal-pals try to reason why Anne Bonny is always pictured with one boob out plus they try to define the perfect booty, we mean treasure.
