International talk like a pirate day!

    That's right! It be that time of year again. So strap up yer boots, don yer favorite cover and hoist the jolly roger, because it be time to set sail. Whether yer pleasure be grog and wenches or cannons broadside or wealth beyond measure, this be yer day. The ships be ready to raise anchor so be on your best, worst behavior and speak like the pirate ya are. Let no man, woman or child within gulls sight of the seven seas forget that today be yer day of infamy!

    YARRRR!!!

    Harrr!!! Is that all ye got? Why, ya ain't got enough wind in yer sails to get a dingy across a mud puddle. Tilt yer head back and bottoms up, boy. Take a shot of the rot, and put that fire back in yer gut. You'll need to do better then that if ya plan on avoidin' Davey Jones' locker, ya will.

    Seein' as how I have a soft spot for greenhorns such as yerself I'll let ya be a deckhand on me ship. I be searchin' the ports for news a that scruvy seadog Captain Pillowhead. So keep yer head on a swivel and a snap in yer step, cause she's a crafty, old hag and I'd rather be catchin her broadsides unawares.

    I see your point. This is completely out of character, but here goes: shiver my timbers. Better?

    Harr harrr! Well, that be a course I'm not wont to sailin', but I thinks ye' be gettin' the spirit of the piratin' season. Alas, 'tis a shame that pirate talk day only comes but once a year. The world be overly abundant in gibberish and fancy talk and needin' a lot more colorfully placed apostrophes.

    And fer yer information, no self-respectin' pirate be sayin' 'my.' We only use the objective pronouns 'me' and we,' never the possessive forms 'my' and 'our.' That be 'cause any pirate worth his salt knows that person's possessions are objective. Yarr harrr!

    And before I go let me ply yer ear with a stroke of pirate humor.
    What be the same betwixt pirate and pimp?
    We both says YO HO!!!
    Yarrrr harrr!!!

    It gladdens me heart to see me maties joinin' in the celebration. A round of grog on me! No, not ON me ya blubbery baboons! Yaarrrr!!! Ya know what I means. One more down the gullet.


    Thar be no ill-gotten booty greater than the pleasure it would give me to speak as a pirate year roun'. However, as pleasant an endeavor as that may be, I doubt the wench that employs me would appreciate me callin' her such. What be the world comin' to when salty dog pirates such as meself labor at an honest livin' when we should be lobbin' iron over wooden hulls, or through it as the case may be. Yarr!!! How I long to fly the colours of me heart and raise me jolly roger to the world in more than a figurative manner.

    Don't be blowin' up me skirt so fast there matey. There be pirates about these waters that can flap far more proficiently than I. If only they could hold their liqueur as proficiently they would be here waggin' their salty tongues at me 'til I was little more than the dirty rag on some brat's bottom. They got barnacles for teeth and tentacles for tongues, gullets like stove pipes and guts like a witches cauldron, but no mortal were meant to play 'one hundred bottles of rum on the wall' till it's very end. I fear they be risin' from their slumber soon with a terrible fury that would send the leviathan hisself back to the bottom of the depths to hide under Davey's axillary region.

    Then you be no bilge rat 'cause it be ITLAPD as certain as Neptune's mossy beard.

    Say, have you perchance caught wind of the infamous piratess Captain Pillowhead? And where be the sisters? There be too many cutlasses a swingin' in this den of mangy jackals. There be no party without the pretties.

    'Tis been awhile since Captain Pillowhead has been sighted. First Mate Math Is Hard has been sighted, and Cap'n Moonbear should be sailin' into the Cove soon.
