Avast! Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Arrrrr! Today be an imp’rtant fer scallywags n’ pirates… today be the International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Me question fer you is – be ya a Cap’n Jack pirate, a Barbosa pirate, or a Davy Jones?

Ya see, matey, arrrrr! Thar be diff’rent ways’a talkin’ like a bonafied pirate. Thar be awful pirates, like Tim Curry (as Long John) n’ Dustin Hoffman (as Hook). Avast! Me favorite pirate be Clueless Morgan (“Um… this is for you!”), who weren’t really a pirate at all.

Be off with ya, n’ start talkin’! Hoist the mainsals n’ scrub the poop deck! Set sail ‘to Davy Jones’ locker, also known as “The Big Blue Wet Thing.” Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me!
