talk like a pirate day is nearing ( sept 19th)
I would type this out in pirate speak, but it's not here yet. but get ready for it.

gar don't wait until it's too late to brush up. do your homework, make it work.

Hobbs 09-15-2005 09:47 AM

Everytime I try to talk like a pirate, I wind up sounded like Mr. Crabs on Spongebob. Arrrr.

One time, we all went to a small town resturant in Williams and for some bazzar reason, all of us felt compelled to give our order talking like a pirate. Even got the waiter to give out an "arrrr." Had the table rolling.

dar512 09-15-2005 10:35 AM

Talk like a pirate day seems to have really gathered momentum this year. I've seen it pop up all over the place.

By the way, I found out about it from Jimmy Johnson at the Arlo and Janis site.

wolf 09-15-2005 10:50 AM

I think that the Flying Spaghetti Monster has caused the resurgence in pirate interest.

Happy Monkey 09-15-2005 11:48 AM

Anything we can do to combat global warming...

Iggy 09-15-2005 01:31 PM

When someone told me about this a couple years ago I didn't believe them... is this silly in a fun way or is it just me?

Arrrr! (Just practicing...)

Elspode 09-16-2005 12:37 PM my house, we talk like pirates all the time. There's a day for it now?

Guess I'll have to abstain in order to make it special.

Hobbs 09-16-2005 01:23 PM

Yep. You know what this means? You can stop being ashamed of what you do behind closed doors. We, as society, recognize you. Come out of the closet and embrace your priateness.

Bullitt 09-16-2005 02:24 PM

Even the catholics get into talk like a pirate day!!

Elspode 09-16-2005 02:43 PM

We have a girl in our coven who is completely enthralled with Talk Like a Pirate Day. She's been on pins and needles since July. I think we've sort of taken the gleam off of it by buying her all the little pirate baubles we find when we come across them in the various two-bit stores.

Tonchi 09-16-2005 04:49 PM

Instead of talking like a pirate, can we just dress like one instead? And if so, do the girls have to go topless? :unsure:

BigV 09-16-2005 05:23 PM

Be my guest, but, please, remember to select someone else as the designated photographer. Huzzah!

be-bop 09-16-2005 06:18 PM

Talk like a Pirate day, what a stupid idea Arrr!! ooops Its catchy :D

Tonchi 09-16-2005 09:09 PM

I suppose a Scottish pirate would say "Arrrr, mon!"? :biggrin:

lumberjim 09-16-2005 09:32 PM

sounds more like a Jamaican Pirate......mon

Tonchi 09-17-2005 12:02 AM

"Arrrr, laddie"?

lumberjim 09-19-2005 10:21 AM


BigV 09-19-2005 10:31 AM

Ahoy!! Type like a Py-rait! YAR!!

Now I have to edit all me posts of the marnin'...rrrrrrrrgh

wolf 09-19-2005 10:32 AM

Shiver me timbers.



Have I fulfilled the requirement? Am I done yet?

Hobbs 09-19-2005 10:42 AM

Arrgg! This is the worst morin' i've ever weathered.

Avast and prepared to be boarded!

BigV 09-19-2005 10:44 AM

ALL DAY ye rotting slacker! Heave, now! Raar!

Iggy 09-19-2005 04:35 PM

Prepare to have yer booty plundered!!

seakdivers 09-19-2005 09:02 PM

I've got a pic of me dressed as a pirate - I gotta dig it up.

ermm... yo ho ho

wolf 09-20-2005 02:00 AM

Over already. So sad. But something to look forward to next year!

Elspode 09-20-2005 03:01 PM

After all of the hubbub, Sara said it was November 19. Now I'm just confused. And you know what a confused pirate says, don't you?

"Aaaarrrgggghhhh!!! Bite me crank, matey!!"

xoxoxoBruce 09-20-2005 05:11 PM

Sara's wrong, it be September 19th. ;)

dar512 09-20-2005 07:59 PM

Shiver me timbers, lad. Your wench must be deep in her cups. These rum runners'll tell you true.

BigV 09-18-2006 06:41 PM

In the marnin' ye'll be speakin' th' right words, or walkin' th' plank.

Ye ha' bin warned. Yar!

lumberjim 09-18-2006 07:21 PM

i'm so totally doing this live tomorrow. i read moby dick in preparation.

arrrr, these be the warranties, pikey. which will ya be buyin' today? none, says ye? well, this be my knife, then. care to reconsider? arrr....

Elspode 09-18-2006 08:34 PM

Shiver me timbers! Aaargghhh! Bite me crank, matey!

Just warmin' up...

footfootfoot 09-18-2006 09:10 PM

Arrrr! Some o ye pirates be talkin in code don't ya know? Messages be hidden deep in the first word of every scurvy line that crosses their foul lips. Are ye ready to be speaking like a code talking pirate then? Hidden treasure is the mark of a true pirate!

Griff 09-19-2006 04:03 PM

Bite down on the leather son. Me thinks it'll be a long night. F3 has lain a challenge. You shouldn't be backing down from. Scurvey is the reward for the laggard. Dog you'll be ifn you don't have a go. :)

footfootfoot 09-19-2006 05:42 PM

Arrrg! Matey, your response comes awful quick ya know. I've been a wonderin' jest who'll be man enough to take the bait. Lost at sea these many years I've seen many a foul creature walk the plank. My word alone isn't enough, you'll need to see for yourself how bad the splinters are. Tweezers are no use to ya when you're down in davy jones locker.


BigV 09-19-2006 06:43 PM

But it's peaceful quiet on th' bottom o' th' sea. Some splashin and thrashin at the start, sure. Messages soon reach yer brain that yer lungs, yer poor lungs, crushed an burnin, need relief! Arrrrrgh! Hidden from view beneath the waves, already fading from mem'ry. In rushes th' water when ye feel ye must finally burst! Plain sleep enfolds ye as settle into th arms o' Death. Sight is the last to go, but it feels like dreamin.

BigV 09-19-2006 06:53 PM

Check y'self, matey. The rules onboard ar strict an th penalties harsh. Top Dog is Under Toad. Shelfish he is in guardin th safety o th good ship "cellar". In case ye didn't know who's boat yer sailin on. The Captain. Medicine may soothe yer pains, and ye know where to look for it. Cabinet, y' addlepated bilge monkey, Liquor Cabinet!

I mean, Ok.

Accepting the gift honors the giver.

pssst. How long do I have to wear this hideous thing?

wolf 09-20-2006 10:59 AM

One week.

I wanted to report that I did, indeed, talk like a pirate at work yesterday.

After a lengthy explanation, they let me out.

Hoof Hearted 09-20-2006 12:07 PM

I anwered the phone "Ahoy, Matey!" all day. Everyone thought I was nutz but I had a blast. Didn't get anyone to walk the plank, though...

footfootfoot 09-20-2006 06:04 PM

Yes I'm the pirate, pilot
of this ship if I get with the ultraviolet dream
Hide from the red light beam
Now do you believe in the unseen?

Flint 09-20-2006 06:09 PM

Hast thou sand in thy vagina?

Sorry, lumberjim, a "talk like a pirate day" was all I could scrape together on such short notice. So . . . do you like me yet?

Cloud 09-18-2007 08:44 PM

I'm gonna call my boss Captain and say, "Aye, aye, sir" all day, and when he asks, I'm gonna chide him for being out of touch with popular culture.


I couldn't find a pirate smiley, but at least these guys have eye patches.

Cloud 09-18-2007 08:52 PM
