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.

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.

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

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...)

Strange...at 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.

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.

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.

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

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