International Talk Like a Pirate Day - 09/19/11 09:46 AM

Aye. mateys, the calendar hath done turned full circle again.

Today, answer all your phone calls and greet your friends not with "Hello," but with "Ahoy, matey!"

A tip of the ol' pirate hat to tomtuttle. As Blackbeard himself said, "Damn ye, yellow-bellied sapsuckers, he's a better man than all of ye milksops put together."

I have a right funny joke for ye scurvy dogs.

So, a pirate walks into a bar with a paper towel on his head. He sits down at the bar and orders some dirty rum.

The bartender asks, "Why be ye' wearin' a bleedin' paper towel on 'yer head?"


"Arrrrr..." says the pirate. "I've got a bounty on me head!"

Pirate to man with two women stranded in row boat:

"Ay, matey, are them your oars?"

"No, they're me sisters!"

Aye be related to one of dem dar pirates... Lookin' back in me family tree...

Sir Francis Drake (1540-1596) was a sailor, politician, globe-circumnavigator, and aye, a privateer with his own Letter of Marque from Queen Elizabeth I. So reviled was he by the Spanish—whom he routinely stripped o’ ships, gold, spices and booty—King Phillip II allegedly put a 20,000 ducat (£4 million) bounty on his head. Drake made two successful voyages to the West Indies for tradin’. Nearly 100 years later, a band o’ pirates called the buccaneers became active across the West Indies.

My Grandfather helped unload the rumrunners, including this famous vessel, back when they came into my hometown. Charged a tithe (of the liquid kind) too, to let them land. Does that count?

My mother was a hamster, and my father smelt of elderberries.
