Today be International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Arrgh, maties!
Confession: When I be wee, I be fascinated wi' Seafarin' heartys (along w' Spies an' Detectives). I think I read ever' book I could find about them. The most fascinatin' Pirate be Blackbeard (well, he be th' most famous). :D
My favorite fictional Sea Dogs be:
Patchy the Pirate
Red Rackham (an' Captain Haddock)
an' who can forget Jack Sparrow(or ortin' ta I say Captain Jack Sparrow) an' Barbossa?
(Who do ye find the most interestin' (or who's yer favorite)?) :D
Well, that's all th' talkin' like a sea dog fer today, shipmates. ('Tis tirin'.) Reckon if ye haven't do so yet, go aroun' an' tell someone Arrgh!!
(Oh aye, an' how can't be International Talk Like a Pirate Day if we dasn't play this tune at least once?)
Yo ho yo ho, a Pirate's life for me...
Happy International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Fair Winds!
