Ahoy, Matey!

Today is international Talk Like a Pirate day.

Avast, ye lubbers.



  1. Yar…Avast ye matees… shiver me timbers. I first came across thar pirate day when looking up cheats for Sid Meier’s Pirates! re-release. Apparently, if played today, all the NPCs will talk like a pirate (yar, even those that aren’t pirates, like the amply well-endowed governor’s daughters, yar).

    So celebrate w/ some good ‘ol fashioned* Pirates! today!

    *old meaning came out in 1987, fashioned meaning… well, its still one of the best games ever made.

  2. Pour, oh, pour the pirate sherry;
    Fill, O fill the pirate glass;
    And, to make us more than merry,
    Let the pirate bumper pass.

    Um… yarrr….

  3. Out of respect for my Ninja bretheren, I’m afraid I cannot acknowledge pirate day.

  4. Fine, I’m still mad I totally spaced on that one. I guess I have to set my computer’s clock back in time to celebrate it on my own.
