Scupper, Sink, and Burn Me.

Look you here now all ye land lubers. Now then, If I may make so bold, I'll be telling ya plain, the most auspicious, aye, and preposessen of days will soon be upon ye. I'd warrent a handsome wager that ye scurvy dogs all have a strong knowledge of the momentous nineteenth day of the month of September. Arrgh! International Talk Like a Pirate Day. This is not the time to keep your tongue behind your teeth. No standing off and on, set to work, and open your pretty maws. Man the braces and speak forth, or all the world will know that the blood in your veins is skim milk. What say you to this? Some might say one thing and some another, tis no matter, ere's luck and long life to all of us.

Good job Sylvia!! All your hard work was worth it! You have a new hilarious post.

I'm not even going to try. Just tie me up to a post and I'll cry for my Peter Pan.

You were clearly a pirate in some past life; your pirate vocab shines like newly polished treasure.

Joel said...

aye!!! this pirate and his brothers of the sword will take upon ourselves this noble and great voyage that was given unto us by none other than Davie Jones himself. bye speaking our true tongue that we might know who be true to the pirate code and who be a scurvy knave.

The reason I have such lovely pirate speak, is that I bought The Pirate Primer in preparation for the momentous day.

Salutations ma soeur de pirate, je manque de otre talent ans le langage du pirate!

Arrgh matey, my pirate language translator has failed me. I suppose I will have to walk the plank as there is no time left to buy the Pirate Primer by 19 September and so that I may speak in the pirate tongue.

Shiver me timbers, I'm just a low life land lubber.
