Arrrgh. Tis Talk Like A Pirate Day.

Ahoy mateys. Avast and hear what ol’ Capt’n Grey Beard has to speak upon you. Scuttlebutt says today be Talk Like A Pirate Day. Well tis true. http://www.talklikeapirateday.com/wordpress/.
Now I know ye all be pirates brave and true and will throw the King’s English over-board this morn’.
Tell that rotten pack o’ bilge rats you crew wit ye be taking over. And if it please that fancy britched over-seer of yourn, show ‘im where he may hide your hook.
Fare thee well. I be off to harrass the pack o’ thieves I sail wit’, make me way to the forecastle and set me spyglass upon the wench’s treasure chests.

Capt’n Grey Beard Tom bids ye fair sailing. Aarrrgh.

Here's some Pirate quotes for ya, loyal readers!

Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
- Henry Lewis Mencken, 1880 - 1956
The average man will bristle if you say his father was dishonest, but he will brag a little if he discovers that his great-grandfather was a pirate.
- Bern Williams
Even pirates, before they attack another ship, hoist a black flag.
- Bela Kiraly
There is nothing so desperately monotonous as the sea, and I no longer wonder at the cruelty of pirates.
- James Russell Lowell, 1819 - 1891
Now and then we had a hope that if we lived and were good, God would permit us to be pirates.
- Mark Twain, 1835 - 1910

Me thinks me thinks too much...

Avast me blood thirsty buckos! The demon Rum jus' hasn' tasted the same since they took the Lord Admiral Nelsons' body out o' the keg on Our return from Trafalgar! I swear by the pirates code this be the truth, or me name isn't Long John Blackbeard Patcheye Pegleg Hook! If'n ye don't beleive me ye can ask me Parrot.....Aaaarrrgh! What Say we run up the Skull & Bones pennant, Lay over to yon Spanish galleon, Lay a few broadsides against 'er timbers, Swing aboard from our tops on these 'ere lanyards, Hack and cut, Pillage and plunder, Debauch and gererally lay waste to the crew, Make their Cap'n Walk the Plank, Steal their booty of jewels and gold dubloons! What say ye me fine privateers! We can then sail off for a real adventure on the Boundin' Spanish Main and make port in the West Indies to visit the wenches that be waitin' there to serve us true sons of Cap'n Morgan. Then we be off to bury our treasure on an uncharted Isle and only I yer Captain know the compass points to the whereabouts of! I alone hold the map and X marks the spot where the treasures of our plunders be buried. Remeber, Dead Men Tells No Tales! What Say Ye!

Clear Sailin’ to Ye,
Capt’n Tom.
