More for International Talk Like a Pirate Day

Stumbled upon at this site, a compendium of "Pirate Laws."

Of course, this makes it look like I'm encouraging this "International Talk Like a Pirate Day." Arrrrrrrgggghhhhh. I do not wish to convey any such impression.

A couple of the rules were pretty good, anyway. No. 7, for instance:

A pirate shall never wear lipstick, nail
polish, or capri pants. Actually,
that kinda goes without saying.

Well, actually, someone should have said something to Johnny Depp.

Or no. 48:

Hooks are the only acceptable hand substitute.
However, they may not have secondary attachments
such as screwdrivers, bottle openers, corkscrews,
or nail files. These are Pirates we're talking
about, not Inspector Gadget.

And no. 20 was just painful:

No pirate shall attend a movie with
less than an Arrrr rating.

But if this pirate-talking is your thing, have at it mateys! But just for today, please.

(Proving once again there are no depths to which I will not sink, uh, no lengths to which I will not go in order to better serve my readers. Arrrrggggghhhh.)

I've just learned this was Pirate Day from visiting a few blogs. It's a bit late for me to jump into the fray.

I will however go drool over an Orlando Bloom photo. (He was in the movies with Depp.)

When we were on a cruise last year with P and O, the staff actually go on pirate watch around the African coast where there have been attacks on ships. I got into the spirit of things and joined them, with their sonar equipment ready to flush out anyone daring enough to threaten our ship. I feel great to be able to say that I have been on pirate watch.

Actually, capris on a man are called "manpris".

But, pirate or not, they're still a no-no.

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day!

I posted about this today as well! I love the fact that it has a whole excuse to say AVAST and AHOY and not be looked at as funny as usual...

What? It was International Talk Like a Pirate Day? Oh hell, I was doing it wrong all day - I thought it was International Talk Like a Parrot Day!

I didn't know about Pirate Day until visiting your blog. Should have come here earlier because I think my son is a Pirate in the making!
