Pirate Speak, Me Matey!!

I planned on trying to type this message using “pirate-speak” but it just doesn’t translate as nicely without the gruff pirate accent. At the end of the second sentence I looked back and realized that all I had typed was crap. So here we are. I’m typing English. It might not be very good English but it’s unequivocally English.
Why would I try to do something stupid like type a blog entry in English? Well did you know? According to Dave Barry today is “Talk Like A Pirate” Day.
So to get you in the spirit I present you with several pirate links: Learn about pirates from National Geographic Kids, Facts and Legends about Pirates or read the pirate magazine No Quarter Given. There is a lot more pirate info out there.
So go outside and shiver your timbers or make someone walk the plank just for the heck of it. Arrrrrrrr!

    Earlier today, I was going to make a post entirely in Pirateish (?) but then I realised that I didn’t know how to speak it. Arrrrr!!! (That’s about the only pirate expression I know *grins*)
