Avast ye mateys!

It be Talk Like A Pirate Day today ye scallywags! Did ye forget? Aye, I be guessin' ye did. Yarr! Weigh anchor! Hoist the mizzen! Savvy, ye scallywag?! Or ye will be in Davey Jones' locker soon, ye Landlubber!

I dare ye t' answer that thar phone at least once today with a hearty "Yarrrrr" or "Shiver me timbers." Or maybe rather than waving t' yer scallywag neighbor or if yer walkin' the planks of the cubicle farm, throw a hand over ye bad eye and let out a hearty "Avast ye mateys!"

If yer pirate speak needs a little hoistin' of thar sails, take a look at this
pirate speak translator. Argh, where's me bottle o' rum?

And to get ye Talk Like A Pirate Day started, here's a bit o' humor to shiver ye timbers...

A pirate walks into a bar wearing
a paper towel as a hat. He sits
down at the bar and orders some
dirty rum.
The bartender asks, "Why
are you wearing a paper towel?"

"Arrr..." says the pirate. "I've got
a Bounty on me head!"

A Pirate Joke Mateys:

A seaman meets a pirate in a bar, and talk turns to their adventures on the sea. The seaman notes that the pirate has a peg-leg, a hook, and an eye patch.
The seaman asks "So, how did you end up with the peg-leg?"

The pirate replies "We were in a storm at sea, and I was swept overboard into a school of sharks. Just as my men were pulling me out, a shark bit my leg off."

"Wow!" said the seaman. "What about your hook"?

"Well...", replied the pirate, "We were boarding an enemy ship and were battling the other sailors with swords. One of the enemy cut my hand off."

"Incredible!" remarked the seaman. "How did you get the eyepatch"?

"A seagull dropping fell into my eye.", replied the pirate.

"You lost your eye to a seagull dropping?" the sailor asked incredulously.

"Well...", said the pirate, " was my first day with the hook."
