Saturday, September 19th, 2009

Aye, me parrot agrees.

Aye, except that tis’ International (that’s right – International. So don’t go getting all snooty on me non-Americans. You’re in this as deep as I am.) Talk Like a Pirate Day, so I’m puttin’ e’erythin’ through the pirate speak translator. A pence for an old man o’de sea?

scott_the_pirateAhoy, which is kind o’ an annoyin’ extra step, if you mightily must know. Gar, Where can I find a bottle o’rum?

Arrr, do the Somali pirates talk like this? Aye, I didn’t think so. Ye’ll ne’er get me buried booty!

(They called it booty?)

Aye, me am growin’ weary o’ this pirate nonsense. A pence for an old man o’de sea?

Ahoy, and, in slightly annoyed conclusion, I’m goin’ t’ unleash a Tourette’s-like torrent o’ piratish sayin’s. Gar, Where can I find a bottle o’rum?

Walk the plank!

Shiver me timbers!

Drink up, me hearties!

Well, blow me down!

Gar, you’re nothing but a land lubber!

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

Any string of words utilizing ‘grog’ or ‘bilge rat’!

Buy a beer for an old lass o’de sea?

Avast, I’ve crushed seventeen men’s skulls between me thighs!

(That last one may or may not be true. You’ll have to wait until I’m arrested, and the contents of my yard excavated before I’ll confirm or deny.)

Tomorrow?

Why, it’s International Blog Like You’re Baby Talking Your Giant Dog Day, of course!

Here’s a sample: Whaddaya doin’ Dohey wohey wohey? Is yous sweepin’ by the front door? Yes? Yous is sweepin’? Who’s a good boy!? Who’s a good boy!? I wuvs you, Donut!!! I wuvs you!

(And, yes, you can go ahead and throw up a little in your mouth now, if so inclined.)
