I am so excited! I read about this once in a Dave Barry column.

I've been wanting to call my roommate scurvy dogs for months!
 
Posted by saxon75 (Member # 4589) on :
 
It's only been 6 months since Post Like A Pirate Day, though. Or would it be OK to have two in one year?
 
Posted by Dread Pirate_Smith (Member # 4780) on :
 
Arrrgg!!! Is it September already??
 
Posted by Steerpike (Member # 5179) on :
 
I read it in Dave Barry, too.
It's nice to see that pirates like myself are finally getting a little recognition.
 
Posted by Dread Pirate_Smith (Member # 4780) on :
 
Its a funny coincidence that after all these years, we low life men are still after some booty.

Many pirates were in reallity French and Spanish. This means, to truly talk like a pirate, I have to learn an entire new language.

Dan, according to Google "arrrr, I be a scurvy pirate!" translates to:

l'arrrr, je soit un pirate du scorbut! - French
¡el arrrr, yo sea pirata del escorbuto! - Spanish

Arrr...sorry matey.

[ROFL] This just reminded me of a funny tidbit from my childhood!!!

You know how, in some cities, near X-mas, Santa rides around through the neighborhoods on a firetruck? One year I was out helping my parents put lights on the house when a firetruck came through with a very drunk Santa. (It was like, 10 at night.) He's swaying around and shouting "Yo, ho, ho, Merry Christmas!"
 
Posted by Sarcasticpirette (Member # 5615) on :
 
I just saw Pirates of the Carribean for the first time. It was awesome. I loved how J. Depp pulled off the perpetually drunk Captain Jack Sparrow. I loved the use of the word "savvy" and am trying to incorporate it into my daily speech. A friend and I had a spat as to whether it means "y'know" or "do you understand?", but the more I think about it, the real equivilent is the word "Comprende?". "Aarg, you're going to do what I tell you to do, savvy?"

things to dream of at 1:30 at night.

Edit to say it's S-A-V-V-Y, cuz it looks like a w to me.

i've commandeered a ship, my boys,
i'm setting off to sea
across these dry and grassy lands there was never
love for me.
so now the sea she'll hold me, she'll rock me
into sleep
so satisfied she'll make me, no other love i'll
keep.
i'll search for gold and high adventure
perhaps some exotic land
alas i'll seek no longer
for a boy to hold my hand.
to the wind i'll give my secrets
to the stars my flirty looks
i've long since reckonded princes
only live in storybooks.
please don't presume to stop me,
do not think me vile,
for this pirate lass's vessel
is lined with light green tile.
i remember mary read
and envy her good luck,
for in place of bonny anne,
my first mate is...
a duck.

your swarthy bathtime booty,
sara

I thought it meant "y'know" but was just used to mean "understand?" It sounds to me like a perversion of the Spanish sabe - B's and V's sound pretty much the same in Spanish.

Regardless of what it means, I love it when Johnny Depp says it. [Big Grin]

Pirate joke:

A pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel attached to his leg. Ever observant, one of the bar's other patrons calls out, "hey, Pirate! Why do you have a steering wheel attached to your leg?"

The pirate answers, "ARRR! It's driving me nuts!"

Ye said a mouthful, EG.

Sarky me lass, savvy comes from
savvy
verb 1. to know; understand. --noun 2. understanding; intelligence; commonsense. [18th century, from pidgin English, from Spanish sabe usted you know]

Arrr! You were right! I was sure 'twas from the French savoir. But all the online slang dogs agree with ye.
*shakes fist* You win this round, me beauty.

Avadaru and I have arranged for an announcement to be made at our school about talk like a pirate day...and I told my friend Laura about it, and she talked one of the late night 104.1 DJs into saying something too.

So I feel I've done my bit.

I'm sitting here playing operator, writing "international talk like a pirate day" on the top of all the fliers with pirate jargon that I've printed out to distribute at work and at school. And I get to grab people as they come into the building and tell them about TLAP Day. Hope no one minds a student worker operator who tells people to talk like a pirate.....

operators really have lots of free time. I wanna be an operater when I grow up

I be thinkin' that it mightn be a suitable gesture to follow the lead of Pirate Dave Barry - who might be celebrating "Talk Like a Pirate to Telemarketers Day."

Or, as he wrote: "scurvy telemarrrketers"

Tonight, if we get one of those calls...

TMKTR: Is __ at home?

Me: No one 'ere by that name. Who be callin?

TMKTR: Well, would you be interested...

Me: Lissen, laddie, I'm sittin 'ere with a bunch of me mates, a few kegs, and some muskets. We're looking for pillage and plunder. And we've got caller id - and a reverse telephone directory. I suggest you abandon ship before the boarding party arrives.

TMKTR: "click"

Posted by Carrie (Member # 394) on :
 
Well, I'll tell ye scabberous dogs what I been up to today.

Firstly, I got up and poured meself a fine cup o' grog. This lasted quite a while and made the next point quite good.

Then I went to class. Aye, class, mates. I found meself in Greek afore I knew what the bloody hell was goin' on, and I gave a rather inspired performance, if I do say so meself. I had an Astronomy quiz (and the grog was still flowin') and then Ancient Egypt (where the facilities were a-callin', but made it out in time).

I then found meself with a quick break wherein I finally ate something (a couple Wheat Thins, nothin' too big lest I start spoutin'), got meself another mug o' grog, and did some work. I had another class, Italian, which was by far the best 50 minutes o' me life. Every single thing that was said was absolutely hilarious, but fer the life o' me, I cannot remember what the hell happened. [Smile]

I then came back home, had a fourth cup o' grog (I get the number by countin' cans, mates), and passed out fer a while. And then I be here.

Ye may be askin' yerselves, be this the end o' the day fer this poor wench? NO! Firstly, I be not a "poor wench," just a sometimes-misguided one. Second, and more important, I got plenty o' lootin' and plunderin' to be doin' yet tonight. I got a goin' away party fer one o' me best friends. She be goin' to England with them scurvy dogs to "study" or so she claims. I be knowin' better, though - she be goin' to plunder her weasly black guts out. And I be sad and jealous, all in one.

So what'll I do? I'll get meself another mug o' grog and drink meself senseless. Or possibly drink meself some sense [Smile]

Avast! Ye'd better be talkin' some right pirate talk, else I'll be comin' after ye!

Yers in lots o' grog,

Bloody Mary Flint
