Tel-He said he was never a pirate! "Antonio never yet was thief nor pirate, though I confess, on base and ground enough Orsino's enemy"

You mean he was really a pirate??? He didn't seem very....piratical. I always figured military type thing, or privateer. Which i guess is a pirate...

Pirates of the Carribean puts a new twist on "Talk like a Pirate day." Somehow "Bob's your Uncle, Fanny's your Aunt" or "I'm disinclined to acquiesce to your request" doesn't quite have the same ring as: "Arrgh, Jim boy!"

Well.... he CLAIMS that he's no pirate.. but he sank the flagship "Phoenix" and several other ships of the fleet of Ilira... plus he killed Orsino's nephew (or was is cousin?). One man's sea-hero is another's corsair. [Smile]

You all must learn to sing "Barrett's Privateer" for the occassion.

For starters, Here is the chorus

quote:
God d***n them all!
I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold
We'd fire no guns-shed no tears
Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier
The last of Barrett's Privateers.

That turn of phrase comes up twice that I can remember in the movie. What am I forgetting?

One:

Jack Sparrow: Everyone stay calm, we are taking over the ship.
Will Turner: AYE! AVAST!
Crew: <laughs>
Gillette: This ship cannot be crewed by two men. You'll never make it out of the bay.
Jack: Son, you're forgetting one thing. <cocks gun> I'm Captain Jack Sparrow, savvy?

Two:

Barbossa: How the blazes did you get off that island?
Jack Sparrow: When you marooned me on that godforsaken spit of land, you forgot one very important thing, mate. I'm Captain Jack Sparrow.
Barbossa: Well, I won't be makin' that mistake again.

The fact that i watch that movie just about 7 times a day EVERY day... and i don't know the names or the conversations by heart and yet.. YOU do... scares me.
I'm talking about the second one. I just didn't remember how the conversation went. I thought it was with the officers. Oh well. What's done is done is done.
Nevertheless.
17 days.

The original speech is from when he has just saved Elizabeth and Lorrington (Lawrington?) decides to arrest him for piracy. That was his response.

Question of the Day: How do YOU celebrate Talk Like A Pirate Day?

For our family, it is a time of sharing and fellowship. We get out the old treasure chest and count through our pieces of eight. We drink Rum (my 5 year old only sips from her bottle o' rum) and if time permits, o'ertake the neighbor's house and raise the Jolly Roger over their home, declaring to all the world we are not to be messed with.

Or, more realistically I will probably just wear my pirate hook on one hand at work during the day and throw an "arrr" into conversation and opportune moments.

Last year I kind of dressed up (I half-heartedly tried for the disgusting hair/bandanna thing Jack Sparrow had going - but who really wants their hair to look like that?). I also (hehe) brought rum and coke to all my classes. Not even kidding. I had four classes that day - Greek, Astronomy lecture, Civilization of Ancient Egypt, and Italian - so between classes I'd run back to my room and refill. Class started at 9:55am. I was feeling the effects, shall I say, by 10:30am. It was a very good TLAP day.

This year, I think I'll take the suggestion on the website and celebrate TLAP Weekend, even though the university's putting on a Troy symposion. Hmm... no, bringing rum and coke to lectures would be massively disrespectful. Oh well.

What the devil? I've never heard of this. Actually, I'm not interested in talking like a pirate so much as I am interested in the fact that apparently anyone can just make up a holiday and get people all over the world to celebrate it.

With that in mind, I hope you're all ready, because Send Verily Money Day is just around the corner. [Big Grin]

You can't forget the dread pirate Roberts (in this scene he is "Man in Black":

====
[Fencing]
Inigo Montoya : You are wonderful.
Man in Black : Thank you; I've worked hard to become so.
Inigo Montoya : I admit it, you are better than I am.
Man in Black : Then why are you smiling?
Inigo Montoya : Because I know something you don't know.
Man in Black : And what is that?
Inigo Montoya : I... am not left-handed.
[Moves his sword to his right hand and gains an advantage]
Man in Black : You are amazing.
Inigo Montoya : I ought to be, after 20 years.
Man in Black : Oh, there's something I ought to tell you.
Inigo Montoya : Tell me.
Man in Black : I'm not left-handed either.
[Moves his sword to his right hand and regains his advantage]

--
and

Buttercup : You're the Dread Pirate Roberts, admit it.
Westley : With pride. What can I do for you?
Buttercup : You can die slowly, cut into a thousand pieces.
Westley : Tsk, tsk. That's hardly complementary Highness. Why loose your venom on me?
Buttercup : You killed my love.
Westley : It's possible. I kill a lot of people

Westley: This is not as easy as it looks, so if you wouldn't mind waiting...
Inigo: I hate waiting.

--

Inigo: I give you my word as a Spaniard!
Westley: No good, I've known too many Spaniards.

--

Inigo: Do you happen to have six fingers on your right hand?
Westley: Do you always begin conversations this way?
