I very much enjoyed the first time I learned about another pirate:

Mr. Pirate, umm, I think you have a steering wheel sticking out of the front of your pants...

Arrrr, don't I know it - it's drrrivin' me nuts!

Fuck this bullshit.

Am I the only one on here who understands that pirates were common criminals? Besides, that 'arrrrr' shit you love so much is just an 18th Century Scottish accent.

Whoever invented this pirate shite should rot in hell forever.

Yarrr! Who thinks it be time to keelhaul the above poster?

Seriously, I think we all know that pirates were criminals, and not-very-nice people. But we celebrate the criminal mob in films such as The Godfather, and perform tough-guy impressions from such ("I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse"); and cheer for illegal drug-consuming Jeff Spicoli in FastTimes at Ridgemont High. Why not have a little fun with pirate stereotypes?

Talk Like A Pirate Day went over big at the monthly meeting of the sci-fi modelling club I belong to. And after the business was concluded, we showed an episode of The Middleman. Coincidentally, it turned out to be the one with the Booty Chest, the "pirate-themed sports bar with the scantily-clad waitresses".
