Yarrr, 'tis International Talk Like a Pirate Day!


Ye scurvy, mutinous dogs, hope ye’ll be properly marking the day!

My friends and I used to have parrties to marrk that day. Good times.

I’m in Spain doing the Camino de Santiago and my wife just emailed me to remind me of this momentus day.

So, “Arrrrrrgh (gotta roll them rs in Spain) senor.”

What is a pirate’s favorite letter?


Shiver me timbers, ye scurvy dogs, I missed it, arr. That would be worse than the Black Spot, arr.

I be having eye surgery on Friday, arr, so I will have the appropriate patch on me eye then, by the powers, arr. Too bad about the timing, arr.

Shodan, arr

You’d think it’d be R, but tis the C they love.

Why’d the pirate drive off the road?

Because it was scurvy!

What do pirates love to wear when they golf?



Why did the corn salesman give up his job for a life of piracy?
He only made a good buccaneer.

All your booty is mine!

Hey, give an old dirty fart a dream…

Why couldn’t the pirate kid see the exciting new movie?

Because it was rated Arrrrrrrrr!

What be a poirate’s least fav’rite letter?

<spit> Tea?

I can’t resist:

Arrrgh, ya shud uv!

*“As for me, I am tormented with an everlasting itch for things remote. I love to sail forbidden seas, and land on barbarous coasts.” *


A pirate walks into a bar and orders a bottle of rum. The bartender notices the pirate has a large ship’s steering wheel extending out the fly of his trousers and points it out. The pirate replies, “Arrrrrr! I know, and it be drivin’ me nuts, too.”

I’m married to the sea, plus I have a thing on the side with two of the Great Lakes. I won’t say which, but it’s Erie how Superior they are.

Noooo! It be the sea!

Yar, me toime is up!
