Talk Like a Pirate Day / Day 19 of 100 blogs in 100 days

Shiver me timbers! A hat tip t' lovely Alison at Astraware for tellin' me about Talk Like a Pirate Day! Bein' Chinese, I'm not culturally sensitive t' these thin's, but since t' day be almost gone, thar be Dress Like a Pirate Day comin' up in October. It's called Halloween.

Here a few choice phrases -

  • Avast Ye Scurvy Scum
  • Ahoy Matey
  • Aye, aye, captain
  • Dead men tell no tales
  • Grab thee a wench
  • Li'ly livered land lubbers
  • Polly wanna cracker?
  • Shiver me timbers
  • Swab the deck
  • Yo ho, yo ho
  • Arr, Mateys!!

Me favorite pirate / cowlad be Yosemite Sam -
