Avast ye scruvy webdogs!

Ahoy and avast ye scurvy dogs. It's International Talk Like A Pirate Day.

A fine time to swagger about and belt back a mug o' grog whenever the mood strikes. Let all you emails be typed in piratey goodness. If you lack the appropriate keyboard to type them out you can improve any standard email with a simple pass through the English to Pirate translator. It'll even do entire webpages for you! If you need to cobble something together yourself in a hurry then simple focus on the 5 key words to get a firm foothold on talking like a pirate.

aye aye

Iff'n ye've got some time t' burn then hauly yer scurvy backside to the official Youtube channel for Cap'n Slappy and the gang responsible for this mayhem. Iff'n yer really lookin' t' one yer skills and swagger about like a true buccaneer then it's a copy o' Pirattitude ye be needin'!

What bad could come of pirates? How about this?

A pirate walks into the bar with a ships wheel attached to the front o' his trousers. The bartender asks, "What the hell is that ships wheel for?" The pirate says, "Yarrrrrr! I don't know, but it's drivin' me nuts!"

Pretty rough but instead I offer an antidote.

A pirate and his parrot, were adrift in a lifeboat following a dramatic escape from a valiant battle. While rummaging through the boat's provisions, the pirate stumbled across an old lamp. Secretly hoping that a Genie would appear, he rubbed the lamp vigorously. To the amazement of the castaways, a Genie came forth. This particular Genie, however, stated that he could only deliver one wish, not the standard three. Without giving any thought to the matter the pirate blurted out, "Yarr! It would be grand if the vast ocean were made out o' rum!" The Genie clapped his hands with a deafening crash, and immediately the entire sea turned into the finest rum ever sampled by mortals. Simultaneously, the Genie vanished. Only the gentle lapping of rum on the hull broke the stillness as the two considered their circumstances.

The parrot looked disgustedly at the pirate and after a tension-filled moment spoke: "Now yee've done it!! Now we're goin t' have to pee in the boat!"

And a little ditty to be sendin' ye on yer way.

Avast matey! Whar be th' Skull & Skupper? I be needin' t' swill a pint or two o' grog.
