Avast, ye loyal readers! Tomorrow, we’ll be celebrating International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Put on yer eyepatches, dust off that parrot (‘es not dead, ‘es just resting!), strap on that peg leg, and pillage to your heart’s content. Ye’ll be keelhauled if ye don’t raise a tot’o’rum at 5:30 pm. Raise yer flagons, and let loose yer inner “Arrrr!”
Some suggestions for working pirate-speak into your day:
When someone is in your way: Outta me way, ye scurvy swab!
When you get something in on a short deadline: Shiver me timbers!
When someone displeases you: Get out of me sight, afore I send yeh to Davy Jones’ locker!
When drinking your coffee: Arr! That be the nectar o’ Neptune!
When turning down a bullshit assignment: I’d rather walk the gangplank!
When someone to be avoided heads your way: Avast! Fend off, thar!
If you really want to make a day of it, you could serve spaghetti & meatballs with your rum, in solidarity with yer disappearin’ pirate brethren.
