Bigg and Oz have been waiting for this day for quite some time. Yes, it’s the international Talk Like a Pirate Day. And in all actuality, it’s Bigg whose been the most excited about it. He didn’t disappoint this morning.
What’s really fun, is that this is an actual day. Two guys playing racquetball decided to ham it up in the court and started screaming insults at each other in ‘pirate speak.’ The story is pretty funny.
Pirates, and pirating in general, have taken a hit in the recent past due to Somali pirates. So I’m extra thankful, on this day of pirate celebration, for Johnny Depp and his portrayal of Capt’n Jack so we can feel warm and fuzzy about the fun of real pirates.
Don’t know how to speak Pirate? Don’t be a rum fellow, start here…
Anyways, my favorite Pirate of late is Blackbeard. You take Swearengen from Deadwood and have him talk Pirate? Golden!
We’ll celebrate the day by annoying those around us, cooking up some pirate grub tonight, and what else? Drink Rum!!!!!
“Damnation seize my soul if I give you quarters, or take any from you.” Blackbeard
