International Talk Like A Pirate Day

Page by [kittykittykitty]

The selling point of the International Talk Like a Pirate Day is it's silliness: there is no point to it, other than for fun. September 19th every Year! (It's of course noted on annual-09-19)

If you just want a quick fix for the lingo, here are the five basic words that you cannot live without. Master them, and you can face Talk Like a Pirate Day with a smile on your face and a parrot on your shoulder, if that's your thing.

*Ahoy! - "Hello!"

*Avast! - Stop and give attention. It can be used in a sense of surprise, "Whoa! Get a load of that!" which today makes it more of a "Check it out" or "No way!" or "Get off!"

*Aye! - "Why yes, I agree most heartily with everything you just said or did."

*Aye aye! - "I'll get right on that sir, as soon as my break is over."

*Arrr! - This one is often confused with arrrgh, which is of course the sound you make when you sit on a belaying pin. "Arrr!" can mean, variously, "yes," "I agree," "I'm happy," "I'm enjoying this beer," "My team is going to win it all," "I saw that television show, it sucked!" and "That was a clever remark you or I just made." And those are just a few of the myriad possibilities of Arrr!

And a lecture:

2008-09-06 [Triola]: ... you can't just go around saying such things to me! :P

2008-09-06 [Linderel]: *giggle* It had to be said, though!
... you should totally draw that, by the way. If you can without fainting at the awesomeness :P

2008-09-06 [Triola]: I should! :D My tablet is miraculously working again, so I'm totally using it as much as possible now before it dies again <3

2008-09-06 [Linderel]: Yay for miraculous tablet-healings! \o/
So, that's your first mission from me, then. Pirate Draco. Go wild! :D

2008-09-06 [Triola]: Will do :3 Just have to finish my Sami girl, which might take a while, because the background is killing me x.X

2008-09-10 [Mordigen]: lol, I have nothing against Ninjas :) I just didn't get why last year so many people went all crazy on pirate day, as if ET was claiming anti-ninja descrimination or somthing just because there was a talk like a pirate day XD

2008-09-10 [Lothuriel]: Don't remember that one....but, I do remember a buncha babies crying because pirate talk scared them or something like that...

2008-09-19 [Yuriona]: *sings* God damn them all! I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold. We'd fire no guns, shed no tears! Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier, the last of Barrett's privateers.

2008-09-19 [Lothuriel]: Arrr, ye land luvers...

and whatnot.

2008-09-19 [Dark Side of the Moon]: A pirate walks into a bar and the bartender says, "Hey, I haven't seen you in a while. What happened, you look terrible!"
"What do you mean?" the pirate replies, "I'm fine."
The bartender says, "But what about that wooden leg? You didn't have that before."
"Well," says the pirate, "We were in a battle at sea and a cannon ball hit my leg but the surgeon fixed me up, and I'm fine, really."
"Yeah," says the bartender, "But what about that hook? Last time I saw you, you had both hands."
"Well," says the pirate, "We were in another battle and we boarded the enemy ship. I was in a sword fight and my hand was cut off but the surgeon fixed me up with this hook, and I feel great, really."
"Oh," says the bartender, "What about that eye patch? Last time you were in here you had both eyes."
"Well," says the pirate, "One day when we were at sea, some birds were flying over the ship. I looked up, and one of them shat in my eye."
"So?" replied the bartender, "what happened? You couldn't have lost an eye just from some bird shit!"
"Well," says the pirate, "I really wasn't used to the hook yet."

2008-09-19 [Lothuriel]: ROFLMBO!!!
