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

2008-09-06 [Linderel]: Oooh, Sami :o
I'll be looking forward to that as well :D

2008-09-06 [Triola]: It's looking good so far at least, I'll probably have it up in a couple of days :3

2008-09-06 [Linderel]: =^_^=
*goes watch The Truth About Cats & Dogs*

2008-09-08 [Mordigen]: aw, woot! talk like a pirate day is coming up again (excuse my random breakage of the already on going convo -- i just got the wiki invite so I'm behind....humor me ;P )

I hope this year doesn't go over like last many damn party poopers with poles up their asses last year, gah, and then the whole anti-pirate ninja boycott take over.....bah. shitbags spoil good fun.

anyhoo -- theres my interjection, carry on your convo as normal :)

2008-09-09 [Lothuriel]: AYE, wench!

2008-09-09 [Nite_Owl]: Hey I'm a ninja, and like any real ninja I have respect for all adversaries :D I'm all for me pirate brethren!

2008-09-09 [Lothuriel]: Pirate vs Ninja


2008-09-09 [Calico Tiger]: I still love Fred Perry's Pirate Ninja Leprechauns! Gold Digger ftw!

2008-09-09 [Lothuriel]: Hmm, have to go look that one up

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...


2008-09-10 [Mordigen]: like how everyone has to be utterly terrified of Santa before they start to worship him?

2008-09-10 [smakeupfx]: perhaps today should be..." talk rike ah ninja day"  :D

2008-09-10 [Lothuriel]: LOL....Exactly [Mordigen]!!!

2008-09-10 [Mordigen]: *snorts* then shouldn't it be "tark rike ah ninja day" ?
