Default September 19

Today is international speak like a pirate day. And I think we should celebrate by making blood curdling yells throughout the day and finish by polishing off a bottle of rum and going to sleep under a tree in the garden

Alas, no rum........but on a Friday night in Oz, I am making particularly light work of this bottle of whisky in front of me.

Does that count?

Arrrggghhh!!!

Arr-harr! Avast there, me hearties, and splice my mainbrace!

If I do blood-curdling yells, I'll frighten the cats. The cats o'one tail, not nine.

I warned my students about this the other day. I fear I would disappoint them if I didn't throw in a few "avast ya scurvy dog!" and "Hoist the mainsail!" snarls during lecture today.

Now what we need to do is make the 20th "Dress like a pirate day". Eye patches and parrots for everyone!!

Top Ten Pickup lines for use on International Talk Like a Pirate Day

(We came up with these in an effort to interest The Other Dave (Letterman) in TLAPD. His staff liked 'em, but alas, his show was"dark" the week of Sept. 19.)

10 . Avast, me proud beauty! Wanna know why my Roger is so Jolly?

9. Have ya ever met a man with a real yardarm?

8. Come on up and see me urchins.

7. Yes, that is a hornpipe in my pocket and I am happy to see you.

6. I'd love to drop anchor in your lagoon.

5. Pardon me, but would ya mind if I fired me cannon through your porthole?

4. How'd you like to scrape the barnacles off of me rudder?

3. Ya know, darliní, Iím 97 percent chum free.

2. Well blow me down?

And the number one pickup line for use on International Talk Like a Pirate Day is Ö

1. Prepare to be boarded.

Bonus pickup lines (when the ones above don't work, as they often won't)

They donít call me Long John because my head is so big.

Youíre drinking a Salty Dog? Howíd you like to try the real thing?

Wanna shiver me timbers?

Iíve sailed the seven seas, and youíre the sleekest schooner Iíve ever sighted.

Brwaack! Polly want a cracker? Ö Oh, wait. Thatís for Talk Like a PARROT Day.

Thatís the finest pirate booty Iíve ever laid eyes on.

Let's get together and haul some keel.

Thatís some treasure chest youíve got there.

Top Ten Pickup Lines for the Lady Pirates

By popular demand ...

10. What are YOU doing here?

9. Is that a belayin' pin in yer britches, or are ye ... (this one is never completed)

8. Come show me how ye bury yer treasure, lad!

7. So, tell me, why do they call ye, "Cap'n Feathersword?"

6. That's quite a cutlass ye got thar, what ye need is a good scabbard!

5. Aye, I guarantee ye, I've had a twenty percent decrease in me "lice ratio!"

4. I've crushed seventeen men's skulls between me thighs!

3. C'mon, lad, shiver me timbers!

Guy walks into a pub. He's got a wooden peg leg, a hook instead of a left hand, a patch over his right eye and a small ship's wheel protruding from the fly of his jeans.

One patron thinks he must be a pirate and after a shot of rum, works up the courage to confront the "pirate."

"I can't help noticing, but are you a real pirate?"

"Aye, Matey, that I am."

The patron asks how he lost his leg, hand and eye, and the pirate regales him with swashbuckling tales from the high seas.

After another shot of rum, the patron asks, "If you don't mind my asking, did you know there's a small ships wheel sticking out of your fly?

"Aaarrrghh, Matey, I do. It's driving me nuts."
