Yarrr!!! It be International Talk Like a Pirate Day 2011!!!. This be the day that all them thar landlubbers get to splice their mainbraces and embrace their inner Blackbeard. Tis a pity it only comes once a year.
But wait, look at this news report – the Pirate Party won 8.5% of the vote in Berlin’s local elections yesterday. Suddenly pirates are becoming politically mainstream, even if they don’t have parrots or a hook fetish. It’s all Johnny Depp’s fault.
Anyway, I leave you with my favourite pirate joke:
Q: How much does it cost a pirate to get his ear pierced?
A: A buccaneer!
Thank you. Now go talk like a pirate!
