Talk like a Pirate Day will Soon be here:
I'm talking about September 19th, International Talk Like a Pirate Day in case you weren't aware. This proud and bold tradition of excellence was started by Cap'n Slappy and Ol' Chumbucket of the Dread Sloop Festering Boil, terror of the high seas.
Learn about it by googleing it and stop being a zero so you can start being a hero (well...anti-hero and smooth walk'n cool drink'n lady kill'n dude anyway) by joining the millions out there around the world (including some hulksters I have no doubt) who are already jumped up on the good ship "Bandwagon" (also known as "the bridge your friends would jump off of", and occasionally "sheeple" by talking like a Pirate.
Here are some PirRADiccal terms for you to help scurvy up your speech and let others know that you mean business:
Blunderbuss: not just an awesome word, but also an extremely awesome weapon (remember those old cartoons with the Puritanically attired Elmer hunting a "scwoowee" American Native "Wabbit"? Had a big horn looking end on the barrel and other wise looked like a fancy shotgun? that's a blunderbuss!
mizzenmast: a mast on the ship (the pole the sail hangs from) that is behind the mainsail or mains'l
Bung: the cork in the barrel that blocked the bunghole (stuff on a ship, i.e. pickled all sorts of stuff and rum or beer, would be stored in a barrel with a hole on one end called a bunghole which then would be blocked with the bung until some thirsty or hungry seadog would come along and unbung the bunghole and drink his fill). I really enjoyed that.
the cut o' yer jib: this refers to someones face, or to something the other person was doing or saying when used more generally. So if you thought someone had a trust worthy face you would say " I like the cut of your jib sir! To indicate that they seemed like a solid dude. Or if they made a suggestion you could agree by telling them that there jib was rubbing you quite the right way indeed. Only say it a little less creepy than that. Dude.
There are loads and loads more examples of Piratical Speachifying, search the seas on yer on for that thar treasure matey, that be the doin's of a far farrrrrrrr! less busy man then me. I can hear the tip o' the tot of the ping pong tiddly of the nuclear sub ( the best drink in the Pub !!!!) calling me moniker HAR HAR !!!!!
