An' if'n ye be from the colonies, ye need tae go t' http://www.talklikeapirate.com/



Thank goodness that's over! I managed two solid lessons of the full-blown banter before my throat waved the white flag.

Over ?

ninteenth o' September

Even over there it is still the 19th (at least for 6 or 7 hours ;-) ).

It's over for me! Home from school, should be getting ready for the tent-erection practice at cubs.

> tent-erection practice at cubs . Please tell me you didn't hold practice at Neverland Ranch.

LOL No, it's practice putting tents from a packaged state to a fully-unfolded and useful state at speed - there's a competition next week. In the dark!

. I figured that out the second time I read it. Didn't sound good, at all, the first time. Don't know if it's the differences in King's/Colonial English or if I'm just a dirty old man.

Nah, I would call it Monty Python syndrome *LOL*

Arrr! Be the land-lubbin' childers rightly impressed by ye? An' 'ave ye been a-press-ganging any of 'em into a-joinin' the pirating life?

I don't think the scunners be impressed - more confused when I made them answer the register Aye, Cap'n!, then the deputy head came in and we had a conversation that consisted entirely of aargh!.

That was when they started to edge sideways out of the room... =D

Arrgh, I war surprizored thart one of me friendseys mentioned thars day of Talk like a piratey!
