Talk like a Pirate!

Holy crap, the holidays do sneak up on you, don’t they? The Inquirer reminds us that it’s already September 19th, which is International Talk Like A Pirate Day! Yarr! Shiver me timbers, it be today!

(I’ll look at comments later, and any comments not in Pirate-speak will walk the plank! Arrr! If you have trouble with that, you could buy a Pirate keyboard.)

Have a good day, mateys!

Update: Aye, i had no idea thar war so many pirates on the web and at Google. Har’s a picture o’ someone in the cafeteria who dressed up (showin’ his picture with his permission):

(Yarrr! Not reproducing the picture here because my camera phone has been struck with scurvy and it cannae email pictures. Or the packets have hit a hidden sandbar in Verizon’s network, laddies.)

At Google I also saw pirate T-shirts and (no joke) someone had what looked like a li’e gray parrot on their shoulder, argh!

    Tis a nasty trick to be killed by ye white whale that has a “G” on his belly right before holiday time!

    Why all the bloody duplicates in the new search returns and tons of ebay listings and flotsam from directories rather than the good old RELEVANT results the whale used to list? Time for the whale to burp to make room for a hardy list of sites and hoist ye glass a dozen times in hopes of a Mountain View sleighride to get ye back on course without another year lost at sea. Too much blubber in the new returns.

    Thar she blows!
    Did ye whale cause thousands of ships to sink again?
    Arggggh, yes it did! Time to change course, Captain Matt!

    This all gives new meaning to 2 sheets to the wind, you know! (or reason to be in such a state as my site walked the plank).

    Even so, I really enjoy your comments and videos and the characters who post here. You are all informative, helpful and have great senses of humor which takes the edge off the trauma G serps cause.

    I’m shoving off to add some content to the sites, wish me luck, mates!

  19. John A. Davis

    Not sure if any of you were around then but wasn’t San Franscisco famous for “Head Comics” which had this pirate guy that was always saying “bite me crank, matey”? I think his name was Captain Pissgums. You are all children to the hippies. Not that it means much. . .

  20. Brian Combs: what about Ninja Pirates? Those are the ultimate in cool…yarr!

  21. Matt Cutts, for your willful commission of crime against the blogosphere,
    those crimes being numerous in quantity and sinister in nature:

    …impersonating an officer of the CSS skilled community; impersonating a clergy of the Church of W3C; arson; kidnapping the real Matt Cutts for 5 blog post absent days; perjury; piracy; pilfering of site: and info: queries; deprivation of a blog reader for 5 days.

    For these crimes you will be hung by the neck until dead. May God have mercy on your soul.
