ARRRR! It's that time again...

Yes, today is September 19...which means...


So, besides being a closet kung-fu fan, I am also a fan of pirates. Well...not real pirates, like the ones who just attacked ships in South Asia last week or the ones who attacked a Greek ship this morning. But like...fake pirates...except that they represent real pirates from way back in history, so I guess that's still bad. Hm.

Okay, I just like the idea of dressing up like pirates and speaking silly pirate talk and being jolly about it. So that's why I like National Talk Like a Pirate Day.

You can read alllllllllll about it from Dave Barry's site here:

Have you figured out your pirate name yet? Do it here. Mine be Mary Cricket the Mad!

Yes, I have gone mad. But it only be for a day, mates. I'm not the only one, either. In London they're having a whole PIRATE FESTIVAL!!

AND DON'T FERGET TO LOAD UP ON THE PIRATES BOOTY!!! (man, that stuff is sooooooo addicting...)

Aye, now I'll finish up this post with some good pirate jokes you can tell your friends:

Q: How do ya know yer a pirate?
A: You just arrrrrrrrrrr!!

Q: Have you seen the latest Pirate Movie? It's rated ARRRRRRRRRR!

Q: What's a pirate's favorite song?
A: We ARRRRR the Champions!

You can find more here.

Aye, I be done now. I don't care that people are laughing AT me and not with me.

Nothing like something silly on a Friday to end a good week. Perhaps I was laughing with you and at you. So here are pirate names. If I just go with Lee, it's Bill the Brown. If I enter Lee Alderman it becomes Bill Green Tongue. WTF???
