Sunday Funnies: International Talk Like a Pirate Day

Today's Sunday Funnies be in honor o' International Talk Like a Pirate Day. This entire post be dedicated t' speakin' like a pirate. This day only comes around once a year so we might as well have a ball with it while it lasts!

If you don't quite have a grasp on speakin' like a Pirate, thar be several sites on t' net that can help you out.

T' start out with, let's visit t' Original TLAP web site.  There, you can find tons o' links t' get you on your way t' livin' t' pirate life. (Well, speakin' it, anyway.)

If you want t' see some pirate talkin' in action, then I suggest you head t' t' TLAP YouTube page.

But t' fun doesn't stop thar! There be pirate quizzes t' let you know just how much o' a pirate you are, name generators for your ships and for yourself if you're havin' trouble settlin' on just t' starboard pirate name, links t' info on real pirates and even links t' buy some pirate gear t' make you look like a real pirate.  Have a look around. I'm aye you'll find somethin' that strikes your fancy.

I did me pirate quiz and found out just who I would be on t' ship:

You are The Cap'n!

Some men and women are born great, some achieve greatness and some slit the throats of any scalawag who stands between them and unlimited power. You never met a man - or woman - you couldn't eviscerate. You are the definitive Man of Action, the CEO of the Seven Seas, Lee Iacocca in a blousy shirt and drawstring-fly pants. You're mission-oriented, and if anyone gets in the way, that's his problem, now isn't? Your buckle was swashed long ago and you have never been so sure of anything as your ability to bend everyone to your will. You will call anyone out and cut off his head if he shows any sign of taking you on or backing down. If one of your lieutenants shows an overly developed sense of ambition he may find more suitable accommodations in Davy Jones' locker. That is, of course, IF you notice him. You tend to be self absorbed - a weakness that may keep you from seeing enemies where they are and imagining them where they are not.
