Talk Like a Pirate Day

This be Dread Pirate Kidd.
“Like the famous Dread Pirate Roberts, you have a keen head for how to make a profit. Even though you're not always the traditional swaggering gallant, your steadiness and planning make you a fine, reliable pirate. Arr!”
What is your prirate name?

Arr! Dis be me pirate nife, dat me be carry where ever me be goin'. Arr!

De last times I be a goin’ to NYC when my aunt from Austria be visitin’, I done forget about de knife. I be priratin’ me aunt to sight the Empire State Building. De dastardly Queen’s men yanked me aside for having a weapon in me scabbard. Dat little incident be good for a few har hars throughout da day.

Me fruit of me loins won me dis knife at the PA RenFaire a couple of years ago. It be makin’ me feel dangerous, especially when I be usin’ it to decapitate flowers. Arr!


  1. Avast me mateyblogbud. Decapitating flowers, ehhh? A fine hobby for a lovely wench as you. Now, hand over the knife and no one get hurts. Arrr !

  2. Black Charity Witch: Arr! Stand down me piratey mate or a swash buckling duel will be needed to swab these timbers (I don't know - it's my first time - I'm a pirate speaking virgin.) Arr!

  3. "Kitne aadmi the sarkar?" This pirate is from india and speaks Hindi!!
    :-) Pirate speak was amusing.

  4. What are all pirate movies rated? Arrrrrr

  5. LOL...decapitating be one dangerous pirate lady! Arrrr!!!

  6. Dirty Sam Rackham

    You're the pirate everyone else wants to throw in the ocean -- not to get rid of you, you understand; just to get rid of the smell. You have the good fortune of having a good name, since Rackham (pronounced RACKem, not rack-ham) is one of the coolest sounding surnames for a pirate. Arr!

    Pleased to meet you... I mean ARRRH, welcome aboard laddie! I am going to go swab the deck, walk a plank and call it a day.

  7. I be th' Dread Pirate Bonney, at yer service!

  8. That's Rach'em as in, rack'em n sack'em, Mate. Then we throws'em overboard! harharhar

    Thars a cute little flower sticker ya gots thar. I bet the roses tremble at the site o' yer flag!

  9. Nice. Let's just make sure you don't decapitate anything other than the flowers, you wreckless wench.

  10. Decapitating flowers? Now you are scaring me.

  11. I did the pirate name thing and didn't like the result. I want a recount.

  12. "pieces of eight", "pieces of eight", oh sorry did you say pirate?

  13. Arrr. Was dat decapitating flowers or deflowering them? Or both?

    Those poor flowers don't have a chance, they're rooted to the spot.

    I can't even do "pirate speak" that well. Sorry. Interesting read, though. :)

  14. I can't believe I missed talk like a pirate day! However...did you ever see the guy that invented this silliness? He was on wife swap once. Hideous slob.

  15. Arrrrrrr

    Glad to see ye have a nice knife.

  16. Nice weapon there, matey. (Look out flowers!)

  17. I am Captain Grace Roberts:

    "Even though there's no legal rank on a pirate ship, everyone recognizes you're the one in charge. Two things complete your pirate persona: style and swagger. Maybe a little too much swagger sometimes -- but who really cares? Arr! "

  18. Ps: I tried translating your question, but no one translates Hindi for free online. I think the first word is “How much.” I got no where with the rest. Please, someone tell me, so I can sleep at night; D

    Ve: He, he.

    DaBich: I know. Beware.

    Dirty Sam, aka kanrei: Yo, ho, ho, how about some rum?

    Madam Wilde: I have heard you be Bonny.

    Quilly: I bet ye have some good pirate hidin’ places in yer new island home.

    Cindra: I have lots a couple fingers. Just call me Stubby.

    Princess Jackie: Us pirates be very scary.

    Tlp: Just swashbuckle them.

    Bazza: Priates likes gold.

    Shari: Me priates don’t be caring how we be gttin’ our victums.

    Kat: I will look the varment up.

    Debs: It be bloody with flower sap. Argh!

    Mizmel: Their safe for a while. It’s fall now.

  19. DCMM: You can't have TOO MUCh swagger, can you?

  20. aye did thee take picture of the Empire state bldg? In all white?
    Mad Peg...

  21. Captain Anne Rackham to you matey! Ay, I sees I have some family here.

  22. Did I understand that you were mugged by men from Queens whilst your aunt visited in NYC?!

  23. I'm sorry, but I refuse to talk like a pirate.

  24. Dang!!!I missed talk like a Pirate had it been talk like Pirate week...OK!!!OK!!!Arrrrrrr!!!

    Funny post...Now look Lady, do I need to hide my plants next time you visit?

  25. I was long john silvers. Now give me that parrot. And I'm bummed because I left two comments yesterday - blogger ate them all.

  26. Aaaar me hearty, I can't tarry too long, I be pillaging the islands of Greece but I thank ye for yer blather on me blog. I'll be back to pillage you an' your blog soon as I'm done aaaarrrr.

    Ye scurvy dog,

  27. Anon/Mad Peg: Aye I did. My July 1st post on my photography blog has the beauty in all her glory.

    G: They may have been from Queens.

    Rhea: That’s fine. You’ll just have to walk the plank. Or share a tankard of rum.

    Mo’a: Your garden will be a safe haven.

    Tsduff: Blogger must have been pirating, cause the parrots are gone, too.

    Michael: Searching for treasure to pirate, me matey? Do tomatoes travel well in treasure chests?

  28. Funny. While every one were speaking pirate, me thought it were Scary Monster day.


  29. 'Kitne admi the sarkar?' is a line from a very famous Hindi movie called Sholay.The fame of sholay is legendary.This is a dialogue uttered in the movie.There is a dreaded villain called Gabbar singh who is not a pirate.(I guess you can call him a dacoit)
    Sarcar literally means Government--but here it is an expression for a don. admi means man.
    So basically "kitne aadmi the?" asks how many men were there.
    I guess you have to watch sholay to get the full meaning!!

  30. that was a great knife! elegant and rare.

    nice post! ;0)

  31. Scary: Me thoughts it be always Scary Monster Day. STOMP.

    Ps: I looked Sholay up on Wikipedia (isn't life great?) I'll see if I can find it. Sounds very interesting.

    Reign: Hi. It is very rare. Only 983,426 given out at the Faire; D

  32. Yes, well, last time I checked, it was called, "INTERNATIONAL Talk Like A Pirate Day." And did you know that it was started by two guys from the Northwest? Oregon, even, maybe, but I'm not so sure, maybe, and stuff? Well? Did you?

  33. Oooops. Almost forgot:


  34. Gawpy: Did I offend you INTERNATIONALS?

    I had no idea what this was, I just like dirty, old pirates.

    Arr, yuck.
