Ahoy, Me Hearties!
Now my REAL blogging efforts have been put into today's Burrower's, Books and Balderdash post on books about pirates. HERE, we're having a little Pirate Party...
And if we are going to have a PIRATE party, we first need a couple PIRATES, eh?
Tell me I'm not alone here.(though the adeptness Depp has with expressions are FABULOUS for making a woman feel naked, which surely is an admirable goal)
And just so yibus know how to speak today... some helpful Pirate Phrases... (for a fuller list, check here)
Ahoy, Matey - Hello, my friend!
Avast ye - stop and check this out or pay attention
Bilge-sucking - insult
Dead men tell no tales - phrase indicating to leave no survivors
Feed the fish - will soon die
Hornswaggle - to defraud or cheat out of money or belongings
Savvy? - do you understand and do you agree?
Scurvy dog - the pirate is talking directly to you with mild insult
Shiver me timbers! - comparable to "Holy Crap!"
Three sheets to the wind - someone who is very drunk. One sheet is mildly drunk and four sheets is passed out.
Yo Ho Ho - cheerful exhortation to demand attention
So thar ye go, ye scurvy dogs! Set out and parlay the word!!!
