Ahoy, Me Hearties!

Some landlubbers may not know, but today is Talk Like A Pirate Day!!!

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?

I think Cap'n Jack is about the sexiest man on the planet... even if he's fictional... It's the eyeliner, yes? GADS but I love a man in eyeliner.

What?

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)

Any of you not quite so into this gender bendy stuff may appreciate Will Turner a little more... and he IS pretty... especially with that GREAT BIG GUN, eh?


And no party is complete without a nice dose o' GROG, right?


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!!!

I like your label, pure insanity! I don't know what you are talking about: "So thar ye go, ye scurvy dogs!" But you sure sound like a pirate.

I would hand over my dubloons and booty quite gladly to a most NAKED Capn Jack. Ahem.

Take care

Creepy Query Girl said...

LOL- so much fun! Thanks for these definitions:)

Jan Morrison said...

Ah yes, the pirate - can I put a word in for two fabulous real women pirates? Yes. I am mad for stories about Mary Read and Anne Bonney. They met under (and I do mean under) the famous scallywag, Calico Jack.
ARRRRRR!
I live in the land of pirates - you should come aboard our scurvy ship some day...we'll scuttle the scupper and head out the bay.

Carol Kilgore said...

Oh, fabulous choice of pirates :)
I think it is the eyeliner that makes Captain Jack Sparrow extra appealing. Sigh.

Clarissa Draper said...

Didn't know there was such a day but there should be, right?

Michael Offutt said...

Didn't Depp play the mysterious lover Don Juan Demarco? If so, I think he got the role for qualities that you've mentioned here.

Happy Speak Like a Pirate Day!

I'm so with you on Cap'n Jack ... eyeliner or no eyeliner. Yum!

LTM said...

I remember TLAP day! Is it already that time again??? time goes so quickly when you're having fun~ :D

P.S.

Arrggh! I knew I liked ye fer a reason, lass! Shiver me timbers, hoist the mainsails! Set a course fer the party and party like it's 1699! Woot!

Holly Ruggiero said...

I thought feeding the fish is what happened when you got sea sick. ;)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Need to find me a sexy pirate lass!

Ciara said...

I'm not sure any other man could pull off eyeliner like my Jack. :)

All you have to say is Depp. That's says it all. :)
