Pretty as a Pirate

Pretty Purple Pirate

It’s National Talk Like a Pirate Day, one of my favorite silly annual events (that and National Underwear Day can duke it out for my giggly appreciations).

We (by which I mean Pierre: this is that rare use of the Royal Pierre that you may have read about in grammar books) have whipped up a handy surly scurvy-dog text translater for those o’ ye who don’t speak Pirate. There are a few of these on the web, but ours is unique in that we only finished the first few hours of the Pirates’ Cant correspondence course. Which was enough. It’s a remarkably expressive tongue, and it boils down to just a few basic principles, and I think you’ll agree that we’ve pretty much nailed the rudiments of discourse.

Generate some Pirate Talk here on Pepper of the Earth with our jin-u-wine home-made first-generation Pirate Talk Convert-o-Lator. You’ll have the hang of it in no time. (Click on that link to start things off. Arrr.)
