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.)

    I mean, Arrr’arrr arrr arrr arrr?

    Wait, this generator sucks.

    Suck? It doesn’t suck! Well, maybe - but if so, it’s supposed to. Think of it as a Microsoft product. Actually, don’t think of it as a Microsoft product, because at least it works … arrr.

    LOL!!!! I mean, really L!! :)

    Thanks for making me giggle until tears ran down my face.

    Happy talk like a pirate day to you!

    Or, as you’ve taught me to say ARRR ARR ARRRRR ARRR, Matey!

    By Davey Jones, I think she’s got it!

    I hope your page is rated NC 17 because your generator makes my ARRR go ARR ARRR. No joke.

  6. Linus says:

    Once upon a time, the R train was named the RR. I believe it was the Astoria line back then. Thus I conclude that pirates congregate lustily at the Bohemian Beer Hall. Which is probably also NC-17.
