Avast, Me Hearties!

Click now for JiffNotes

Ahoy! It be International Talk Like a Pirate Day! To help all you scaly scalawags out there, I offer my number one tip on how not to sound (or look) like a lubber when talking (or typing) like a pirate:

Pirates say "ARRRR!" They do not say "ARRRGH!" (Or "ARRRG!")

"ARRRGH!" be what ye say if ye drops yer flagon of ale on yer toe (or peg-leg, as the case may be).

So now, step lively, me beauties, and hoist yer colors fer all the world to see!

Arrrr! It appears even as a pirate, I be a grammar nerd.

Me non-pirate colleagues and student teachers I was mentoring thought I was a mast short of a mainsail at first....Next year there be Talk Like A Pirate Day at our school as a fundraiser....It does me old black heart good to know me swashbuckling nuttiness is catching!
