International Talk Like A Pirate Day

September 12th, 2008

This coming Friday is Talk Like a Pirate Day (UK site)- and I’m getting a start “Let’s download that <insert popular movie> torrent and let’s start up Limewire…”

Oh – you mean not a “software pirate” but the global warming preventing Aaarr! pirates.

Matt Cutts has some appropriate pirate fonts available from his site (along with some other font hints/tips such as making a font online for free).

Anyway, if you’re unwilling to learn how to talk like a pirate you Bilge rat, then show a leg my hearties and be reading this Peter Pan extract before you go down into Davy Jones’ Locker without grog!

Avast belay, yo ho, heave to,
A-pirating we go
And if we’re parted by a shot
We’re sure to meet below!
Yo ho, yo ho, the pirate life,
The flag o’skull and bones
A merry hour, a hempen rope
And ‘hey’ for Davy Jones!
