Arrrhhh, mateys!

You know what today is, right?

September 19 = International Talk Like A Pirate Day 

Pirates are everywhere.

Pirates vs ninjas




PIrates come in a variety of formats.

In my youth, a pirate always looked like this (Cyril Richard in Peter Pan).

Nowadays, however, pirates are more likely to look like these guys.




To quote the author of the blog where I found some of these photos, “At least those guys are wearing bandanas.”

And now, for your viewing enjoyment, let me leave you with this image of everyone’s favorite pirate(s).


Jack Sparrow fans can get their own pirate here.

    Ah, they don’t make ’em like the Dread Pirate Roberts anymore:
    “You mean you’ll put down your rock and I’ll put down my sword, and we’ll try and kill each other like civilized people?”

    I have my very own…DH (although we call each other Freaky Consort)’s birthday is today!
    and it’s the big 60 today….pretty long-lived for a pirate, I’m guessing.
