Smile Talk Like A Pirate Day

ARRRRRRR me mates. Funny I didn't see this mentioned on this list. For those of you not in the know today is International Talk like a pirate day.

I have included a link to help those of you that lack Piratetude and have no idea of how to talk.

We talked like pirates in French class today. You may recall that in Pirates of the Caribbean a "parley" is a major event, involving getting to talk to the person you want to talk with, without fear of reprisal (until afterwards, of course). We heard about this, plus the words parlor and parliament, where people talk instead of beating each other over the head, and how they are all based on the French "parler" - to talk. Then we practiced saying "Largez les amarres!!" (Cast off!!) in a robust, piratical manner.

I went further then just talking like a pirate...I went and did some angle-grinding without safety glasses and ended up needing a metal splinter removed form my left eye....So at the moment I am sitting here with an eyepatch THAT ACTUALLY NEEDS TO BE THERE...But only till the morning...when the doc gets to laugh at me again.

My wife drove me fomr the surgery straight to the hardware store and I got to approach the counter and ask "which aisle are you safety glasses in, please?"

The woman may have stopped laughing by now...

Maybe...

I feel stupid.

But I got to say "AAAARGH!!!" As the doc pulled the metal shard out.

Hope yer eye's ok Sasha. I took a shard from a hydraulic metal shear once when I was too dumb and lazy to walk across the shop for a shield! No permanent damage thankfully. Would love to have been at the hardware store!

O the year was 1778
How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now
A letter of marque came from the king
To the scummiest vessel I've ever seen
God damn them all
I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold
We'd fire no guns, shed no tears
Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier,
The last of Barrett's Privateers

O Elcid Barrett cried the town
How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now
For twenty brave men all fishermen who
Would make for him the Antelope's crew
God damn them all . . . .
I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold
We'd fire no guns, shed no tears
Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier,
The last of Barrett's Privateers


The Antelope sloop was a sickening site
How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now
She'd list to the port and her sails in rags
And the cook in the scuppers with the staggers and jags
God damn them all . . . .
I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold
We'd fire no guns, shed no tears
Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier,
The last of Barrett's Privateers


4. On the King's birthday we put to sea
How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now
Ninety-one days to Montego Bay
Pumping like madmen all the way
God damn them all . . . .
I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold
We'd fire no guns, shed no tears
Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier,
The last of Barrett's Privateers


5. On the ninety-sixth day we sailed again
How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now
When a great big Yankee hove in sight
With our cracked four-pounders we made to fight
God damn them all . . . .
I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold
We'd fire no guns, shed no tears
Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier,
The last of Barrett's Privateers


6. The Yankee lay low down with gold
How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now
She was broad and fat and loose in stays
But to catch her took the Antelope two whole days
God damn them all . . . .
I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold
We'd fire no guns, shed no tears
Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier,
The last of Barrett's Privateers


7. Then at length she stood two cables away
How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now
Our cracked four-pounders made awful din
But with one fat ball the Yank stove us in
God damn them all . . . .
I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold
We'd fire no guns, shed no tears
Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier,
The last of Barrett's Privateers


8. The Antelope shook and pitched on her side
How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now
Barrett was smashed like a bowl of eggs
And the main truck carried off both me legs
God damn them all . . . .
I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold
We'd fire no guns, shed no tears
Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier,
The last of Barrett's Privateers


9. Now here I lay in my twenty-third year
How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now
It's been six years since we sailed away
And I just made Halifax yesterday
God damn them all . . . .
I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold
We'd fire no guns, shed no tears
Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier,
The last of Barrett's Privateers

We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through

Some people are like slinkies: not really good for anything... but you can't help laughing when you push them down the stairs
