Filed under: cracks us up
*WE had this post ready for yesterday, but then a certain beloved Penguin popped in with her delightful post about cheesy pick-up lines and, well, what can we say? We love us some good cheese! So, tho’ a day late and a doubloon short, we figure we might still have time to capitalize on Pirate Fever (catch it!) if we hurry.

AVAST YE HEARTIES! WE don’t want to alarm anyone, but
today is yesterday was… (brace yourselves)… INTERNATIONAL PIRATE DAY! Woo-hoo… we mean… Arrrrgh (be still your hearts). Just in time (we guess) to coincide with ABC’s newest version of WIFE SWAP (or vice versa), which aired last night two nights ago. Of course, we have no intention of watching Wife Swap, with or without the pirate theme, because we think it’s a stupid premise for a TV show. Besides, we’re quite certain THE PIRATE ELECTIONS were much more entertaining and commercial free, making them the Pirate programming of choice. In all honesty, we wonder why they were slighted in this year’s overall Pirate Day celebration–we’d like to believe it was just an oversight, but we’re in the process of making inquiries, just to make sure.
NOW if you’re like us, and are unfamiliar with the innerworkings of “Pirate Speak” (take this QUIZ to see how much you know) we are more than happy to provide you with this HOW TO TALK LIKE A PIRATE video, along with this helpful printed GUIDE. OR, you could simply
cheat take the easy route and have your text automatically translated for you by using THIS translator, eh hearties? Whatev. We expect to have everyone soundin’ like Cap’n Jack Sparrow in no time flat by 19 September 2007. Savvy?
WHAT can we say? Slow news day.
