International Talk Like a Pirate Day

19 Sep

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


Ahoy, mateys!  Today is International Talk Like A Pirate Day!!  It’s a day for fun – you know a day to let our inner pirate come out just for fun.  Practice your pirate talk and talk like a pirate all day long to everyone.  See how much fun you can have telling people to ‘walk the plank’… chitter chatter – so funny!  Just remember, it’s not required that you dress like a pirate as long as you talk like a pirate.

20130601-002004.jpgFor your convenience, I’m adding a few words that might come in handy this day.  Be sure to fit them into your conversations somewhere and see the reaction on people’s faces.

Ahoy! – “Hello!”

Avast! “Whoa! Get a load of that!”

Aye! – “Why yes, I agree most heartily with everything you just said or did.”

Aye aye! – “I’ll get right on that sir, as soon as my break is over.”

Arrr! – “Yes,” “I agree”; “I’m happy”; “That was a clever remark you or I just made.” Note:  not to be confused with Arrgghh

Beauty – The best possible pirate address for a woman. Always preceded by “me,” as in,“C’mere, me beauty.”.

Bilge rat – The bilge is the lowest level of the ship. It’s loaded with ballast and slimy, reeking water. A bilge rat, then, is a rat that lives in the worst place on the ship. A lot of guy humor involves insulting your buddies to prove your friendship. It’s important that everyone understand you are smarter, more powerful and much luckier with the wenches than they are. Since bilge rat is a pretty dirty thing to call someone, by all means use it on your friends.

Bung hole – The sto20130601-002022.jpgpper in the barrel is called the bung, and the hole is called the bung hole. That’s all. It sounds a lot worse, doesn’t it?

Grog – An alcoholic drink, usually rum diluted with water. Call your beer grog if you want.

Hornpipe – Both a single-reeded musical instrument sailors often had aboard ship, and a spirited dance that sailors do. 


And of course, Bacon’s dad is bouncing right along with today.  He’s already confronted Bacon’s mom with a couple of what shall we say ‘off-colored’ pirate talk this morning.  Shakes my head.  He has persuaded me in a bucket of nuts to add a few of his oh so wonderful pick up lines.  (Yes, I can be bought and influenced and I know you are going to try a few of these so there.)

And, I’m taking bets how much Bacon’s mom can take before she makes him walk the plank!

.Avast, me proud beauty! Wanna know why my Roger is so Jolly?

Come on up and see me urchins.

I’ve sailed the seven seas, and you’re the sleekest schooner I’ve ever sighted.

That’s some treasure chest you’ve got there.
That’s the finest pirate booty I’ve ever laid eyes on.

Happy International Pirate Day me buckos!
