Avast ye! Next Saturday be International Talk Like a Pirate Day! It also be the monthly chantey sing in Portsmouth!
So I bin thinkinâ€™ â€" why not share our piratical lifestyle (by which I mean maritime music) with the unsuspectinâ€™ landlubbers oâ€™ Portsmouth? Thar be many landlubbers out anâ€™ about that day, for the Faerie House Tours, the Local Fish and Lobster Festival, and other occurrences. It could be great sport to surprise unsuspectinâ€™ lubbers with a vigorous chantey or poignant forebitter and then move on to the next target.
If ye be interested, send me an e-mail. I be thinkinâ€™ oâ€™ a rendez-vous near Market Square around two bells, a couple hours oâ€™ maraudinâ€™, and then the usual chantey round at The Press Room.
~Chris the Ninja Pirate (yarr!)
 That be 1 pm for ye lubbers.
 Itâ€™s bin pointed out to me that the scurvy Council oâ€™ Portsmouth frowns on buskinâ€™ these days. Since when to pirates follow the rules? But I intend to be mobile, and not to ask fer loot from our victims, so no fear.
 E-mail me at me Mudcat username at maden dot org, as I donâ€™t check here too often.

Chris, the Fish & Lobster fest is trying to put on shanty singers between noon & 3:00 (see details on the shanty sing thread) you might want to bring your sword, sidearm & voice down to Strawberry Banke & busk in the park.
