By the way, did you realise that the dread Pirate Bonney was actually a girl? Two of the best (i.ie., they made lots of dosh and didn't get hanged) pirates were women?

My boyfriend decided to take talk like a pirate day a little too far. He showed up dressed like a pirate last night, in a very cheap nylon costume, and yes, he talked like a pirate. It probably would have been a turn-on if the costume had been a little more classy...

Benny Hill RIP was a British Comedian. He was a strange fish and was I beleive ambisextrous. Anyway he kind of embodied Brit Postcard humor from the 50's. He was popular here in Blighty and went over a storm in Japan. I though all their senses of humour were made by Nippon Laughso ;-)

He did a good if somewhat camp Pirate.

Hello. I am the Chairman of the New York Stock Exchange. I believe that there have been concerns about my recent package of benefits, which seem to be in line, by and large, with compensations that accrue to other executives who, by sheer talent and sweat of their brow, are worth 48 million dollars more than the people who work all day at McDonalds. And if you don't quite understand that, you don't understand piracy.

Landlocked tho' we be, apart from the River Aire and the Aire and Calder canal, my offspring, steered her course to college in Pontefract to find that she was alone...Yaaargh! No other members of the brethren had dared to reveal their true identities! It seems that she alone was aware of the public relations exercise that had been planned for 19th September.

Nevertheless, she steered herself into her media study class, where she singlehandedly explained the cut and thrust of hand to hand combat on land and indoors, as portrayed in a recent documentary by Buena Vista on the same.

Faith now, but my two favorite pirates are Captain Peter Blood (fictional) and Grace O'Malley (real). They never talked like Cornishmen, because, as Captain Blood would say, they had the honor to be Irish.
Grace O'Malley would, undoubtably say, "pogue mo breachan". I can't say it anymore, because my sister's one.

Walk the plank? By the powers!!!! That be no real punishment fer a seafarin' man. That be a Victorian embellishment fer them adventurin' tales what they were so fond of. Yer actual pyrates an' buccaneers (them wi' the hat...) didn't hold with no walking o' the plank!!! Discipline on a freebooting ship were a more delicate thing see you. A cap'n that wanted to keep his ship and his crew took good care to make sure they knew what'd happen to any man-jack as turned agin 'is cap'n an' 'is mates!!! Swift and merciless were the usual way, wi' a cut throat or a ball through his body. Fer a matter less serious, if'n a touch up wi' the cat weren't considered sufficient, then a good keel-haulin' be more like it. Or maroonin' the miscreant on a sandbank an' then standin' off as the tide come in were allus good fer a laugh . That be more like the thing, aharr!! Mind, that be fer a first offence like. Fer an idea o' something a bit more serious, I'd refer ye to Iron Roger's inventiveness a few posts back......

Mind ye, ye'll have to do without Iron Roger hissel' as this 'ere vessel o' mine be a-presently a-bearin' down on him wi' a full broadside o' twelves and nines ready fer his breakfast, an' he's all took aback, the swab, wi' his sails at slack an' his scurvy crew o' dockside tavern scrapin's cowerin' in the scuppers. Now then, Bonney, where be ye now wi' yer high flown words, ye foul damned drunken scabby black-hearted and accursed apology fer a seafarer? Mister 'Awkins, I'll thank 'e ter put a match to yer touch-hole as she rises. Fire away together, damn yez!!! Aye, take ye that through yer rotten bulwarks, Bonney!!!!!! Aharrrrr!!!!
