    September 19th in the year of our Lord two thousand an' five be the next International Talk Like a Pirate Day

    All ye who remember it fro' last year be ready t' don ya eye patch an' talk like a pirate for th' day.


  2. Is there arrse history around talking like a pirate? Might be missing something here, but there are threads of merit and importance in the naafi by masters of words such as RTFQ that have never deserved a sticky?

    Why does talking like a pirate deserve one? or do you like it and your a MOD so it gets one?

    Personally, i'm at work on Sep the 19th, and my second reporting officer is a Navy CDR, He'll think i'm taking the piss and give me an E.

  4. OK MIB, i'll reserve judgement on the pointlessness of it all, so ho ho ho, and a bottle of rum, or something i'll wager. So shiver me timbers, splice the main brace, theres only 2 things in the sea - submarines and targets and anything else the episode of blackadder entitled "Potatoe" can muster. Ye's nout but a slip of a boy to a man
