It’s International “Talk Like a Pirate” Day

Oh, I suppose you were thinking all literal-minded, all “inside the box,” weren’t you? WEREN’T YOU?!


Guess that one is a little more on topic (…especially for those of you who simply refuse to do any pushing of envelopes, and just leave all envelopes lying around, willy-nilly, un-pushed).

And if you plan on getting all pirate-y today, it’s worth remembering who really invented the pirate as we know it today. Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Robert Newton, a.k.a. the Original Pirate-Gangsta, a.k.a. Long John Silver* (daring to wear red, in this clip):

(* a character who never, so far as I know, served Popcorn Shrimp Combo Basket Platters aboard the Hispaniola)

[P.S. Joey Pants contest winner will be announced over the weekend.]
