We were car shopping. My wife thought our son should get a Yaris. It sounded so much like a car a pirate would own we spent the day doing our own "talk like a pirate."

The younger folk will tell you that there are only 2 kinds of people in the world: Pirates and Ninjas. Right now, the Ninjas dominate and have a higher coolness rating. But I am a Pirate, and it's nice to see we have our own day! Yaaargh, 'tis nice the blowholes must seat in the galley for the trip.

Too much time in the real Navy to willingly speak pirateeze. By the way, piracy is still a real threat on the high seas. Especially bad off the east coast of Africa and in the vicinity of the Strait of Malacca. The U.S. Navy recently had to deter some African pirates from seizing freighters bound for Somalia. From what I understand, though, few if any of them are into biking.

That sounds like something Sen. Larry Craig might have said to that undercover cop.

[QUOTE=Artkansas;5296399]The Dread Pirate Roberts!

Yes, and while it's true that Pirates are nothing more than terrorists with boats/ships , our marketeers have romanticized them (much like they'd done earlier with the outlaws of the "old west" or the killers of the mafia), so that now "talk like a Pirate" is supposed to be a good thing.

Okay, well, I guess Disney is to blame somewhat too (but don't some marketeers work for Disney?). Regardless, I agree that if I had to pick a favorite pirate, it would be The Dread Pirate Roberts!

But who was it that said, "You killed my father, prepare to die!" That was D.P.Robert's friend, right?
