Talk Like a Pirate
Ahoy, bilge rats, are ye a fan of Cap'n Jack Sparrow? Or perhaps you like your pirates more evil. Either way, today is Talk Like a Pirate Day. If you visit this site and click on "Talk Like a Pirate" you'll learn what terms like bung hole, horn pipe and grog mean. You'll even learn some pick up lines for those times when you run into a hunky pirate (or pretty lady pirate). In the fun and games section you can see if you'd be a good pirate and create your own name. My new pirate name: Cap'n Mae Slashface. There are pirate songs you can learn as well. For anyone who writes about pirates, you will find a treasure trove of links here to real pirate history.
