Talk Like A Pirate Day 2016

Percy & Marcus
Merci:  Shiver me timbers!  T'is familiar. Do we need to pillage another island for booty for a new graphic?

Cyndi: Visiting landlubbers can have a dreg o' rum on us today. Oh, wait, thee cork fell out of thee barrel and thee rum spilled in that big storm last week.

Merci:  Yarr! We don't really have anything to serve our visitors today, do we?

Cyndi:  Blimey! Nay. What grub didn't fall overboard in thee storm, we stashed away for today's party, but Marcus found it.

Merci:  Shiver me timbers! So thar's nothing left for thee party, is thar?

Cyndi:  Not a morsel.

Merci:  Alas! We'll just have to thank visitors for coming by and tell them thar's a party on thee 3rd pirate galleon to our right, although we're not sure if it's a frivolous party or a walk thee plank party.

Cyndi:  Perhaps we should skip that one and advise them to do thee same, but thar's a big party just a mile downriver.

Merci:  Wait, isn't that thee pirate galleon whar everyone got so three sheets to the wind last year thar was a huge fight and half thee participants fell overboard and drowned?

Cyndi:  Right. I'd forgotten about that. We can cross that off thee list too.

Merci:  Ahoy! How about if we forget about sending visitors to another galleon to party and just send out for pizza?

Cyndi:  Blimey! Fine. How many visitors be we expecting? Er ... how will we pay for the pizzas?

Merci:  We could plunder thee Pirates Nest Bar for loose swag. Drunken pirates be always dropping doubloons and trinkets.

Cyndi:  That's a tough bar. On second thought, let's just turn off thee poop deck light and hide thee welcome mat.

Merci:  Alas! Ye git thee light. I'll turn over thee mat.

  8. Hey, what's that about a POOP DECK? Eeeeeeuuuuuuwwww. I thought all pirate ships had a loo! Or whatever it's called. But thanks anyway for the invite. I lost my eye patch and have to stay home.

    1. Ahoy, Matey, we want to assure you it's safe to walk on the poop deck.

      Poop deck - the part of the ship farthest to the back, which is usually above the captain's quarters. This is not the bathroom.

    2. I KNOW THAT. IT WAS A JOKE!!!! Mama has sailed for many a moon.

    3. We're furries. Personally, we like the idea of a poop deck, but we don't want to swab it. And we don't want any visitors to go Ewwwww. We believe the real poop "poop deck" on a pirate ship was called a head. :)
