I bumped the thread in Current Events, but since this is a holiday, in fact the High Holy Day of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, I think it rightfully belongs here on the Holiday Forum.

The day this year, and date, is Thursday, September 19.

Go over to the new poll on this Holiday Forum and take a guess as to the real words Long John Silver spoke in Treasure Island. Time Magazine today says that the pirate talk is a fiction dreamed up by Walt Disney and Robert Newton, who played the buccaneer in Disney's version of the story in 1950.

That movie was on TCM not too long ago, but too late for me to watch on a work night.

Tell you what.  laugh

When I left the office to return home this afternoon, I realized that this morning, without realizing what I was doing, I did something utterly appropriate for International Talk Like a Pirate Day. When I left home this morning, I wore my souvenir cap that commemorates the Whydah, a really genuine pirate ship that came to grief off Cape Cod in 1717.

There is a museum dedicated to the ship in Provincetown.

You guys are a couple of deuces!

I was pushing my three grandchildren in a stroller to the park yesterday and Grandchild #2 had brought his pirate sword and was dragging it on the ground. I said, "Charlie don't do that, you're making the blade dull." ( laugh it's made out of foam.) Grandchild #1 asked, "What's 'dull'?" "Blunt," I answered. Grandchild #1 asked, "What's 'blunt'?" "ROUGH!" I answered.

You should have seen them in their "pirate ship". Grandchild #3 rode in front, brandishing her sippy cup. Grandchild #2 rode in the poop deck and Grandchild #1 stood on the running board, pointing the way. Bringing up the rear was the tugboat, grandma.

Wow! I've seen strollers for two, but never for three! That must be quite the battle ship of strollers! Were you flying the Jolly Roger?

I'm glad I accidentally wore my cap yesterday. I have two Jolly Roger t-shirts and didn't think to wear either of them.  Sad

R. was telling me about how many pirates were gay and it was like a fellowship. I'm going to look up the show Black Sails, which is supposed to be a prequel to Treasure Island, written by my ancestor R. L. Stevenson, and is an adult telling of a pirate story.

Not to rain on the parade of the pirate talkers, but it's believed pirates didn't talk the way we think they did.   At least that's what I heard on the radio on the way to work today.  I decided to do a quick google search, and found a site that confirmed what the radio DJs said.

Apparently there's not a lot of written records from pirates, and it's believed that pirates spoke exactly the same as English-speaking merchant sailors of the time, since large numbers in both groups tended to be from riverfront neighborhoods around London.

Many of the phrases that most people think of as pirate speech today can actually be traced back to the 1950s Disney movie Treasure Island, starring Robert Newton as fictional pirate Long John Silver.

"Newton's performance—full of 'arrs,' 'shiver me timbers,' and references to landlubbers—not only stole the show, it permanently shaped pop culture's vision of how pirates looked, acted, and spoke," Woodard said.

"Afterwards, Newtonesque pirates were everywhere, from Captain Hook to Captain McCallister of the Simpsons series."

Earlier today I found an old HuffPost article that said it went back even farther than Newton, to a 1934 film of Treasure Island, where Lionel Barrymore (who did not play Long John Silver) said "Aaargh."

Newton's performance certainly "popularized" it.

I watched Black Sails tonight while babysitting. Terrible! So many women. . .there weren't that many women around during pirating days. You're right about the accents, Chuck, if this series is authentic. Which it can not possibly be, since almost all the pirates had blue eyes and perfect teeth.
