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.
May 2019 be better for us all.

That was my understanding. Especially the Aaargh!  ;D

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

Aaargh! Avast, me hearties!

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.

Now that's funny.

A joke I heard yesterday on the radio.

Who is a pirate's favorite independent actor?

Peter Saaarrrsgaaargh!

:laugh:


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

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.  :(
