Ahoy There, Matey!

Did ye think I’d forgot? Nay. I was navigating the frozen sea they call I35 on the way home from a successful sail upon the convention seas, but how could I forget to raise a glass to “Talk like a Pirate” Day? Ye know I love me some pirates!

It’s hard to believe that this fine holiday is less than thirty years old, but it was started in 1995 (though according to their own website, today marks the 20th anniversary. One o’ us is not good at tha countin’…or mebbe tha first few were practice.🤔 )

If ye be wantin’ t’ throw a little lingo into yer evenin’ celebrations, here’s a fine list o’ pirate talk to talk.

Meself, I have always been partial t’ pirates. From watching Blackbeard’s Ghost as a wee lass to rooting for Jack Sparrow and his mates in the Pirates of The Caribbean franchise, pirates have had a favored spot in me heart.

And it reflects in me work, don’t it? I’ve got several offerings in tha pirate realm:

Ye remember that one, with tha flyin’ Elven pirates, don’cha? If not, ye might want t’ take a look here to refresh yer mind. And, if ye still don’t recall–mebbe ya haven’t read it and should remedy that situation. 😜

Fer some reason, me pirates tend t’ ride tha skies rather than tha water. Fer example, here:

Lots o’ pirate shenanigans in that one. A fine anthology iffn I do say so meself.

And there were those dreaded days when Marc Gunn was in the hands o’ Black Jack Murphy and we worked out these here songs to help him escape. He smuggled out these pages about the ordeal as well:

It’s about time fer me t’ go lift that glass, me hearty–but Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day t’ ye one and all.
