Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Ahoy, mateys!

It’s here!  It’s finally, finally here!

(No, not MUST LOVE VAMPIRES.  Though that is right around the corner. :vamp )

National Talk Like a Pirate Day is finally here!  I’ve only been waiting for this since about September 2oth of last year!

So what have we done in the past to mark this momentous holiday?  We’ve made lists of our favorite pirate movies & books…  We’ve shared pics of our pirate—& pirate wench—costumes…  We’ve talked like pirates, of course, & named our favorite from the big screen & raunchy romantic literature…

I think we should do all of that again, if we want…especially talking like pirates.  I mean, it’s called Talk Like a Pirate Day so that’s kind of a requirement!  But otherwise, it’s a Talk Like a Pirate free-for-all!

I’m going to provide you with a recipe for some hearty pirate grog (which can also be considered our Drink of the Month, if you like) & then let me buxom beauties decide what else we should do to celebrate.

And fair warning—any swashbuckler who thinks her peg leg is too good to participate will be forced to walk the plank!

Pirate Punch


32 oz. can pineapple juice
12 oz. can orange juice concentrate
6 oz. can lemonade concentrate
5 cups cold water
1 quart 7-UP


Mix ’em up, serve, & start drinking like a pirate who can handle her…well, there’s no liquor in this, but still!  Enjoy!

      You can tell I’m feeling a little green around the gills & haven’t gotten my sea legs under me yet. (I’m such a landlubber!) I forgot to congratulate Jane on snagging the very special Pirate’s Booty prize today.

      As an extra-special treat, you can have this pirate’s booty, too, if you want:

    A pirate walks into a bar with a ship’s wheel attached to his belt. He hobbles up to the bartender as best he can while toting the rather large accessory and orders rum. The bartender, while he finds the pirate’s attire a bit odd, fills a glass with rum and slides it to the pirate. After the pirate drinks one, he orders another. Then another.

    Finally, the bartender grows curious and as he delivers the third rum to the pirate asks, “Doesn’t it bother you having that ship’s wheel attached to your pants?”

    “Aye,” the pirate replies. “It’s driving me nuts.”


    (I also posted pics of mine & the hub’s pirate costumes from years back on my blog. Captain Jack, le swoon!)

    Have you heard about the new pirate movie?
    It’s rated AARRRRRR! Why? Because of all the booty!

    A pirate walks into a bar wearing a paper towel on his head. He sits down at the bar and orders some dirty rum.

    The bartender asks, “Why are you wearing a paper towel?”

    “Arrrrr…” says the pirate. “I’ve got a bounty on me head!”

    Where did the one legged pirate go for breakfast?


    A pirate with an eye patch, a hook, and a peg leg walks into a tavern and orders a rum. Curious, the bartender says, “You look like you’ve been through a lot of sea battles. How did you get the peg leg?” The pirate answered, “Arr, a cannonball blew me leg right off in the midst of battle!”
    “Wow! And how about the hook?” asked the bartender.
    “Arr, me hand was eaten by a shark on the high seas!”
    “That’s amazing! And the eye patch?”
    “Arr, a seagull crapped in me eye.”
    Confused, the bartender asked, “How can you lose your eye from seagull crap?”
    Replied the pirate, “Well, it was me first day with the hook.”
