Holiday Hits: Talk Like a Pirate Day!

From 1000 Flags

Ahoy, mateys -- happy Talk Like a Pirate Day!  And what better way to practice the lingo than by watching this silent movie called "The Black Pirate" (1926) while filling in the dialogue yourself?  (Just in case you're a little rusty, here are a few helpful hints).  Now weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen, then splice the mainbrace with a bottle of rum and sing a few chanteys until you're three sheets to the wind -- but don't go walking any planks, dancing with Jack Ketch, or visiting Davey Jones' locker.  Fair winds, me buckos!  Arrrr!!!
