National Talk Like A Pirate Day

In honor of National Talk Like A Pirate Day today, I am going to share my favorite pirate joke. It sounds best spoken, but this will have to do:

“A pirate walks into a bar. He’s got this giant wooden steering wheel coming right out of the crotch of his pants.

Everyone tries to be polite, but finally the barkeep has to ask: “What IS that thing, man?”

Pirate looks down and says, “Arrgh. I donno matey, but it’s drivin’ me nuts.”

And how perfect is it that there was a whole blessed CD of pirate songs that just came out?

A Dying Sailor To His Shipmates” – Bono

  • That pirate photo is definitely the exact logo of my elementary and junior high schools that I went to.

  • Callie – the Minnesota Vikings logo is the exact same as my high school and I always do a double take if I see it emblazoned on a car or something – I’m like “Hey! They went to Lynbrook–no, waaiiiit….”

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
