Shiver me timbers

Ahoy, mateys! In case you haven't already heard, Sept. 19 is International Talk Like a Pirate Day, so avast your everyday speech and let your inner swashbuckler come to the surface.

International Talk Like a Pirate Day was started in 1995 by two guys who call themselves Cap'n Slappy and Ol' Chumbucket. It became popular after Dave Barry wrote about it in 2002.

This brings up my sons' favorite joke:

Pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel attached to his crotch. The bartender says, "Hey, Cap'n, what's with the steering wheel?"

The pirate says, "Arrr, it's driving me nuts!"

Ol' Peg Leg the pirate is knockin' back a cup o' grog with the boys and asks 'arrrgh, whadda ya get when you cross a great white shark and a cow?'

Barmate says 'Arrrgh, I don't know.'

Peg Leg says "Arrgh, I don't know either, but I don't want to milk it"
