...Be Annual Talk Like a Pirate Day!! AAARRRR!!!
Quote
You've read about it in Dave Barry's blog. Maybe you caught one of our radio or TV interviews. Or maybe you just stumbled on to our site while googling around for sites your mother probably wouldn't approve of. Perhaps you're one of the millions of people from South Africa to Australia, from New York to the Pacific Northwest, who party like pirates every September 19th.


Mouser: can we get a pirate smiley in honor of this glorious day?
Perhaps this one?

I hate it.

It was moderately funny the first year they did it. But it's become nothing but an annoyance now, with everybody and their little sister cow running around talking like pirates, wearing pirate costumes, and generally being silly idiots >_<

If you see a really fat boarder coming over the stern rail don't forget to yell "Avast behind!"
