Avast, ye scurvy bilge rats! It's National Talk Like a Pirate Day.
On this fine day, everyone can talk like a pirate all day long. ‘Tis a fine way t’be speakin’, and if ye’ disagree I may make ye’ walk the ol’ plank. If ye don't know what to say to landlubbers today, here's a few pick-up lines to use...
For scurvy lads...
Avast, me buxom beauty! Wanna know why my Roger is so Jolly?
Yes, that is a hornpipe in my pocket and I am happy to see you.
How'd you like to scrape the barnacles off of me rudder?
Ya know, darlin’, I’m 97 percent chum free.
Prepare to be boarded.
And for the lasses...
Come show me how ye bury yer treasure, lad!
So, tell me, why do they call ye, "Cap'n Feathersword?"
That's quite a cutlass ye got thar, what ye need is a good scabbard!
Aye, I guarantee ye, I've had a twenty percent decrease in me "lice ratio!"
I've crushed seventeen men's skulls between me thighs!
C'mon, lad, shiver me timbers!
So most of those are probably not work-appropriate, so be sure to try them out on people who have a sense of humor and not those cry-baby bores who'll certainly go whining to the HR department about you. Have fun.
