Ba-dumpa diddly-dum. diddly-dum, ba-dumpa-dumpa-dumpa-dumpa diddly-dum, diddly-dum, ba-dumpa-dumpa-dumpa-dumpa...(*)

(If ye be havin' trouble wi' gettin' ter grips wi' the title, try here.)

Haaaar! Ahoy blogmates! Today be international "Talk Like A Pirate" Day, when bloggers all round the globe, at sea or on land, do affect strange v'ices an' indulge in fantastical transliterations so they can make 'emselves understood by landlubbery scallywags who think a coral reef be a kind o' bookmaker's hitch, as well as by their shipmates. This be the day when our blogs all take on a most piratical cast, whether or not we do resemble Johnny Depp, or Kiera Knightley, or even Cthulhu-cheeked Davy Jones himself.

Here be the British Cap'n's Cabin o' the whole enterprise.

Afore me head be cavin' in wi' the strain o' keepin' up me piratical patter, I'll post a picture o' a splendid sailin' type who was a messmate o' mine many years back. Amazin' the folk who bunk along o' ye when your brother be organisin' o' a folk festival. This, then, be Stan Hugill, fomerly shantyman on the last British commercial sailing ship, the Garthpool. Here be 'is Wikipedia entry.

Here be Stan lookin' mightily alike ter when he berthed alongside o' me:




And here be a younger and even more piratical-lookin' Stan:

In case ye can't read what it says beneath that fine picture, it be Frenchified talk and do say "Stan Hugill étarquant une manoeuvre à bord du shooner Leading Light en 1933". Haaar.

Shouldn't that be

Baah... Diddly-dum, diddly-dum [etc]
?

(It's almost dislodged "Snape. Snape. Severus Snape." from my head. But not quite.)

Ta for the book meme; I did it some time ago, but some of the details will have changed. I'll try doing it from scratch & see how similar the results end up being.

Ah. I did the title from memory (and that's definitely how I remember it) and never checked again after finding and linking the sound file. But you be right.Haaar.

I missed The Day, but thought you'd like this, if I can get an image to stick here (LJ is so much easier...)
