Haaa-aa-aar, blogmates, ahoy there! Pirate stuff here!

Yes, it be Talk Like A Pirate Day again, me hearties, an' if I hadn't had it in my diary already me old messmate Joe (now livin' so far from the sea it must hurt 'im baaad) reminded me on his blog.

Since the last TLAPD yer ol' blogger chum Rob 'as discovered as 'ow 'e 'as a captured French privateer as an ancestor. OK, so mebbe an uncaptured one might have bin an improvement but then yer ol' chum would never 'ave bin born to 'is Dorset parents. Which would 'a' bin saaad. Aye it would. Any'ow, beggars can't be choosers, an' neither can pirates. But per'aps we should be spikking in ze cod French accents instead of ze Robert Newton piratical ones, n'est-ce pas? Per'aps zere is a French equivalent of ze piratical talking? J'sais pas. Alors.

Strange but true, blogmates, I was gonna post a link to this very piece on pirates even before I noticed the date. So here it is, a piece on 'ow pirates be not always the bad guys, and 'ow we were a force for social change, an' sometimes still are. Course, there be plenty o' the baaad kind runnin' around causin' mayhem: some of 'em Somali, some flyin' the blue an' white o' the IDF an' murderin' folk on the open sea. To Davy Jones wi' the whole evil crew of 'em, I say. But Master Hari 'as 'imself a point, an' some o' the "pirates" are more what ye might call "environmental activists". Mebbe they should get theyselves a Livery Company up in Lunnon Town, like the Environmental Cleaners. Mebbe that's what we pirates need, a Worshipful Company Of Pirates. Mind ye, the International Bankers and the Management Consultants would prob'ly 'ave sump'n t' say about that development: musclin' in on their pitch, as 'twere.
