Today is the international Talk like a Pirate Day. Time to break out your best pirate lingo, jokes, and gear if you really want to get into it. Its like halloween is here early with this day.
Show off your pirate lingo skills at work and later on in the day with Happy Hour. (Vocab words courtesy of wikihow.com)
- Ahoy! and Aye! – “Hello!”
- And ye may lay to that! – “You betcha!”
- Arrr! – This is often confused with “arrrrgh,” which is, of course, the sound you make when you sit on a belaying pin. “Arrrr!”, like “Aloha,” means variously, “yes,” “I agree,” “I’m happy,” “I’m enjoying this beer,” “My team is going to win it all,” “I saw that television show, it sucked!” and “That was a clever remark you or I just made.” And those are just a few of the myriad possibilities of Arrr!
- Booty – Anything of value a pirate can plunder
Don’t forget your trusty parrot and eyepatch!
