During my days as an undergraduate, I was involved in the sport of rowing. In order to get a jump on the competition, one of the other guys from the crew and I checked a boat out from the dockmaster at the boathouse before organized practices began. At least we tried to check out a boat when the dockmaster interrupted us with a hearty "Arr, yee be wantin' a boat do yee?"
The eye patch let me know that the dockmaster
took his pirate talk seriously
"Hmm, yes?" the rower I was with replied with a confused look on his face.
"It be International Talk Like a Pirate Day, it is" replied the dockmaster who had evidently been spending too much time at the boathouse.
"OK, well we just want to check out a pair to row in the marina for about an ho-"
A little waving of a plastic saber from the crazed dockmaster cut off my partner and gave me the idea that this was not going to be settled in regular English. "We been needin' a schiff for my matey and I to paddle 'round these waters for about a one and a half turns of the hourglass" I offered. A moment later we made our marks in the log book and were in possession of a boat to row.
Anyway, in honor of today being International Talk Like a Pirate Day I present the breakfast of pirates, which comes from here:
Man the crow's nest!
Let down those top sails!
Fry the Jolly Roger!
