Yarr! It Be Me Captain Joaquin Gorrión!

Captain Joaquin Gorrión is back!  This morning I exchanged the following messages with him on my Droid phone.  His answers are in red and my questions are in black.

Arrrrrre you there, matey?  It is I Captain Joaquin Gorrión!

Q: Really, we're doing this again on the six month anniversary of International Talk like a Pirate Day?  OK.  

A: You rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr right, matey.

Q: Now that we have gotten the fact that pirates like to roll their Rs even when typing to someone else out of the way, could you tell me what you have been up to for the last six months?  Last time you hijacked my blogger account you had just escaped from a Mexican jail and were trying to find your way back to the high seas, right?

A: I went to Singapore and am tapping out this Q and A session on a Chinese knock off of an iPhone 5 which I liberated from a shop full of counterfeit goods.

Q: I see. So, have you ever met "Cap'n Slappy" and "Ol' Chumbucket" the two guys who invented International Talk like a Pirate Day?

A: You would have to ask them.  My memory is as addled by rum as my liver has been abused by it.

Q: Gotcha.  Well, good luck to you with the whole pirating thing.  I have stuff to do myself.  

A: Until next time, limey.

A: Hey, I'm only part English.
