Yo Ho Me Harties,
Today, the 19th of September has been for the last several years been designated as Talk Like A Pyrate Day. Therefore, towit, and hencforth rightly, ye scruvy sandcrabs that think ye may be up for a challenge, spend today talking like the Olde Pyrate here. It be not hard as there only be a few letters in the Pyrate alphabet. THere be Aye, Arrrr and the occassional Aaaaa (as in the Fonz). So attnd to your nearest drinking establishment and have the serving wench pour a flagon of Captain Morgan Spice and hoist one to Talk Like A Pyrate Day. And as an aside, remember that this Olde Pyartes, ship, the USS John Young (DD-973) has been recognized as the official ship of Talk Like A Pyrate Day, which should tell you something of the company the Olde Pyrate kept back in the days when ships were steel, men were iron, and sheep were very afraid.
