retarted...AND somewhat professionally done. Very nice. Though I can't help thinking that it was all inspired by that dick-wad Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean

rather humorous, but I bet it's even less useful to learn than ebonics, unless you're wanting to get into character for a Halloween party. I gotta admit, I never heard the phrase "Jim Lad", although it doesn't sound as cool as Scurvy Dog, and most of the other pirate phrases...

I've had to learn several accents for stage roles, and the tapes sound just like that. They did a good job. I couldn't help but Arrr along. (Reminded me of Down Periscope)

ARRR! I be pleased ta give ya Jim-Lad, our salty correspondant in the field. Jim-lad?

Thanks, Irate_Pirate. Talk like a Pirate Day originated in Albany, Oregon. It was created by John Baur and Mark Summers, long time friends. It originated as an inside joke, and grew very quickly among their large community of friends. Year after year the ripples of pirate speech were wider and wider until all hell broke loose. They began getting media coverage worldwide, largely because mainstream media doesn't have the balls to exit the politically correct box. Perhaps it spread because of the spirit of freedom that comes along with piracy, or because it's another excuse to throw a sick party where you can convince buxom wenches to prance around in corsets chugging rum. I suppose we'll never know. Back to you, Irate_Pirate.

YARRR, Jim-lad, that last part put me colors ta half mast! I know I plundered the captain's share o' the booty that night. I made my buxom wench saucy. This be Irate_Pirate, saying "I want more booty, and good night." ARRRRR!!!!
