Why be everyone talkin' crazy this day?
Talk Like a Pirate Day it be!
Okay . . . but . . . why are all these pirates so grumpy?
WE JUST ARRRRRRRRRRE!
That is my favorite joke ever (because I'm a huge dork). However, my favorite presentation of a pirate joke ever was when my friend and I were riding in a full Sears Tower elevator and some guy shouted out, "How much did it cost the pirate to get his ears pierced? Buck-an-ear!" (Why are these pirates so random?)
As for this holiday, I appreciate it, but remember not to get carried away. In related news, I would like to take this opportunity to say in defense of the state of Oregon that this pirate family you saw on Wife Swap—blimey! We think they're nutters too.
