Something that went unrecorded on this forum was yesterdays "Talk Like A Pirate Day", 19 September.
http://www.yarr.org.uk/
Being a salty old seadog with piratical pretensions we mustered the crew together to celebrate the day! My God we sunk a few rum snifters!!!

Thats Big Annie, our very own treasure chest! As you can see from the picture, she has sadly lost her teeth. She entered a "pick up a barrel of rum in your mouth" competition, and whilst she won it, her teeth were the losers!
We've promised to buy her a new set when we next land some treasure.

The pictures show myself, Scurvy Jack, Blind (Drunk) Pugh, Barnacle Bill, Bob the Bosun, and others from our party.

As someone once said theres nothing a pirate likes better than rum, sodomy & the lash, although we leave out number 2 whilst we have the likes of Big Annie to keep us happy.

p.s. Given that you do not speak 'American' you are probably not aware of the slang usage of the word 'Booty' on this side of the pond. Hint, it has nothing to do with the trunk of a car; as I understand the word BOOT in the UK is used differently. LOL

Thanks for the translation infoshare - we're sometimes divided by a common langauge!
As you rightly say the boot is the rear of the car where luggage is stored, or indeed it could refer to a piece of footwear.
You Americans seem to like changing the real meaning of our English language, or indeed making up new words or phrases, although its a very adaptable language.

Pirate jokes:

"How much did your ear-rings cost Jack?"
"A buccaneer".

To err is human
To aar is pirate

As you say Meerkat, just a coincidence. I refute your allegation that I show disdain for the UK, what you are getting confused with is the difference between seeing things through rose-tinted glasses, as you are, and telling it like it is as I do!
I do agree with you however about G&T, he does appear to suffer from a gigantic inferiority complex and as is often the case with such people he defensively over-reacts, in his case its with his rabid anti-Brit rants! Underneath he's probably a nice guy, as soft as a little pussy cat who wouldn't say boo to a goose!

Well i'll believe you (though many wouldn't!!)

Rose tinted glasses! I like that. I may be patriotic but i don't view this country through rose tinted glasses at all. I hold the view that the government are vermin, and have consistently betrayed the interests people of this country. At least i'm trying to do my bit and make things better by joining various pressure groups, rather than scurrying off elsewhere at the first chance. Some of what you say is right, but sometimes you really go over the top, where are all of these mentally ill people around London you metion. I see the odd one or two, and i've seen people like this wherever i've been around the world. Corruption and crime existes everywhere. The grass isn't always greener you know.

Maybe GT is a pussy cat, but he needs to get out a bit more i think:rolleyes:. My opinion he has been spurned by an English lover.

Anyway, back to pirates, when is your next pirate meeting - i may come along.......

Maybe GT is a pussy cat, but he needs to get out a bit more i think:rolleyes:. My opinion he has been spurned by an English lover.You're probably right - male or female I wonder?


Anyway, back to pirates, when is your next pirate meeting - i may come along.......There'll be a gathering of the motley crew at the Captain Kidd in November, I'll give the date nearer the time, but you've got to come in full pirate costume with a name approved beforehand.

The Captain Kidd pub was named after a Scottish colonial ship-http://www.visiteastlondon.co.uk/images/Miscellaneous/Pubs%20and%20food/historic-pub.jpgowner who became a privateer (to hunt and capture pirates) and later turned to piracy himself; he was arrested, convicted and hanged at Wapping on May 23 1701. During his execution the rope broke; he was hanged on the second attempt. His body remained on the gallows until it had been washed by three tides; it was then tarred (for preservation) and placed in gibbets for public display at Tilbury Point in Essex to discourage other pirates. The 17th Century building was originally a warehouse used by tradesmen making boats, repairing sails and working on the river.

Due to the nautical theme of this thread i thought i would post a few pictures i took of the HMS Victory last year which new resides down in Portsmouth http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hms_victory. I've always been interested in maritime history, maybe because my father was in the navy, or maybe just because i come from an island.

I've just noticed most of the pictures have't uploaded again.....very annoying - but i think that the figure on the front of the ship (bottom left) looks a bit like you captain. Anyway, as mine won't come through here are a few from Wikepedia.

Ahoy there me ol' shipmates! If you'd like to sail the Spanish main to find treasure then come along to the Captain Kidd pub next month & sign up (after a few large rum snifters and a few thick slabs of bread & dripping to soak it up!), those still standing at closing time will qualify!

Pirate garb is compulsory, a parrot is optional, and a peg-leg is just taking the p**s!

All conversations will be conducted in pirate-talk with accents to match. Females, especially buxom ones, most welcome.

Great pics Meerkat of a great ship, they really make me feel like setting sail immediately!

The Captain Kidd pub details are in this link: http://www.fullpint.com/fullpint/showpub.php?pubid=152

The date is looking like Friday 30 November, (tbc), from around 5pm onwards, that'll give us around 6 hours worth of drinking time - time to sink a few large rum snifters and a few flagons of ale!! And not forgetting the slabs of bread covered in beef dripping to soak it all up!!

As I said you'll need a pirate outfit, an authentic sounding accent, and a name.
We've already got a Scurvy Jack, Blind Pugh, Barancle Bill, Bob the Bosun, Big Annie, Poop Deck Charlie, Port Hole Pete, Jack the Lad, Black Jake, Crows Nest Sam, etc.
You've got to get an acceptable name to join the crew, something that denotes a bit about you as a person. Give it some thought.

It sounds as though you're been in the wars Brianac. I wish you a speedy recovery.

A word of warning, watch out for those barnacles, especially around the eyes and nether regions - can be nasty and difficult to get rid of once they've become attached. Barnacle Bill was driven mad with them a few months ago. It took us three painful days to rid him of them - we had to lash him to the deck and feed him a bottle of rum every three hours to dull the pain! How he screamed, at night he was like a wailing banshee. He's ok now although he walks with a bit of a bow-legged gait - small price to pay for the being cured of the affliction so he says.

I am not sure what role the barrel plays either: but "being Carol in the barrel" seems a lot less painfull than being a "Nancy in a nutshell". I think Capn B was kidding about the Barrel stuff; but here again - I not sure.

As for pirate talk, many just do it on "Talk Like A Pirate Day" whereas for some of us its a way of life. It's not just the language, its the delivery, the accent, and the attitude.
The advice I would give any aspiring pirate would be THINK ROBERT NEWTON, forget Depp.
Newton was born in Shaftesbury, Dorset so would have known the West Country accent that so often typifies the pirate accent heard today.

Robert Newton

Biography by Hal Erickson

Professionally, British actor Robert Newton (http://wm05.allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll?p=avg&sql=B52468) was two people: The wry, sensitive, often subtle performer seen in such plays as Noel Coward (http://wm05.allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll?p=avg&sql=B52468)'s Private Lives and such films as This Happy Breed (http://wm05.allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll?p=avg&sql=A113374) (1944), and the eye-rolling, chop-licking ham in such roles as Bill Sykes in Oliver Twist (http://wm05.allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll?p=avg&sql=A104656) (1948) and Long John Silver (arr! arr!) in Treasure Island (http://wm05.allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll?p=avg&sql=A50862) (1950).

Born into a gifted family — his mother was a writer, his father and his siblings painters — Newton made his professional debut when he was 15 with the British Repertory Company. Before he was 25, Newton had toured the world as an actor and stage manager, making his Broadway bow when he replaced Laurence Olivier (http://wm05.allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll?p=avg&sql=B105057) in Private Lives.

There was little of Olivier (http://wm05.allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll?p=avg&sql=EOlivier) (except perhaps the older Olivier (http://wm05.allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll?p=avg&sql=EOlivier)) in most of Newton's movie roles; despite his wide actor's range, he seemed happiest tearing a passion to tatters in such films as Jamaica Inn (http://wm05.allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll?p=avg&sql=A25773) (1939), Blackbeard the Pirate (http://wm05.allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll?p=avg&sql=A5969) (1952) and The Beachcomber (http://wm05.allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll?p=avg&sql=A84554) (1954).

Ripe though his acting could be, it was clear Newton knew his audience. From 1947 through 1951 he was one of Britain's top ten moneymaking film stars, so who were the critics to tell him what to do? Newton's final film role was the dogged Inspector Fix in the blockbuster Around the World in 80 Days (http://wm05.allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll?p=avg&sql=A2884) (1956). Less than one month after completing Around the World in 80 Days (http://wm05.allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll?p=avg&sql=A2884), Robert Newton (http://wm05.allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll?p=avg&sql=B52468) died of a heart attack in the arms of his wife.

It was a good event plenty of wine women & song! And many, many large rum snifters! Just about recovered.
Big Annie fronted up to Chesty Carol, and we thought for a moment there might be a bust up but it all ended peacefully. What a beautiful pair!
The only real bit of trouble was a fight between two Long John Silvers, who argued over a missing stuffed parrot. One accused the other of taking it off his shoulder. Due to the fact they each only had one leg (the other being strapped up behind their backs), the "fight" was more of a hopping contest. Eventually the missing parrot turned up and peace was restored.
Blind Pugh, as is his custom, got blind drunk.

He does a bit - does he do the dance too?????

By the way, behind the lobster - is that a man in drag?

His real name is Colin, but his pirate name is Jack Sparrow. You can always tell when he's had a few large rum snifters, as he puts on this perpetual grin! He dances but not like Ricky, more like a constipated John Travolta with a strangulated hernia.

Yes that is a man in drag, its Porthole Pete, who given any opportunity, will jump into female attire! He calls himself Madame Lucille but we won't go there .....

Too many rum snifters you may end up waking next to Madame Lucille rather than big Annie or Chesty Carol:D.

What a nightmare that would be!! :)
I think I prefer the warm charms of Chesty Carol or big Annie, at least you've got somewhere soft to lay your head!

How would you say "AAAAaaarrrggrhhh" in Somali?

arrgh matey, you'll have to sail to columbus or minneapolis to answer that tharrr question.

that's where the somalis live in the usa.

they were brought to the states as refugees and were inserted there by uncle sam in the mid-1990's.

as both of those cities have solid, stable economies, overall they seem to be doing fine.

just a little somali fun-factoid!
