Avast, ye scurvy dogs!

As randallt so astutely pointed out, today is international talk like a pirate day. Yes it is! If you fancy yourself a bit of a pirate talk aficionado, feel free to pirate it up in your posts and comments. If you'd like a little help, look under "Input format" below the text entry box for the "Pirate filter." This is the one time a year it's fully socially acceptable to stake out Republican booty for conquest!


The Ship of State, She Be Ours!

Or, as savvy signators once said:

We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Pirate Joke

After a tireless search of the internets, I have found a good pirate joke. Old, but good.

A pirate strolls into his favorite bar and the bartender says, "Whoa, dude, what happened to you?"
The pirate says, "What do you mean?"
The bartender says, "Well, for starters, you never used to have a peg leg."
"Oh, that," replies the pirate. "Well, you see, we had a sea battle and a cannon ball blew off my leg. But the ship's surgeon fixed me up with this peg leg and I'm as good as new."
"Well, what about the hook?" asks the barkeep.
"We had another sea battle and some guy lopped off my hand," the pirate explains, "but the ship's surgeon fixed me up with this hook and now I'm as good as new!"
"What about the eye patch?" asks the bartender.
"One day I was on the top mast keeping watch," says the pirate, "when an albatross flew over and pooped in my eye."
The bartender is incredulous. "You mean to tell me that bird poop will put out your eye?"
"Well," the pirate explained, "this happened shortly after I got the hook."

CountryCrats - my thoughts, my blog.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

I had already given you 5 stars, added it to my favorites and blogged it. :) I would rate you again if I could. You know those durned Taylor supporters are screwing with the numbers.
