Today is Pirate's Day

While doing my daily dropping (ECs) LOL, I found out that today is

Pirate's Day. I have no idea where that came from. But
in case you think I have no sense of humor, I thought I'd add this

'test' so you can find out if you are a pirate.

You Are 75% Pirate

Shiver me timbers! You be a tried an' true buccanneer.

Yer likely the captain - shoutin' orders to scrub the deck or walk the plank.

If anyone questions yer shipmate skills, ye'll jus' crush the'r barnacles!

Ye have been flying the Jolly Roger fer a long time. So long that you likely be havin' a bad case o' scurvy.

Blast me mattie, it’s Talk Like a Pirate Weekend with nary a land lubber on the horizon until the Monday tide.

Around Tampa Bay thered been pirates is these parts since the days of pirates in the Caribbean. And we had the Civil War blockade runners and later the moonshiners hide their stills here and slipped by in silent boats at night.

And I see ye be a pirate me hearty. Hoist a grog in their memory and for your own spirit too.

Talk Like a Pirate Day TLAPD

Darn I missed it!! I remember the first time I discovered there was such a thing as a Pirate's Day...We were driving through Scotland and listening to the radio one morning and there was an interview with someone who was in charge of starting the whole Pirates Day was amazingly interesting:-) That was 4 years ago, so I guess its catching on, lol

Ooops, I'm just 30%:
"Ahoy matey! Ye can think o' yerself as a swashbuckler in trainin'.
If ye study hard an 'do what the captain tells ye, ye may be gettin' part o' the booty.
Get to work on yer pillagin', swordfightin', an' drinkin'.
Ye dasn't want to end up in Davy Jones' locker, so make sure ye pipe down when the captain be around."
