I'd completely forgotten

That today is Talk Like a Pirate Day! Thanks to Heatherfeather for reminding me!

To honor Talk Like a Pirate Day, I want to first point out the importance of pirates in relation to Global Warming, as evidenced in the teachings of the church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Next, I will share some of my favorite Pirate-themed jokes (these could possibly be considered a little corny)

What's a Pirate's favorite school subject? Arrrrr-t
What's a Pirate's Favorite movie? St-arrrrrr W-arrrrrs
A Pirate's favorite garnish is P-arrrrrrrr-sley
His favorite duet? The C-arrrrr-penters.
His favorite Beatle? Paul McC-arrrrrrrrr-tney
What's a Pirate's favorite Comic strip? M-arrrrrrrr-maduke. Though some prefer G-arrrrrrr-field.
What's a Pirate's favorite snack? M-arrrrrrr-shmallows
Their favorite Whisky? Cutty S-arrrrrrrrrr-k
Their favorite actress? Emmy winner Patricia Arrrrrrr-quette.
Their favorite Actor? Arrrrrrrrr-senio Hall.

There are more to be had, send in your favorites!

I nominate the following for Official Pirate Day Song:

"The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything," by Veggie Tale productions. I proudly proclaim it a classic.

Well, Talk Like a Pirate Day. I think I will import this notion to my school. See if I can teach the fifth grade to talk like Pirates. I thought I had heard the last of your corner pirate jokes a couple of years ago. Thank you for keeping my faith alive!
