Avast, Me Hearties!


Begad! Snatch that mutinous landlubber!

Today be International Talk Like a Pirate Day!

This day, not only do me mark th' passage 'o another year 'o me life, but this day be also international speak like a scurvy pirate day. Either way, a scowl 'n an arrrrr be in order. If ye’d like to spy wit' ye eye ye moniker translated into a scurvy pirate moniker, ye can take 'tis quiz. I guarantee it be pretty silly, but I like me moniker fer this day!

After ye take th' quiz, then be tellin' me what ye moniker be if ye like, me bucko!

Mad Mary Flint

Shiver me timbers!


  1. That was fun! Here is what my quiz said. (My pirate name is not as cool as yours.)

    Captain Jenny Roberts

    Even though there's no legal rank on a pirate ship, everyone recognizes you're the one in charge. Two things complete your pirate persona: style and swagger. Maybe a little too much swagger sometimes -- but who really cares? Arr!

  2. Tina-thanks so much for taking the quiz and posting your name! "Captain" is very impressive!

    I should add that mine, for Mad Mary Flint said:

    Every pirate is a little bit crazy. You, though, are more than just a little bit. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!

    And Tina-"style and swagger" are very, very cool:)

  3. Ahoy there, Valerie! Raising my (coffee)grog in a birthday toast to you, lassie ... Cheers :)

  4. Where's the rum?!?

    Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day!

  5. Ahoy Joanne, and thank ye!! Glad to call ye me friend!

    Rum, by all means! It's on me today, Lisa! Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day to you too!

  6. Happy birthday my friend! Arggghhh!! We have a lot of pirate talk going on around here daily. It's something Deaglan's really into these days - there's a couple of pirate shows on the kids network.

    Hope your visit with your mother was nice!

  7. Thanks Kim! Good birthday, and good visit, and I like my pirate name-I may just use it from now on:)

  8. I wanted to add that my MIL loves doing pirate impressions so she especially happy for this news. lol.

  9. That is so fun! I'd love to hear her:) Did she take the quiz, Tina?
