‘Tis t’ annual international talk like a pirate day here at Floppin’ Aces- somewhat o’ a tradition, I suppose.[youtube]http://youtu.be/rTL2GSEuQTA[/youtube]
This be an open thread for ye band o’ scurvy scallywags t’ link t’ tales that interest you; and discuss whatever t’ hell ye want. T’ only request be that ye form yer sentences in piratese; or at t’ least, end some sentences in at least one hearty “aaar!”
How do you know if you are a Pirate? You don’t, you just AAARRRRRGH!
A former fetus, the “wordsmith from nantucket” was born in Phoenix, Arizona in 1968. Adopted at birth, wordsmith grew up a military brat. He achieved his B.A. in English from the University of California, Los Angeles (graduating in the top 97% of his class), where he also competed rings for the UCLA mens gymnastics team. The events of 9/11 woke him from his political slumber and malaise. Currently a personal trainer and gymnastics coach.
The wordsmith has never been to Nantucket.
New pirate TV show: Arrrrh you smarter than a fifth grader?
What’s a pirate’s favorite letter of the alphabet?
You’d think it was ”R.”
But it’s the “C.”
(A joke from a 6-year old neighbor.)
T’be arr not t’be: that be the question
Whether ’tis nobler in ‘t mind t’suffer
Them slings an’ arrows of outrrageous fartune,
Arr te tak up arms against a sea o’ troubles,
An’ by opposin’ end ’em? T’die, t’sleep,
No more; and by a sleep t’say we end
‘At heart-ache and a thousand natural shocks
Thaat flesh is heirr to, ’tis a consummation
Devoutly t’be whish’d. T’die, t’sleep,
T’sleep; perchance t’dream, aye, thar’s the rub…
if you speak like a pirate at krispy creme, they will give you a free donut. if you dress up like a pirate, they will give you a box of donuts.

Arrrh! light is the love of a pirate,
That’s what the ladies sayee –
Lightly he goes a wooing,
Lightly he sails awayee.
In love and war we always are
As fair as fair can be,
And a pirate boy is the ladies’ joy
In Jamaica by the Sea.

Shiver me timbers, the FED’s goin’ to continue buyin’ up state and mortgage bonds to keep down long-term interest rates. But there be great dangers in the longer term keepin’ them rates low. Arrrh! A market that lives by QE, will die by QE! The monetary policy of the FED has bin creatin’ them soap bubbles in the stock markets and housing markets, and also created a bubble in them government bonds. Good luck gettin’ out of that one easily! Them rates should ‘ave never come down so low. The pain should ‘ave bin dealt with in 2008, or ever afore that.
