Ahoy!

Greetings, ye sons and daughters of the bilge.

Today, for those less enlightened souls, is the world-famous Talk Like a Pirate Day and so we are celebrating here – on The Macaronis AND on the Speak Its Name Chat Group with a myriad of piratey based fun.

That doesn’t necessarily mean we will be keel-hauling sailors, painting everyone blue as we cross the equator and laughing uproariously as we push people off planks into sharks or crocodiles mouths, but we will be doing pirate based activities.

After all, there’s nothing more manly than striding about barechested with a cat-o’ nine-tails and skin tight breeches, right? ARRRR!!!!

So to kick off matters here – We presents ye worthless scum with a list of every pirate (or Age of Sail) book (which often includes the damn Good Guys, BLAST THEIR INNARDS!!!) as well as the noblemen of the sea (vis-a-vis us pirates). There will be Rears and Vices abounding, and not a sign of avast behind. I has to say I’m a little worried where this swabbie keeps his tackle. He has the canonballs, it’s clear, but the muzzle seems to be… missing?

We of the crew Speak Its Name bear no responsibility if there’s no guttin’ and settin’ people’s ships on fire in these books. One thing we’ll guarantee is there’s ships. And manly glances across a crowded deck. And tight muscled…Arrrr.

So, if, like Polly, you want a cracker.  Check out this list of Chum-Bucketing goodness. Some of them is in parchment, some of them is in magic box mode, some of them is just pictures. But they are all full of sailor lovin’ goodness. Enjoy!
