Last year we celebrated the first-ever International NEVER Talk like a Pirate Day!
We had tremendous success in casting away all things piratey.
We had very few incidents of scurvy.
We do not believe in pirating-for-profit.
We do not speak in a pirate’s tongue or even a fishy brogue.
We have banned all eye patches, mandanans, steel-hook hands, lobster-claw arms, peg-legs and parrots from this blog today.
We still allow silly hats.
Today, this blog is your safe harbor against any and all “Arrghs!” and “Ahoy Mateys!” that will inundate otherwise good blogs.
If you still feel the need to write and talk silly, we urge you to URB instead.
