Yarrrrrr! It's Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Ahoy Matey!  It's that time of year again...time to talk like a PIRATE!  So, ye scallywags and bilge rats, get of yer bums and learn to talk pirate!  Here arrrrrr a few basic pirate words to get you started, taken from the official Talk Like A Pirate Day website:
  • Ahoy! - "Hello!"
  • Avast! - Stop and give attention. It can be used in a sense of surprise, "Whoa! Get a load of that!" which today makes it more of a "Check it out" or "No way!" or "Get out!"
  • Aye! - "Why yes, I agree most heartily with everything you just said or did."
  • Aye aye! - "I'll get right on that sir, as soon as my break is over."
  • Arrr! - This one is often confused with arrrgh, which is of course the sound you make when you sit on a belaying pin. "Arrr!" can mean, variously, "yes," "I agree," "I'm happy," "I'm enjoying this soda," "My team is going to win it all," "I saw that television show, it sucked!" and "That was a clever remark you or I just made." And those are just a few of the myriad possibilities of Arrr!
Now get out there and start walkin' the plank, or whatever it is you scallywags do!  And remember, Talk Like A Pirate Day is purely for fun...we are in no way condoning the actions of real pirates. :)

For your enjoyment, here are a few pirate themed books we have here in the Library...
