Ahoy me hearties, the call of the sea be strong! Seein' as it's Speak Like a Pirate Day, let's have all ye landlubbers, scallywags and sprogs tell us in a buccaneer's tongue who yer first mate be, and what sort of booty yer willin' to walk the plank for. Savvy?

a) Real pirates don't call people 'scallywags' or 'sprogs' in fact I believe sprogs is a synonym for child. Therefore it isn't very piratical at all.
b) Pirates don't walk the plank to earn booty. It's not some kind of competition, like Walk The Plank Idol hosted by Simon Cowell with a parrot on his shoulder and a truly awful pirate accent. Although I would watch that program I'm afraid it would be very inaccurate. Simon Cowell is a pirate only in the metaphorical sense of the word.
c) Why isn't there a Talk Like A Ninja day? That's what's wrong with this country. Everyone is so keen to be a pirate they forget those who do the real work. Those brave ninjas toiling away, and they won't be thanked you know. There will be no Christmas bonus for the ninjas this year. They won't get a medal from the queen. Damn you! Damn you all!
