Today be Talk Like a Pirate Day! Ye landlubbers best be barking the lingo, lest ye be run through!

To be celebrating, I be running the Blog Like A Pirate Blosxom Plugin for this day. Don’t get used to it, ye scurvy dogs!

Update: I added a few custom “pirate speak” mappings to the plugin. Bonus points to anyone who notices them.

    I already was in the pirate-mood. I just watched pirates of the caribean on dvd…
    Shiver me timbers… immediately Tom Waits popped in my head:
    And the fog’s liftin’
    And the sand’s shiftin’
    I’m driftin’ on out
    Ol’ Captain Ahab
    He ain’t got nothin’ on me
    So come and swallow me, follow me
    I’m trav’lin’ alone
    Blue water’s my daughter
    ‘n I’m gonna skip like a stone
