I am going to talk like a pirate and tell my favorite pirate joke.

A pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel down the front of his pants.

He walks up to the bar and says “give me a beer”. The bartender says ok and gives him a beer, noticing the wheel down the front of the buccaneers trousers.

After a while the bartender can’t stand it any and says to the pirate “hey bud, do you know you have a steering wheel down the front of your pants?”

The pirate says “y’argh, I do and it’s driving me nuts!”

I still remember when I was 7 years old, or so, and dressed up as a pirate for Halloween one year, in a costume my fantastic mother sewed for me, with her own loving hands.

I went to a house to request some candy and the nice woman there said, “You’re all alone! Where are your buccaneers?”

I told her, “They’re underneath my BUCKIN’ HAT!”

Last year I spoke like a pirate so much that I had a sore throat the next day. There is just something so fun about beginning every sentence with “Yargh!” and ending every sentence with ”...Says I!”

@gail: I searched “pirate day” and it was the last question but I could have also looked at Hossman’s profile since I remembered he asked it. I miss Hossman. :(

gailcalled's avatar

Me, too. He was funny, well-informed, clear and had gravitas.
