It is talk like a pirate day, September 19th.

Apparently, it’s also type like a pirate day. No one mentioned it to me. I’m only celebrating orally.

I have accepted the possibility that I might just be a stick in the mud.

@bodyhead, well now you’re really stuck… Fluther is previewing your quips as you type it in piratical.

The Live Preview text of the above was shown to me as:

@bodyhead, well now ye’re really stuck… Fluther be previewing yer quips as ye type it in piratical.

Rob, that’s hilarious. I didn’t even notice that was happening. Kudos, fluther moderators. I’m impressed.

There once was a site called Fluther.
It could really be compared to no other.
Both Andrew and Ben
Are spectacular men
I’d like to thank both of their mothers!

I am rather relieved it is only in preview. I thought the posted answers were in pirate speak. For some serious queries I was responding to, it felt a little wrong.

But if ‘tis only all in fun, like a bit ‘o song and a tot ‘o rum, then I’m all for it, matey. Here’s mud in yer eye and may yer course be straight and true.

ok, i think i just got my answer. i was in the middle of responding to a serious subject only to find my written words were not showing up as, well, serious. i was about to kiss fluther good-bye. i thought it was a sick virus.

i remember seeing a fluther question relative to this pirates day stuff, but just passed it up. heard a blurb of it on the news today and was like, yeah whatever.

no disrespect but, fluther, please turn this pirate stuff off.

@cc34 I have given up trying to proof my answers, because of the priate speak making me crazy.

All: Any typos? Blame the pirates!
