Arrr! I be with you Pirate janbb! But, is that really your pirate name? Check here to find out!

I am Red Bess Flint today, according to that. Supposedly: “Passion is a big part of your life, which makes sense for a pirate. Like the rock flint, you’re hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you’re easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!”

Also, if you’re on Facebook, you can change your language to Pirate.

Come to Greenville, NC. It’s always talk like a pirate day, home of the ECU pirates.

Gosh you’d think every pirate that has ever lived was a cockney!! Any road up, here’s my offering ;
“I am a Somali pirate & I am truly a bad ass son of a bitch. So you’d better hope your government coughs up the ransom money. If not my colleagues & I will hack your heads off with a big knife!!

I’m not speaking like a pirate, I’m just frustrated at the moment
