National Talk Like A Pirate Day

In honor of National Talk Like A Pirate Day today, I am going to share my favorite pirate joke. It sounds best spoken, but this will have to do:

"A pirate walks into a bar. He's got this giant wooden steering wheel coming right out of the crotch of his pants.

Everyone tries to be polite, but finally the barkeep has to ask: "What IS that thing, man?"

Pirate looks down and says, "Arrgh. I donno matey, but it's drivin' me nuts."

And how perfect is it that there was a whole blessed CD of pirate songs that just came out?

"A Dying Sailor To His Shipmates" - Bono

That pirate photo is definitely the exact logo of my elementary and junior high schools that I went to.

Callie - the Minnesota Vikings logo is the exact same as my high school and I always do a double take if I see it emblazoned on a car or something - I'm like "Hey! They went to Lynbrook--no, waaiiiit...."
