The topic: Today is national “Talk Like A Pirate” day

My pirate name is:
Captain Anne Read
Even though there's no legal rank on a pirate ship, everyone recognizes you're the one in charge. Even through many pirates have a reputation for not being the brightest souls on earth, you defy the sterotypes. You've got taste and education. Arr!

Avast! A very fyne Pirate’s Day to you! Hope it was merry and full of grog.

A Pirate Factoid: Did Pirates really use peglegs? No. They would have hurt too much to wear for long….our mateys mostly used crutches.
(well, a bit depressing but true)

‘Nother one: Did Pirates wear earrings? Yes, but earrings were popular with other people, too.

Did they drink a lot of Grog? YES!! It was rum and water, without ice.

Bunghole: on a wooden cask on a ship. I had an Olde Auntie (crazy as a loon) who said children should be kept in a barrel and fed through the bunghole till they were 21.

I was Dirty Bess something or other - the pirate everyone wanted to throw overboard because I smelled (?), but I’m a rock (that would chip easily).  Alrighty then.  I mean, Arrrrrghhh!
