Here's a cute animated way to learn pirate-speak.
Courtesy of the International Talk Like a Pirate Day web site, these are the top ten pickup lines for pirates.
- Avast, me proud beauty! Wanna know why my Roger is so Jolly?
- Have ya ever met a man with a real yardarm?
- Come on up and see me urchins.
- Yes, that is a hornpipe in my pocket and I am happy to see you.
- I'd love to drop anchor in your lagoon.
- Pardon me, but would ya mind if I fired me cannon through your porthole?
- How'd you like to scrape the barnacles off of me rudder?
- Ya know, darlin’, I’m 97 percent chum free.
- Well blow me down?
And the number one pickup line for use on International Talk Like a Pirate Day is...
- Prepare to be boarded.
