Ahoy, Mateys! It Be The Best Holiday of the Year!

Aye, once again it be September the 19th; known to landlubbers everywhere as "Talk Like A Pirate Day"! The crew here at Fruitless Pursuits be a black-hearted, scurvy-ridden, piratical bunch if ever there were one, so of course we be big fans of it around these parts.

Talk Like A Pirate Day were started in the mid-90's by legendary pirates 'Ol Chumbucket and Cap'n Slappy, who be still running the official site to this very day! Over the years, it has continued to grow in popularity and scope, with rum-soaked, pirate-themed parties breaking out the world over!

So kick back, and pass the grog, and we'll all be drunker than a bottle of rum before lunch in honor of the day! I not really be one for posting lots o' pictures of things "just because"...but I will leave ye with the single best piratey thing EVER, after the jump. (because it's mildly NSFW)

I give ye Paul and Storm doing a song called "The Captain's Wife's Lament". It be one of my most favorite things ever. Make sure you watch some of the live versions that be on YouTube.

For the record, talking like a pirate be more difficult than it looks...
