Today is Talk Like a Pirate Day!
It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day! As you know, pirates are crucial to the preachings of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, so we thought we should mark this holiday here on Skepchick. You may notice things are a little different here todayâ€”it’s only temporary, I assure you. Blame Elyse.
Arr, tis a shame but the plugin ain’t be workin’. Yer gonna hafta post yer own pirate-ese.
I’m happy for you, and imma let ye finish, but Blackbeard is t’ best pirate o’ all time. O’ all time!
Why does tha Magic Pirate Talk hack (or whatever it is) change the word t h e into y e? Shouldn’t the word y o u or y o u r be the one that is changed into y e?
Pirate talk sure puts an interesting spin on otherwise serious conversations. I’ve just read the weight issue thread over that way yonder an’ all. Very different tub of vitttles indeed.
The plug-in is indeed working on some threads. Much fun.
@Andrew Nixon: I’m happy for you, and imma let you finish, but@SicPreFix: ‘s comment is one of the greatest comments of all time.
I be maintainin’ tha tradition at the public library. ‘Tis a fine day to be burning tha censors, says I!
Arrrrr, I be wearin’ me skull socks to rollarrrrr darrrrrrby tonight. That’s pirate-y, right?
Everyone knows how to make “Pirate” be yer language on Facebook, right?
“The” gets replaced with “ye” because “ye” is an archaic spelling of “the”. It goes back to when the letter “thorn” (which denoted a th sound) was removed from the english language. All uses of thorn were replaced with a “y”, but still pronounced “th”. So the was said “the”, but spelled “ye”. I imagine this confusing state of affairs is the reason why we now use a th for that purpose instead of y.
Ah, thankee kind sirrah.
I must be mis-speakin my pirateeze for Ye Olde Englishe, or summat ‘ike that then there t’ing, eh?
@James K: Arrr, ’tis a good ying yey did! Wiyout a doubt, ye situation would be yoroughly off-putting, by garrr. You yink yings are confusing in English now, yen yere was one letter doing yree jobs – consonant, vowel, and dipyong, not to mention two completely different sounds. Mind you, t’wouldn’t matter if you spelled it ‘you’ or ‘you’, ye meaning be ye same, yough the pronunciation differ.
It’s also Rosh Hashanah. So avast ye scurvy schmucks, already.
Arrr ! And what scurvy mate wrote a scurvy plugin what which won’t make us talk like pirates automagically-like?! Keelhaul him!?! Arrrr! ;-)
Actually, since TLAPD falls on Rosh Hashanah, the real greeting is: Arghhhhh Vey!
