Me FAVORITE holiday!!!!!
Time to trot out the ol' slops and don the pirate garb!
Now to practice me pirate banter...
Look sharp, lads!
Why is the rum gone?
I'll keelhaul ye fer that!
Blast yer scuppers, ye barnacle-bitten land-lubber!
Say yer prayers, varmint. Dead rabbits tell no tales...
(thanks to Seagoin' Sam, "the bloodthirstiest, shoot-em-firstiest, doggone worstiest buccanneer as ever sailed the Spanish main ...")
More starch in the sheets!
Batten down the hatches!
Man the bowspritz!
Stow the mizzenmast!
Jibe the jib-boom!
Hoist the mains’l and lower the catters’l!
Pipe the starb’rd hatch to leeward!
Trim the scuppers on the port poop-deck!
Sliver in me finger... uh... deliver me lumber... uh... Let's see... oh yes!...
Shiver me timbers!
...and some of my favorite Pirate movie quotes:
"Once they find out you've gone soft, then it's nothing but work, work, work..."
"It does strain credulity at that..."
"I'm disinclined to acquiesce to your request....Means NO. "
"I LOVE this! AAAAAAAHHH!!!!" [best if shouted amidst the clamor of cannonfire...]
And of course...
"Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of...Ma's old-fashioned cider! Ma's old-fashioned cider!"
