Today be National Talk Like a Pirate Day matey, and every damn year I forgets.  To make up fer lost time today there will be nothing but talk of booty, scalawags, scurvy and my wooden leg.  I found this website which seems to have an English-to-Pirate translator.  Here are some phrases that I translated:

Can I get a medium coffee?  =  “Can I get a medium coffee? ”

I can’t belive how high gas prices are! = “I can’t belive how high gas prices are!”

Don’t you think that Sarah Palin is underqualified for government office? = Don’t you think that Sarah Palin is underqualified for government office?

First you’ve gotta do the truffle-shuffle. = “First you’ve gotta do t’ truffle-shuffle. ”

So evidently pirates talk just like us.  Lame.  They could have at least changed “coffee” to “grog” or “Sarah Palin” to “land lubber who appeals to Wall Mart shoppers.”

Avast.
