With Talk-Like-A-Pirate-Day just around the corner, I decided to visit the official website, and see what's up. After some amount of surfing (yarr, sailin?), I found that Portland, Oregon (my home town) is having their 3rd Annual Pirate Festival:
Dang, I wish I still lived close enough to go, because you know I'd be all piratey and stuff! Yarr, and shiver-me-timbers! Maybe one of me mates will attend, and keep their shifty eyes peeled for me. Avast!
Then again, maybe I'll just order a commemorative T-Shirt. Whoa, maroon is a fairly... unseemly color for a pirate, isn't it? Wouldn't be good to be a marooned Pirate wearing a maroon commemorative T-shirt! I mean, look at the guy modeling the T-shirt: he's about the furthest from being a pirate as I've ever seen! In fact, he's so far from being a pirate, he's actually an Opposite Pirate!!
Guess I wont be getting the shirt either. (ye scurvy bilge rats!)
