    I suspect the countless people who have been held by pirates off the Eadt Africa coast and the relatives of those who’ve lost their lives won’t find “Talk Like A Pirate” day funny at all. 😐

    Of course, Pirates never did speak with a West Country accent.

    Is that, like, knowledge or is it, like, just your opinion?

    HERESY!
    Blackbeard almost certainly had a bristol accent (being a bristolian).

    I’m afraid, camo16, my friend, it’s knowledge. πŸ™

    Unless you believe that Blackbeard is the only pirate there ever was.

    So the average pirate really sounded like [insert name of popular entertainment figure here]?

    Here on the Isle of Wight, every day is Talk Like A Pirate day.

    Of course we don’t know how anyone sounded back in the 18th century, including people from Bristol.

    I always find it strange that pirates are now cool and fun, despite actually being murderous gangsters on boats in reality.

    Well, the ones from the west country did. Durr.

    Lots of historical things are cool and interesting, e.g. Romans, Crusades, Mayans, etc. even though they were no doubt pretty brutal and unpleasant times.

    Do our kids dress up as crusaders at parties, and run around killing arabs? I hope not.

    Well, Prince Harry digs the Nazi look at parties… in the spirit of japes and jolly good fun.

    No aaaaaarrrrr-gument from me!

    despite actually being murderous gangsters on boats in reality.

    Also it was actually pretty rare for crews to be harmed, once they’d surrendered. Often they were given the smallest boat in the pirate fleet and sent on their way.

    Those days were violent times everywhere, I don’t think pirates were any better or worse than anyone else.

    Also pirate ships were run as a democracy, in decidedly un-democratic times!

    I hope not too. Mine all dress up as Cowboys and run around killing Red Indians Native Americans, which of course is far more wholesome.

    Wow, that’s old fashioned.. even when I was a little kid 30 years ago in infants’ school we had lessons about cowboys and indians and how the indians weren’t actually baddies. We still played the games, but we had cowboys and indians on both sides. Cops and robbers was more popular though, easier moral territory πŸ™‚
