Having Fun on International Talk Like a Pirate Day

International Pirate Day with two dogs dressed like pirates on a raft

Bentley: “Shiver me timbers First Mate Pierre!  Guess what day it be.”
Pierre: “Uhhh, it’s Saturday.  Why are we dressed like this and what happened to my eye?  Should I be hysterical?”
Bentley: “Avast Matey!  It be Talk Like A Pirate Day!  It’s an international holiday and our friend Cap’n Speedy the House Bunny is having a big party over in the U.K.  We be supposed to talk like a gentleman o' fortune all tide.
Pierre: “Hmmm, talk like a pirate. Do we get to sail the high seas? How deep will the water be…matey?”
Bentley: “Aye, we will set sail in the deepest part of the bayou. We could jolly well reach depths of four to five feet! Hoist the flag!”
Me: “What is going on here and where are y’all going with that boat? Did you buy some catnip from the neighbor? Let me smell your breath.”
Bentley: “Argh Mom! We be pirates for International Talk Like A Pirate Day. No jesting, me lady.”
Pierre: “Hey Cap’n Bentley! How about some pirate humor? Do ye know where a one-legged pirate eats breakfast? IHOP!”
Bentley: “Yo-ho-ho!  Me once knew a pirate with a wooden leg named Wilson.”
Pierre: “What be the name of his other leg?”
Bentley: “Arrr…do ye be knowin’ how much booty the pirate paid to get his ears pierced?  A buck-an-ear!”
Pierre: “Blimey Cap’n Bentley!  Ye be talkin’ addled!”
Bentley: “Keep that up and ye be walkin’ the plank, ye scurvy dog!”
Pierre: “Don’t ye be makin’ me flog ye upside yer head! Ok, be holdin’ ye stomach for this one…which side of a parrot has the prettiest feathers?  Ye give up?  The outside!”
Bentley: “Bwaa-haa-haa!  Wait…What do ye call a pirate who can’t conduct a successful raid?  The pillage idiot!”
Pierre: “Gramma!  Did ye bake us pirates some cake?  Avast My lady, why ye be wearin’ a paper towel on ye head?”
Me: “Aye, my little pirates.  It seems I have a Bounty on me head!”
Bentley: “Mom, ye won’t be walkin’ the plank, but ye must walk the dog today!  Hey diddly dee…a pirate’s life for me!”
