Portland, OR (PRWEB) September 7, 2005
DonÂt be caught unawares, mate! September is on the horizon and in its wake will come National Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19th). Learn the lingo that separates illustrious pirates from mere lubbers. Learn ÂProper Pirate ParlanceÂ from Captain Angus Bogg of the worldÂs foremost buccaneer-rock band, CAPTAIN BOGG & SALTY.
As Captain Bogg explains, ÂUse of proper piratical vernacular will grant ye favor in the eyes of swaggerinÂ seadogs. Contrary wise, a steady tide of "yars", "arrrrs", and "avasts" without deviation will surely get ye an appointment with Davy Jones.Â
Even swarthy, seasoned swashbucklers get stuck in a linguistic rut once in awhile. So, for anyone searching for a bit of creativity for this yearÂs Talk Like a Pirate Day, Captain Bogg offers the following indispensable tips, which any scurvy dog may also discover by visiting http://www.eatalime.com:
