Avast, me maties!

Fer all ye lubbers out thar, drink your grog smartly me beauties,  because tomorrow be Talk Like A Pirate Day.

Prepare to be boarded, cuz I be Cap’n!

Or at least, so saith the quiz: What’s Yer Inner Pirate?

Some men are born great, some achieve greatness and some slit the throats of any man that stands between them and the mantle of power. You never met a man you couldn’t eviscerate. Not that mindless violence is the only avenue open to you – but why take an avenue when you have complete freeway access? You are the definitive Man of Action. You are James Bond in a blousy shirt and drawstring-fly pants. Your swash was buckled long ago and you have never been so sure of anything in your life as in your ability to bend everyone to your will. You will call anyone out and cut off their head if they show any sign of taking you on or backing down. You cannot be saddled with tedious underlings, but if one of your lieutenants shows an overly developed sense of ambition he may find more suitable accommodations in Davy Jones’ locker. That is, of course, IF you notice him. You tend to be self-absorbed – a weakness that may keep you from seeing enemies where they are and imagining them where they are not.

    Thanks for the heads-up, matey! So far my pirate activities for the day have been foiled – I went to buy a bottle of rum and was denied and then I discovered I’d have to wait ’til tomorrow to get my hands on some Fringe booty. Now I know WHY – the universe is waiting for Talk Like a Pirate Day! In the meantime, guess which link I clicked first.
