Todays is National Talk Like A Pirate Day, so we’re going to have lunch at Arrrrbys and go see Guarrrrdians of the Galaxy. We’ll also be irritating pretty much everybody else in the office. But those bilge-sucking scalawags will mostly be jealous that we can talk fluent Pirate, matey, which means that we have a real edge when it comes to chatting up the cheerleaders of the ECU Pirates.
It’s a good year to be a cheerleader at East Carolina University, too. That scurvy North Carolina Tar Heels coach Larry Fedora says that the ECU Pirates are boasting an exceptionally fierce crew this year, and Talk Like A Pirate Day will be a good motivational tool as the team gets ready to pillage Fedora’s band of scurvy dogs.
Also, the ECU Pirates Cheerleaders are a bold band of lassies who could distract the most shriveled of old salts. Take a look for yourself and get inspired to start practicing your own pirate lingo–but for the love of God, laddies, get the proper definition of a poop deck first…
