Ye All Be Knowin' What Day This Be? Talk Like O Pirate Day, Ye Scurvy Landlubbers...

Aye! Arrrrh... Ahoy Mates! Today be the day when we all get to palaver like a pirate! A fine and wonderful day it be... Let's make it a Mini- meme day to boot!
1. What was your all tyme favorite pirate movie?
2. What be the worst one you might have ever seen?
Me first! Bilge rats... tryin' to cut in on me Captains' share of the booty..
Me Best -Captain Blood! Based on a book by Rafael Sabatini, it was one of the first Error Flynn/Anthony Quinn match ups as Rovers of the High Seas..Although the original "Treasure Island".. Upon my soul, it is a seaworthy tale that warms the cockles of me heart..
Me Worst - A Kristi McNichol/Chris Atkins remake of Gilbert and Sullivans operetta "Pirates of Penzance" called "The Pirate Movie" All copies of this Jonah should be weighted and thrown into Davey Jones Locker forever!
Swabs, don't even think of tryin' yer hand at this, lest it be in Pirate speak! Oh, go on, give it a go... we won't keel haul ya if ya don't pick it up right smart..
Calm seas, and a fair wind at your backs today, mateys- and don't be usin' spell check today- as it won't help!


TavoLini said... rickets is acting up!

Original Treasure Island is a definite favorite!

Worst...there are no bad things about pirates, are there? I mean, other than the whole "getting robbed" bit ;)

Bina said...

I don't have a clue on how to speak pirate! Everytime I read "booty" I think of a butt!

Fav Pirate Movie. I just can't recall. I can't even think of any right now!

doggybloggy said...

Aye as a gentleman o' fortune destined for fiddlers green and No nay ne'er been lily livered even when loaded to the gunwales me matery I'll take a stab at yer swaggy -

I like all of the movies me hearty swashbucklin' buccaneers who enjoy the sweet trade have had the pleasure to have graced, I take the good with the bad.

Michelle Ann said...

I think my favorite would be the one with Maureen O'Hara...Against All can a woman pirate captain not be sexy?????

The Pirate Movie was the absolute worst! Kristy McNichol??? Very unsexy.

I guess you can figure out that I think pirates should be sexy

Akelamalu said...

Any swashbuckling film with Errol Flynn in it is my favourite.

Apart from 'pieces of eight, pieces of eight'I can't talk pirate!

buffalodick said...

Tavolini- Aye, Twas a good one..
bina- booty- avast behind!
DogB- Right smart pirate speak!
michelle- I liked that one meself!
Ake- He made more than one, that's for sure!

Vodka Mom said...

I LOVE the Johnny Depp pirate stuff. I know, i know.

Now, i think I might just find a pirate outfit for MR. VODKAMOM for tonight- that might be fun!!!!

deb said...

ok doggy that's good piratin'.
I won't even try. So just make me walk the plank. I can dress the part.

Yeah, Johnny Depp fan too. fun stuff.

MarmiteToasty said...

The 19th is also me birthday :) you scurmy scum LOL.....


buffalodick said...

VodkaM- I thought the first one was the best! Enjoyed it all the way..
deb- I expected more from a wench of your caliber.. Breaks me heart, it does... Figured you as a fine figure of a woman, who could go along side a blokes' head with a flagon- with either hand..
Marmy- Birthday wishes on your head, from all who sail for no country and honor the Articles... May you be Blessed by God Hisself with calm seas, a good breeze, and treasure for the takin'..

snowelf said...

Argh, ye wicked Cap'nUncleBuf, only for th' likes of ye, shall I be stoopin' lower than th' galley rats ta be squawkin' yer pirate-speak along side th' sea-lovin' booty swipin' folk.

It fears me heart to confess me sad tale, as I've only laid eyes upon two wind swept tales of high sea adventures: Pirates of the Caribbean and th' Kristi McNichol outfit, The Pirate Movie. The first, I'd consider givin' me good eye fer, the second--aye, might I walk th' plank meself if I had to unpatch for that again, as it reeks of festering grog-vomit in right-bad need of swabbing, matey.

To X always marking th' spot,


buffalodick said...

snowniece- Upon my soul, that was some of the best pirate speak we got!

MarmiteToasty said...

Fanks you scurvy scrum :)


G-Man said...

2..Mutiny On The Bounty..
Not really a Pirate Movie but close enough!!
( The one with Marlon Brando )

Mona said...

Shiver me timbers...its pirate speaks already!

I have seen just the last 15 minutes of the Pirate of the Caribbean , I hated it, but loved to see eyeliner waring Johnny Depp & Keira!

buffalodick said...

marmy- Couldn't say Happy Birthday on your post, for some reason..
g-man- She had to be the most rescued woman in History!
Mona- !st oone was good, next two- not so much..

Anndi said...

Shall I walk the plank now?
