This is almost certainly funnier than you think. Almost.

Seppuku

Having made an embarrassingly shocking grammatical error in an online chat recently, naturally I briefly contemplated seppuku, and explained this to the chat-ee, who proceeded to ask what it was.

So first I turned to Wikipedia, which then provided me with the following links; they’re certainly the most amusingly informative articles on auto-disembowelment I’ve read recently.

Talk Like A Pirate Day

Shiver yer timbers and yarg yer crackers for September 19th, Talk Like a Pirate Day, is here again. Er, maties. I’m sorry, I’m not very good at this. Aarr.

The official UK site yarr.org.uk is linking to Eye Patch Day, which is helping raise funds for the Jubilee Sailing Trust, a charity which organizes adventure sailing activities for physically disabled and able-bodied people.

The Eye Patch Day site also shows former Apprentice UK candidate, self-styled “business bad boy” and giant chicken enthusiast Syed Ahmed among the eyepatch-sporting celebrities. Also Rick Astley, who is of course famed mainly for a particularly fine anagram of his name, as well as all that singing stuff. The most promintently featured, though, is super-yachtswoman Ellen MacArthur, who seems to have turned into Michael J Fox judging by the picture…

And with that brief round-up, I be off to scrape the barnacles from me tired old body, and get some shuteye before the big day. Yaarrr, etc.

I like this one – the catalogue pose Cap’n Jack.

Yarg?

For reasons too numerous and complicated to bore you with, I was embarrassed at work the other day by being unable to decide on a pirate name for myself when called upon.

A quick Google has enabled me to rectify this… although I’m not convinced it’s ideal, it will have to do for now…

My pirate name is:
Bloody Tom Cash

pirate flag

Every pirate lives for something different. For some, it’s the open sea. For others (the masochists), it’s the food. For you, it’s definitely the fighting. You’re musical, and you’ve got a certain style if not flair. You’ll do just fine. Arr!

Get your own pirate name from fidius.org.

This is why I need an extra dance mat, a floppy hat, and a webcam. Oh, and some sort of vague semblance of physical co-ordination.
