This is funny...

My daughter and I, (much to my wife's dismay), have a "drink like a pirate" thing where we both pick up our glasses, take a good swig and plonk it down quite hard as we both go "Arrrggghhhh"...

My daughter and I enjoy it both privately and in public... My lovely wife... Neither really... :}

aye...bugger the cabin boy

Would that be the young Master Bates who once sailed under the pirate Capt Pugwash? I seem to recall his friend was a Seaman Staines

Poor old Auntie BBC, I think they broadcast the series for a year or more before anyone noticed.....is it any wonder my generation grew up with a twisted sense of humour?

Arrr. Sorry to burst yer bubble me hearties: courtesy of Wikipedia:

xxLibel case regarding double entendres[edit source | editbeta]

There is a persistent urban legend, repeated by the now defunct UK newspaper the Sunday Correspondent, that ascribes sexually suggestive names such as Master Bates, Seaman Staines, and Roger (meaning "have sex with") the Cabin Boy to Captain Pugwash's characters, and indicating that the captain's name was a slang Australian term for oral sex.[2] John Ryan successfully sued both the Sunday Correspondent and The Guardian newspapers in 1991 for printing this legend as fact.[3] The origin of this myth is likely due to student rag mags from the 1970s.[4]

I don't speak Somali, but here is my best effort in Arabic:

الفدية هو 5 مليون دولار أمريكي، تدفع إلى المنطاد ج / س PPRuNe. هذا إذا كنت تريد أن ترى السفينة والطاقم عاد بسلام ...

Roughly translated: The ransom is US $ 5 million, payable to airship c/o PPRuNe. That's if you want to see the ship and crew returned safely...

Sorry for correcting but there was no Seaman Staines aboard the Black Pig. it was Tom the cabin boy and Master Mates.

I used to have a customer whose MD was actually called Robert James Ladd. I understand he used to get somewhat touchy when 'Speak Like A Pirate Day' came around.............

19th Sep 2013, 14:47
Oi recall that the cabin boy was called Chipper. Wasn't he a randly little nipper! He made a pass with a broken glass, which circumcised the skipper.

After that, we called him chum, and the sharks swum away well fad that mornin' :eek:

"Talk like a Pirate Day".....:hmm: does posting any speeches by Robert Maxwell count at all ?

International talk like a pirate day?

i guess this will merely add to the rather voluminous list of x days. Like International Secretary Day or International this day and International that day. Amazing how many days we have to pay homage to the most trivial of things. Indicative of how little we, in general, have to do.

Therefore, I now proclaim the 19th of every September as:

International Farting Day.

Let's all add to global warming on each 19 Sep and let 'er rip.
Every man, woman, and child on 19 Sep must fart at least once on this day. Any fart lasting under, say, 10 seconds is not counted. Let's bake this planet.

19th Sep 2013, 19:08
Add me to that list as well !!! :}

Me too but I'll have to do double cause Mrs Super never farts.

I fart a pirate everytime and blame it on me parrot.

19th Sep 2013, 19:30

I hear ya! I've always found it one of life's many enigmas that some wimmin' folk never seem to let one rip. Take Mrs. rgbrock1 for example. I've known her for over 7 years now and have yet to hear her unleash the hounds. Not once.

So, I guess the question is this: if they don't fart where the hell does all the gaseous buildup go?

Oh. Never mind. :}:}:}

So they would have you believe, but they do, you know.

Not a good trouser seam ripping 102db proper fart, but an insidious silent but highly toxic affair, which thay blame on you, or the dog, or a passing badger, or what ever their fertile imaginations can lay their hands on.

Fart away, dear friends. Those women who do not fart are lacking confidence. Those women who do fart will never admit it.

Masculine candour in this arena is, I think, meritorious.

rgb, take note.

You might be right we have two dogs she often says ( when dog is sitting next to her) ooh Harry that's a bad smell.

19th Sep 2013, 19:43
I thought it was generally acknowledged that the fairer sex didn't keep quiet long enough to build up enough back pressure to manufacture farts. :}

19th Sep 2013, 19:57
No, no, no, beaufort.

You are on the wrong track. World class farting comes from eating baked beans, vindaloo curries, drinking a lot of beer, and all manner of other activities which the dear womenfolk eschew.

I kew a bloke who seldom spoke, but farted splendidly, and his best mate was a veritable torrent of words, but never seemed to fart.

Unless, that is, he had developed the ultimate skill, the ventriloquists fart.

19th Sep 2013, 20:02
Now I more fully understand why my mother-in-law has probably never farted a day of her life.

Sorry, but you're all amateurs!!!

Which day is the "Global Light your farts" day?

19th Sep 2013, 22:16
Tuesday November 5th.

Guy Fawkes was misunderstood.He only intended to light a few farts.The gunpowder was wet ayway.

The first mate's name was Carter
By god he was a farter
When the wind didn't blow
and the ship wouldn't go
they got Carter the farter to start her.

Frigging in the rigging
tossing on the crossing
wanking on the planking
there was **** all else to do.......

Aaaah, "he who simply fell overboard" (or perhaps committed suicide) according to everyone back then (referring to M/Y LADY GHISLAINE) or as I regularly see her in the south of France as M/Y LADY MONA K (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lady_Mona_K)

Is that what you were referring to?! The very long arms and tentacles of some ME nations should never be under-estimated. Even 22 years afterwards...?! :uhoh:
