Arrrr! It's That Time of Year Again, Me Mateys!
Ahoy, me hearteys! What a great day i’tis to be sailin’ the mighty seas!
As you all know, I am married to the Farm Boy, who eventually becomes… the Dread Pirate Westley! Additionally, my oldest daughter is majoring in swashbuckling at Pirate College (okay, not really… but that was her first choice!). So, we’re well-versed in pirate life.
And since today is Talk Like A Pirate Day, what could be more fitting than to discuss your favorite pirate quotes.
Some of my favorites are Captain Jack Sparrow’s... here are two I particularly like:
"I have no sympathy for any of you feculent maggots and no more patience to pretend otherwise. Gentlemen, I wash my hand of this weirdness." I use this one at work almost daily. :-)
"Why would he do that? Because he's a lummox, isn't he? Well we shall have a magnificent garden party and you're not invited!" (Both quote from “Pirates…3”)
So, you scurvy little scalliwags, what is YOUR favorite pirate quote??
