Arr! I suspect this will be the only one! No sense of fun, some of ye! Walk the plank ye shivering land-lubbing interloper!

It's a slow day... The new top graphic is one of the funniest things I've seen for a while. God that's depressing.

Actually, Swashbuckler's Cove isn't some site I googled because it's talk-like a pirate day. It's an excellent, extensive resource of pirate history and as such probably of interest to people. The pirate radio hall of fame is another site I'm previously familiar with, and I find it charmingly cheesey. It's comprehensive archive of pirate radio DJs I think is quite an endeavour, and is typical of the sort of internet curiousity that I think would be mefi-worthy on any day of the year. The antithesis of newsfilter if you like. I wouldn't mind betting you didn't click the links...

Anway, enough justification ;)

For the record, nthdegx, I did not intend to appear to be accusing you of "Googling Up a Post". I just trembled at the likelihood that every MeFite who has a favorite pirate-related site would be posting it today, instead of anything else, and especially trembled at the pre-vision of pirate posts from quonsar, Miguel, StanChin, and certain others. (hama7, crunchland and taz have all done good history posts lately, but could any of them find a better 'pirate history' site than you already have?)

A pirate walks into a bar. The bartender asks "What's with the steering wheel sticking out of your pants?."
The Pirate answers - "Arrrrr. It's driving me nuts."

Two pirates walk into a bar. Which is odd, because you'd think the second one would have stopped when the other one hit it.

Thanks. I'm here all week, matey.
