Arrrr!

Posted by purplemary54 on September 19, 2012

Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day.  Well, it was.  I’ve still got about 4 and half hours left of it here on the west coast.  I meant to post earlier today, but between work and dinner and Jeopardy!, I couldn’t get to it until now.

I decided to celebrate by posting a song by/about pirates, because pirates are cool–that’s the lasting message of Johnny Depp and the Pirates of the Caribbean movies–but I didn’t think there’d be much music outside of those movies and the Disney ride.  But lo and behold, here’s George Harrison being wonderfully, unapologetically silly.

So yo ho ho, and raise a bottle of rum in salute of those daring renegades of the sea.  (Okay, they were really murderous thieves with bad teeth and syphilis, but never let the truth stand in the way of a good story.)  I hope nobody made you walk the plank today.  Arrr, ye mateys.
