Yom Kippur is over. So is Ramadan. Now it's time to sharpen your hand-hook, put your parrot on your shoulder, raise the skull-and-crossbones, put the plank over the gunwale, load the cannons, clean the poop off the poopdeck, secure the treasure chests, batten down the hatches, unfurl the sails, man the yardarms, keelhaul the landlubbers, watch Peter Pan and Pirates of the Caribbean and say "avast," "yo-ho-ho," "AAARRRGGHH" and "me hearties" a lot.
Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
Now, get me some grog and hardtack, wench. I be preparin' to plunder some booty!
