    We be plunderin’ the vast storehouses o’ the rich munis with fancy palns o’ development! Aye mates, pull along side that mangy city manager and tell him to ‘heave to!’ fore’ we breach his hull with a 10 pounder! Take careful aim on the city folk, there be TIF financing to be plundered!

    Give me a fair haired wench and a pint o’ grog any day over dealing with those scoundrels that be calling themselves ‘city staff’! Aye!

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    It's yet another International Talk Like A Pirate Day

    ... and it just wouldn't be complete without a retelling of this groaner.

    A pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel down the front of his pants.
    The bartender says, "Ahoy, matey, what's that steering wheel doing down the front of your pants?"
    The pirate says, "Arrr! it's driving me nuts!"

    Thank you. Don't forget to tip your server.

    A few more groanerrrrrs:

    How do pirates know that they are pirates?
    They think, therefore they ARRRR!

    Why does it take pirates so long to learn the alphabet?
    Because they can spend years at C!

    A pirate walks into a bar wearing a paper towel on his head. He sits down at the bar and orders some dirty rum.
    The bartender asks, "Why are you wearing a paper towel?"
    The pirate replies "Arrrrr! I've got a bounty on me head!"

    Arrr here be a treasure trove of pirate humor

    http://www.piratetreasure.org/pirate-jokes.htm
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Fifteen men on a dead man's chest
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
    Drink and the devil had done for the rest
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.
    The mate was fixed by the bosun's pike
    The bosun brained with a marlinspike
    And cookey's throat was marked belike
    It had been gripped by fingers ten;
    And there they lay, all good dead men
    Like break o'day in a boozing ken

    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.
