    Thanks Wayner. I've been having a bad day at work and that just made me forget all about it.

    Bonus pickup lines (when the ones above don't work, as they often won't)

    They donít call me Long John because my head is so big.

    Youíre drinking a Salty Dog? Howíd you like to try the real thing?

    Wanna shiver me timbers?

    Iíve sailed the seven seas, and youíre the sleekest schooner Iíve ever sighted.

    Brwaack! Polly want a cracker? Ö Oh, wait. Thatís for Talk Like a PARROT Day.

    Thatís the finest pirate booty Iíve ever laid eyes on.

    Let's get together and haul some keel.

    Thatís some treasure chest youíve got there.

    NEW: A loyal reader offers some additional pickup lines fer the female pirate:

    Mind If I climb your rigging?
    Nice Mast.
    Care to dock into Port?
    Could you untangle my rigging?
    Come swab my deck.

    Pirate lingo is rich and complicated, sort of like a good stew. There are several other sites that offer glossaries that are pretty good.

    But if you just want a quick fix, a surface gloss, a "pirate patina," if you will, here are the five basic words that you cannot live without. Master them, and you can face Talk Like a Pirate Day with a smile on your face and a parrot on your shoulder, if that's your thing.

    Ahoy! - "Hello!"

    Avast! - Stop and give attention. It can be used in a sense of surprise, "Whoa! Get a load of that!" which today makes it more of a "Check it out" or "No way!" or "Get off!"

    Aye! - "Why yes, I agree most heartily with everything you just said or did."

    Aye aye! - "I'll get right on that sir, as soon as my break is over."

    Arrr! - This one is often confused with arrrgh, which is of course the sound you make when you sit on a belaying pin. "Arrr!" can mean, variously, "yes," "I agree," "I'm happy," "I'm enjoying this beer," "My team is going to win it all," "I saw that television show, it sucked!" and "That was a clever remark you or I just made." And those are just a few of the myriad possibilities of Arrr!

    The scary thing is that I understood every one of those.
    I was in love with a difficult man.

    Sadly, this means that Miss F has sat on a belaying pin, the poor dear.

    Well of course, that's what I meant.

    Pssst... what the hell does 'belayed' mean?

    Belaying Pin: A strong pin in the side of a vessel, or by the mast, round which ropes are wound when they are fastened or belayed.

    Belayed: Secured.

    So says Wayner, the apparently geeky pirate.

    I think Holiday's T-Rex is sitting on a belaying pin as well.
