FFFUQ (Fartist Friday Frequently Unasked Questions):

What?
Fartist Fridays are weekly creativity contests that you can participate in with things you have on hand since many of us are stuck at home right now. If you have an idea for a future contest theme please post it here or send it along to Farkback.

Why? Show off your skills (or lack thereof!) while we practice socially distancing together, and be sure to vote for your favorite entries.

When? This contest is submitted on Thursdays with entry open immediately to TotalFarkers (membership has its privileges!), then it goes to the Main Page on Friday. Entries close around midnight Eastern on Sunday night. All times are approximate because we're all drunk.

You're A Towel? You bet your bippy.

How Does Voting Work? Please check the "Enable voting for this entry" box. If you forget, report it and ask, we'll do our best to turn it on for you. We consider an entry to be voting eligible by default so please mention if you want voting disabled on your post.

Check out past Fartiste contests by clicking on the Topic Tag. All skill levels encouraged and most importantly: We're all in this together so let's create some F'Arts together - Fark Arts, that is.

And your fun reminder that "pirate speak" is just successful brainwashing by Disney

https://www.nationalgeographic.com/new​s/2017/9/120919-talk-like-a-pirate-day​-news-history/

Many of the phrases that most people think of as pirate speech today can actually be traced back to the 1950s Disney movie Treasure Island, starring Robert Newton as fictional pirate Long John Silver (hear Newton as Silver).
"Newton's performance-full of 'arrs,' 'shiver me timbers,' and references to landlubbers-not only stole the show, it permanently shaped pop culture's vision of how pirates looked, acted, and spoke," Woodard said.
