But don't drink grog.  Pirates didn't drink grog, especially since grog was invented long after the golden age of piracy.  They drank a drink called "bumbo", when they drank a mixed drink.  But most often it was beer, wine, or rum.

So, they hadn't invented adding water to run yet? Were they too busy working on their PR?

I woke my daughter with "Avast, ye scurvy dogs. It be time to prepare to walk the many planks!* It be ITLPD!"

She just laid there in silence, probably considering that her father might be a weirdo.

This guy is the patron saint of "talk like a pirate".

He was Welsh, so that might explain some of it.

Good a place as any to unload some of these:

* How much did the pirate pay for his piercings?  A buck-an-ear!
* Why is pirating addictive?  Coz once ye lose yer first hand, ye get hooked!
* I heard the other day that 3.14 percent of sailors are pi rates.
* A landlubber tries his hand at sailing.  He finds his way on a crew bound for Jamaica.  He asks the skipper, "Do ships like this sink often?"  The cap'n replies, "No...usually it's just once."

And finally...

Once upon a time there was a famous sea captain.  This captain was very successful at what he did; for years he guided merchant ships all over the world.  Never did stormy seas or pirates get the best of him.  He was admired by his crew and fellow captains.  However, there was one thing different about this captain. Every morning he went through a strange ritual.  He would lock himself in his captain's quarters and open a small safe.  In the safe was an envelope with a piece of paper inside.  He would stare at the paper for a minute, and then lock it back up. After, he would go about his daily duties.  For years this went on, and his crew became very curious.  Was it a treasure map?  Was it a letter from a long lost love?  Everyone speculated about the contents of the strange envelope.  One day the captain died at sea.  After laying the captain's body to rest, the first mate led the entire crew into the captains' quarters.  He opened the safe, got the envelope, opened it and... The first mate turned pale and showed the paper to the others.  Four words were on the paper, two each on two lines:

You might be an asshole, but I'm not yet sure. Provide more proof.
