Ahoy, mateys! Today, September 19th, be Talk Like a Pirate Day. ‘Tis an auspicious day, aye, and in honorrr of our brethren that doth pillage the seven seas, we be wantin’ you swabbies to put on yer thinkin’ caps and do some writin’: Why dontcha be usin’ the comments space to dream up some pirate-involvin’ plots for yer favorrrite TV shows? Perrrsonally, I’ve always thought Barrrney on How I be Meetin’ Yer Mother needs a parrot.

Arrr!  Imprrress us! Perrrhaps there’s a bottle of rum in it fer ya!
