I have learned that today (September 19) is the official "Talk Like a Pirate Day." In an effort to be of assistance to those who frequent The Beehive, I offer the following useful phrases and their definitions:
"Thar she blows!" - The pirate equivalent of "Whoop, there it is!"
"ARRRGHHHH" - This phrase shows general discontent. Or it can also mean that someone is about to get wild- a.k.a. a battle cry.
"Wake me at the zenith of the moon" - Only full blown pirates know this phrase. An educated pirate is rare but also the most deadly kind. They are smarter than you and crazier.
"Ahoy, me hearties!" - Equivalent of "Hello, my friends!"
"Avast ye scum ridden weevil shaggers. Captain Black Beard is gonna keel haul you and grow barnacles on ye starboard knacker." - The Captain isn't happy...
"I'm gonna make a kill" - This pirate is going to kill something... and he is serious about it.
"Dogs ahoy!" - Equivalent of "Things to kill, straight ahead."
"Shiver me timbers!" - Like saying "Oh, my!" like "my legs are shaking."
"Skuttle me Skippers" - Making a mistake and being judged for/by it.
"Avast ye varmint" - Stop right there young man because you're in big trouble.
"Weigh anchor!" - Let's go!
"Yarr." - I agree.
"Yarr!" - I see your point, and agree wholeheartedly.
"Yarr-ha-harr!" - You're right!
"Yarr?" - Excuse me, what did you say?
"Yarrgh" - I respectfully acknowledge that you are right and I am wrong.
"Blow me down!" - You don't say? How surprising.
"Ye Scalawag!" - You dirty dog!
"Savvy?" - Is that okay with you? Do you understand?
"Ahoy" - Call to attract attention, something akin to 'Hello, there!'
"Fo'c's'le" - Slang for Forecastle. Small candlelit room where a pirate used the sopping bucket. (Bathroom)
"Jack" - A flag or a sailor; showing how sailors would refer to their ship's colors as one of the crew. Hence Jack Tar for sailor and the Union Jack flag.
"Messdeck lawyer" - A know-it-all.
"Landlubber" - A "Non-pirate" or a curse for someone who is a coward.
"Weigh anchor! Hoist the mizzen!!!" - Basically adds on to 'Let's go!'
"Davey Jones' Locker" - death after walking the plank. Your coffin in the sea.
"A merry yarn" - A good story.
ARRGHHH! Avast ye Landlubbers. Now ye know how to talk. Savvy? Weigh anchor, and watch Muppet's Treasure Island if ye need more.
