Talk Like A *Parrot* Day???

I’ve told you that I work with some of the most awesome folk on the planet, right?

Remember how last September 19th, several landlubbers (including my husband) went all out for TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY? (Which, if you haven’t put it together, is TODAY?)

Well… James absolutely, positively topped himself this year.

May I present a PARROT with a PIRATE on his shoulder…

    That’s one evil beak on that Parrot. You should send the photo to the talk like a pirate website so they can get our joke.

    James, it takes a real man to walk around all day covered in feathers. You are awesome!

    You’re putting our developers to shame … I believe they write pirate comments in their code on Sept 19, but, nobody dresses up!

    I had an ephinany in about 1981, when I visited Cornwall and was shocked to find that all of the locals sounded like pirates! Cornish folk are ancestraly sea-faring, and I think it was Wallace Beery’s Long John Silver in “Treasure Island” (1934) who set our modern ear for pirate talk toward cornish-inflected English.

    OMG! I thought all this was a joke about it being “talk like a pirate day” and all.

    Obviously I was wrong.

    That is awesome!
