Avast! Talk Like a Pirate Day Giveaway

pirate07coverAhoy me hearties, it be International Talk Like a Pirate Day, which be one o’ me favorite days o’ th’ year.  In honour o’ this fine day, I be givin’ away a wee bit o’ booty.

In the unpacking o’ our boxes, I found a stash of Shimmer‘s Pirate Issue, edited by Cap’n John Joseph Adams and illustrated by th’ fearsome James A. Owen. I’ll bestow one o’ these treasures on th’ matey with the best piratical exclamation.

“Shiver me timbers” be so old it be swimmin’ w’ th’ fishes.  Show me yer most inventive expression.

So, from now til th’ witching hour on the Pacific Coast, drop yer name in th’ hat o’ comments with yer best piratical speak and I’ll pick me favorite.

    Belay that malarkey, lass! Nae self-respectin’ pirate would stoop to accept booty what’s been given away. We pirates take what we like, and throw the rest to Davy Jones! So hand it over, or ye’ll be scrapin’ the barnacles from me hull with yer teeth!

    Shiver me timbers! Tis a fearsome wondrous stash o’ treasure you be givin’ to a matey. Now watch th’ landlubbers don’t knot your sails w’ false piratical excl’mations.

    Ahoy, hearties! ‘At thar be quite the piece o’ booty. Would ‘at twere mine to plunder ‘n’ pillage as I will!

    Arrr- ye’ve sniffed out the truth, and will be forced to swear eternal secrecy or it’s ‘tell no tales’ for you! We modern pirates scorn timbers as old-fashioned, and possibly enviromentally unsound. Plastics is what we’ll be shiverin’, once we’ve had our noggin o’ rum.

    Strike yer colors and raise the Jolly Roger!
