The Slush God Speaketh: Pirates say Arrr!

Take note, for those of you planning to submit to Shimmer’s pirate issue, of what the Slush God says on his blog.

Pirates say “Arrr!”, damn it: no “gh.” “Argh!” is a cry of frustration (it is, also apparently a fungeoid esoteric programming language). I keep seeing this error over and over, and as the editor of a piratical periodical, this bothers me.

I have to say that I love the way “piratical periodical” rolls off the tongue.
