It's "International Talk Like A Pirate Day", not "National Talk Like A Pirate Day" so I've corrected the title of this thread accordingly.

it's quite right the closest translation I can make is :

"ya ! freshwater marine, you want me to makes you scrape the bottom ( it means : you want me makes you go to the bottom of the see, you want me to sink/hit you ) , block head!"

On another forum I frequent, they have a script that automatically changes all the posts to pirate talk on this day. Might be something to consider here too. :pir_laugh2:
