My Facebook is set to English (Pirate) so every day for me is Talk Like a Pirate day.  :pir_laugh2:

I'm pretty stoked, but disappointed because it's on a Saturday. More fun when it's on a school day.

i was looking at that download page... IT DONT WORK!! it wont let me look at the iron ons, which i want some to make my own piratey lego shirt :jollyroger: because lego doesnt make any...(yeah they do, but not up for sale...)

anyways... just wondering if anyone else has this problem.... i use mozilla firefox(just got it, dont know alot about it), not sure if this has anything to do with it.. but it might.

I was tempted to put some of the mod's real faces on the pirates but..... ic ould do it if you guys really want to see it but you guys pic the mods. I'm probably not going to set my text to pirate. Lego is probably tring to bost sales.

Those jerks! How dare a business try and improve their sales. What's wrong with them, it's like they have to pay bills and feed themselves and their families.  :pir-hmpf_bad:

That Quest for R2 was just a big commercial. This is a real event but Lego is promoting Pirates with it. I might star using pirate lingo when I post here which isn't that often. One of my teachers was obessed with pirates and taught the class some lingo which I vaugely remember.

You say that like it's a bad thing.  I'm a teacher and every year on September 19 I celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day.  It's too bad that it happens on Saturday this year, as it's something the kids usually enjoy doing.

For anyone's who's interested, these are the guys that started the holiday:

The language is a bit confusing at first but in a day or two you'll get used to it.

Last year I did have a great day talking like a pirate with my friends online. I did use the AV Voice Changer Software to change my real voice into many different pirate voices. It’s a great memory. I am gonna do it this year. :pir-cry_happy:
