Do we really know what pirates talked like other than what Disney tells us?

What if pirates spoke just like the Queen?

(Disclaimer - We all know that real piracy is bad. We don't condone it nor do we hope to romanticize it. There is however fictionalization of Caribbean piracy that somewhat brings to mind the freedom to chart your own course in the world. Let's keep this in the spirit of fun and tongue in cheek.)
Actually, as far as sailing goes, pirates were the great innovators of their time, modifying to make the best use of all the ships/equipment/instruments from different cultures that they plundered/captured/seized. The 17th and 18th century hod-rodders, rum-runners, and sometimes government sanctioned a la privateers...

I love it!! Great Idea

Pirate Name Generator
Your Result: Captain Tessa Rose
Captain Tessa Rose is a name that matches with the adventurous personality. You usually show no quarter if betrayed by a friend and have a short temper. You can be sweet when you want but might just blow a fuse. You take many risks and don't care about never making it back.



Call me Tess or call me Rosie, but if ya leave out the Captain I just may spit in yer eye..arrrr Dang this is fun, I think I may be a pirate for Halloween!

Now bring me that horizon!
Erika, aka Ocean Girl, aka Captain Tessa Rose

I'm sure we all have different ideas of the origins of "Talk like a pirate day". Learn all about it and the effect pirates had on global warming.

So .... it has all come down to hormones?
