Members are urged to make an effort to celebrate on September 19th (maybe start early on Friday the 17th).

The 19th is not a "Pretend pirates get out of jail free" desiganted holiday. It's talking like one not acting like one. We hope to see many of you here. We may try a typing like a pirate assuming that is possible.

It is definitely in the spirit of fun. As my new employer is family orientated and adjacent a school, I don’t think there will be any serious mention of “pillaging, plundering” and one or two of the other heinous crimes that are often included in the same phrase. As I have posted elsewhere it is just fun role-play that can make life on the boat and shore just that bit more colourful.

Maybe you need to post a moderator’s thread advising everyone of the event?

OK - Surfer Shane and Paul have reminded us that this day is coming up and a thread dedicated to it sounds like a good idea.

Pirate Names

Oh - In order to get into the festivities I think we need fake names - not the real names like we all use here (ha, ha) - A Pirate Name!

Here is one of the many generators out there. I like this one cuz it gave me a cool name.

Pirate Name Generator

Quote:
Pirate Name Generator
Quote:

Your Result: Captain Silver Beard Jones

Maybe the most fearless most ruthless pirate that ever sailed the seven seas. You hate sweets or anything sweet but can always use a wench to keep you company. You probably hate everything but your crew and have the shortest temper I've ever seen. If someone gets in your way while you're mad nobody may eversee them again and the only one who can calm you down is your daughter.

(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.)

I need a new name generator. The one suggested by Ex-calif is rubbish

How could I every trust a machine that suggested my name should be 'Plain Jane'

hmmmm, ( I mean Arrrrghhhhhhh) I got 'Captain Tessa Rose', it has a certain ring to it , but the 'captain' bit makes me feel a wee bit squeamish , but it also suggested Plain Jane as a close second .

I like 'Wild Rose' , Fish Wife, that suits you , better than any generator would choose.

A :-)
