A pirate's life for me!

I fear that the three Muir daughter's interest in Johnny Depp verges on idolatry, but nonetheless, the Muir family went to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest today. For some time, our favourite pirate joke has been:

Why are pirates called pirates?

They just aaarrrr!

However in a flash of inspiration, perhaps prompted by the film, daughter number three came up with:

What is a pirate's favourite country?

Aaarrrrgentina.

This then started a flurry of nonsense. The best (and trust me, these are the best!) are reproduced below for your edification and enjoyment... well they are definately reproduced below. :-)

What is a pirate's favourite shop?

Aaarrrrgos.

Where do pirate penguins live?

The Antaaarrrrtic.

What do pirates drive?

Caaarrrs (and aaarrrrticulated lorries).

What do you call a large cohort of pirates?

Avast aaarrrrmy.

How do pirates speak?

They use the venaculaaarrrr.

Where do pirates go for fun?

The aaarrrrcade.

Who is a pirate's favourite Star Wars character?

Queen Aaarrrrmidala.

Well, it amused us. :-) Feel free to add some of your own.

Thanks for playing the game Graham.

As the first to contribute I feel you should win a prize. Can I suggest you buy yourself a Mars Bar and if I ever meet you, I'll pay you the money back. :-)

Just subscribe to my blog and I'll be happy!

David said...

You're already there... honest! I think I added your blog after you picked up a quote off my blog from George Bush via something Alan November said at the eLive conference in Edinburgh.

...So I'm still willing to buy you a Mars Bar next time I'm in Australia or you are in Scotland. :-)

Nice -- two pirate gags for the price of one! Definitely my favourite.

Hello Brian

This is a variation on a joke I'd heard before, but the pirate twist is nice. Thanks for sharing. :-)
