Celebrate International Talk Like a Pirate Day by scribblin’ ye finest buccaneer-them’d joke in today’s Writer’s Block, arrr, Scrawl. Top jokes win me booty. [Contest Details]
Today got off to a bad start when I announced in my best voice, "Hello, passengers, and welcome to flight JG-245 from London Heathrow to Paris Charles De Gaulle." A group of passengers with wooden legs and parrots on their shoulders angrily stormed the cockpit and started saying things like "oo arrr, me hearties." One of them had a hook on the end of his arm and stuck it somewhere quite personal, intimate and frankly rather painful.
So it turns out it's *not* "International Talk Like a Pilot Day" after all..?
