Piratical Paraphernalia


Arrrr.... I hope I spelled that right. Doesn't LOOK right to me emoticon but the spell checker told me that was the way to go.

I am looking for a nice Jolly Roger pirate flag, maybe 8 x 10 inches in size. I used to have one; I think I bought it at Disneyland many years ago.

Any ideas???? I've looked on eBay, but most are too big for my purpose.

My electric scooter came with a flag, so others can see me, but it has "Electric Mobility" printed on it. I LIKE my scooter, but I am not fond of the company, and I REFUSE to give them even more advertising, in addition to the brand name and phone # on the scooter itself. So, I was thinking that a pirate flag would be just the thing.

Arrrr..... 'Oist the flag, mateys!

Try ...

http://www.deadmentellnotales.com/

They seem to have a number of flags in a variety of sizes, not to mention just about everything else piratical you could imagine. If you order from them, let us know whether you're satisfied.

PS: Whether you spelled "arr" right? Well, I don't usually use so many r's, but ... oh, you mean "paraphernalia"? Arrr, 'tis correct. emoticon

posticon Re: Piratical Paraphernalia


Recently I was watching one of my favorite British comedy series called Are You Being Served?. In an episode entitled, "Calling All Customers", the characters are putting on a radio program. One of the characters has to talk like an English country squire whose keen on wenches. LOL
He tells the director that he thinks he's found a suitable voice for the part. To my utter delight, he says (clearly imitating RN as Silver): "Right, young Jim Lad, if I catch you round my little Nell, I'll 'orsewhip you within an inch of yer life!"
To this, the director replies, "Well, if we had a parrot, we could do Treasure Island." It was awesome! emoticon

Re: Piratical Paraphernalia


Am I the only one who gets a bit wary about getting anything piratical these days, what with Pirates of the Carribean etc? I can't stand Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom OR Keira Knightley - which makes it a bit difficult for me to ever want to watch the films. I did force myself through the first one and while I thought it was an enjoyable romp, I still longed for a 'real' pirate to make it all worthwhile!!!! Give me Robert Newton, Errol Flynn and Burt Lancaster over these two-bit phoneys any day!!!

Plus the fact so many emo and goth kids are going round with jolly rogers and stuff, you never know what you're going to get confused with!!!!!

I feel like starting a 'Real Pirates for Real Pirate Movies' campaign!!

Maybe I'm too much of a snob???? Likely!!

What? You didn't like Geoffrey Rush? OMG, I thought he was an awesome pirate, paying homage to Robert Newton without actually ripping him off. (Have you seen the films? I can't stand Orlando or Keira either. Depp is funny. But Geoffrey is the reason to see those films, as far as I'm concerned, especially the first one. In fact, he's barely in the second one, so if you don't like those other guys and gobs of overwhelming CGI effects, I'd say skip the second one.)

posticon Talk Like A Pirate Day


Ahoy, Mates!
'Appy International Talk Like a Pirate Day to 'e tomorrow!
All hands raise a noggin o' rum for our Bobbie, Cap'n Silver himself!
Those mutinous maggots who fail to heed this order will walk the plank! emoticon
"If sailor tales to sailor tunes,
Storm and adventure, heat and cold,
If schooners, islands, and maroons,
And buccaneers, and buried gold,
And all the old romance, retold
Exactly in the ancient way,
Can please, as me they pleased of old,
The wiser youngsters of today:
--So be it, [Ha Har! emoticon]and fall on!"

Re: Talk Like A Pirate Day


Ahoy, and a happy TLAPD to you too! Arrr, I love that poem and the way he reads it!

You made me realize I failed to set up a topic dedicated to talking like a pirate (this one's more for where to find pirate merchandise), so I've started one that we can reuse from year to year. (Sorry I didn't think of it sooner!)
