But I got distracted by the evil VG Cats. My pirate kinda sucks, but this is the email I sent to some of my work friends today.
Avast, ye landlocked lubbers! It be time again for all scurvy dogs and comely wenches engage their persons with all due festivity! Aye, 'tis International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Ye'd best be participatin', if'n ye care to not walk the plank! If ye be needin' aid ta talk like a pirate, or ye'd be needin' ta make additions ta your piratey vocabulary, set sail for http://www.talklikeapirate.com/
and prepare to hoist yer Jolly Roger and join the raid! Arrr!
I got two replies, one from a guy saying basically 'lol', and another in the form of a sticky note in reply to a question I'd asked on a claim. The coder replied 'Aye, we have an accord." :D
