Shiver me timbers!

I am a great fan of "Talk Like a Pirate Day!"

That was today, and for the record, I don't think I said anything pirate-ish at all, but it is still so fun that such a day exists!

On another note, I know that people only like to post the best pictures on their sites. The ones where you look skinny. The ones where you can't see the nose hairs on your husband. The ones where your eyes are not half-closed in that "I am SO STONED, DUDE" look. No one intentionally posts bad pictures unless it is to hurt someones feelings or make fun of someone.

I am going to break that rule and post sort of an unflattering picture. I couldn't resist, but please be aware that there will soon be cuteness to follow.

In honor of Talk Like a Pirate Day, take a look at my own little pirate. He can't talk yet, so he is celebrating Look Like a Pirate Day.

No matter how unflattering you think the picture is... it is still your little precious man!

But, you're right... the picture doesn't quite do the little angel justice of his absolute adorable-ness!

I can so hear him saying "arghhhh"

What a cutie. I wasn't picturing him with all that dark hair.

I can see why you're so attached to him already!

I thought it would amuse you that my brother spoke like pirate almost ALL day yesterday, except when he had to answer the phone at work. However he said after awhile he had this bizarre blended dialect going when he answered

My nephew is either going to think his first official photo posting is hilarious or aaaaaaaaarguably the most embarrassing moment of the first 6 days of his life.

This pirate walks into a bar with a big ship's wheel down his pants. The bartender says, "Excuse me, sir, but do you know you have a ship's wheel down the front of your pants?"
And the pirate says...

A pirate walks into a bar and the bartender says, "Hey, I haven't seen you in a while. What happened, you look terrible!"
"What do you mean?" the pirate replies, "I'm fine."
The bartender says, "But what about that wooden leg? You didn't have that before."
"Well," says the pirate, "We were in a battle at sea and a cannon ball hit my leg but the surgeon fixed me up, and I'm fine, really."
"Yeah," says the bartender, "But what about that hook? Last time I saw you, you had both hands."
"Well," says the pirate, "We were in another battle and we boarded the enemy ship. I was in a sword fight and my hand was cut off but the surgeon fixed me up with this hook, and I feel great, really."
"Oh," says the bartender, "What about that eye patch? Last time you were in here you had both eyes."
"Well," says the pirate, "One day when we were at sea, some birds were flying over the ship. I looked up, and one of them shat in my eye."
"So?" replied the bartender, "what happened? You couldn't have lost an eye just from some bird shit!"
"Well," says the pirate, "I really wasn't used to the hook yet."

why does a pirate's phone go beep beep beep beep beep?
because he left it off the hook!
