Shiver me timbers, some of you need to watch those Johnny Depp Pirates of the Caraibbean movies a few more times, lol.   ;)

My personal favorite is the Family Guy episode where Peter Griffin becomes a pirate wannabe thanks to a parrakeet.

Last year my Spanish classes watched Pirates of the Caribbean dubbed in Spanish. They loved it. This year we're watching Princess Bride (It's got the Dread Pirate Roberts).

Thanks for the link to the Pirate Site.

I forwarded it to my "cube" mates at work.

You should hear the converstations we are having over the walls!
