It is indeed Talk Like a Pirate Day. Today is the first one since I started teaching where I don't teach class, so I can't urge students to start every answer with "Aye!" or "Ahoy!" or "Yarr!" (Well, I suppose I could urge such responses on other days, but it would be (more) odd.)
So instead I will urge readers to celebrate. Some suggested terms:
- Res ipsa loquitARRRR!
- Matey, ye caused a batt'ry when ye sliced off me hand!
- Avast! Belay that sayin' I assaulted ye! Ye know ye didn't be apprehendin' a touchin'! In all my years, I never seen such an addled fool!
That's just a start, of course. Please add more in the comments.
