Happy Talk Like a (Tort) Pirate Day

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.
