Arrrrrrrrrrrr! Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day!!!

September 19th - International Talk Like a Pirate Day!!!

I choose to talk like Betty from YellowBeard...

Betty: Well, it's been awhile since we had a little cuddle. Yellowbeard: I raped ya, if that's what you mean. Betty: Okay. It was half-cuddle, half-rape. Yellowbeard: I'm sure I killed the last one I raped, it can't have been you. Betty: Well, the afterplay was a bit on the rough side, but not fatal dear.

[Betty throws a book Dan had been reading on the floor] Betty: Read, read, read, read! Let me tell you something - last time I read a book, I was raped. Let THAT be a lesson to you.

And the best...

Betty: [Recreating the path to where the treasure is burried] Stagger, stagger, crawl, crawl, jump...

Arrrrr!!! Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day Ya Landlubbers!!!

BroMaynardG: We were selling Pirate Corn. At a Buck an Ear! LOL

We were selling Pirate Corn. At a Buck an Ear!

"BUCK" = a dollar or similar national currencies (particularly in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, South Africa and United States).

An "Ear of corn"- The name is not related as you would expect to the ear that we hear with. It comes from the Gothic word for 'husk of corn' which was ahs.

The buccaneers were pirates who attacked Spanish, French, and Dutch shipping in the Caribbean Islands during the late 17th century.

The term buccaneer is now used generally as a synonym for pirate. Originally, buccaneer crews were larger, more apt to attack coastal cities, and more localized to the Caribbean than later pirate crews who sailed to the Indian Ocean on the Pirate Round in the late 17th century.

We were selling "Pirate Corn". At a "Buccaneer". Translated

Not as funny as what I first posted, at least from the Estados Unidos point of view!
(But my clients at Farmers' Market - loved the joke!" 'cause we sold it for only 50 cents an ear and it was NOT Pirate Corn! [Only the joke was.]) (Sold out of 6 bags by Noon!)

Finally, for the Triple Entendre - "Corny" as in 3 Stooges Humor - "Corn·y (kôrn)
adj. corn·i·er, corn·i·est
Trite, dated, melodramatic, or mawkishly sentimental.

"So ridiculous that it makes you laugh" In a Coconut Husk it =s "Monty Python"!

Do I win?

Myanmar!

AYE!

Please be gentle with me, I come to pieces, literally!

BroMaynardG: This is a re-run - for two reasons 1) Talk Like a Pirate Day; and 3) Hanri's curiosity.

BROTHER MAYNARD EXPOSED (No, not that kind of "Exposed", Jeanna!)

Brother Maynard saves the day in The Holy Grail, only to be eaten by the Black Beast of Aaaaarrrrrrggghhh. But only, and I want to make this perfectly clear - only, after translating Joseph of Arimethea’s clue to the last resting place of the most Holy Grail.

Joseph of Arimethea can be found at - http://latter-rain.com/gospel/josear.htm and http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/08520a.htm

Legend has is that Joseph transported the Holy Grail to England, Glastonbury, in 63 A.D. Now, if you believe - - (Say Amen!) Tom Hanks (who invokes this legend in “The DaVinci Code”); then Glastonbury (the site of ruins of a HUGE cathedral) was where Joe Ari went to (well the cathedral was built later). Also, rumored to be at Glastonbury are the graves of both Arthur, King of the Britons and Queen Gueneviere. And a nearby spring is where Launcelot is rumored to have lived out his life as an Eremite (an ‘ermit named ‘erman).

I do not know the geography of England, but if you are interested, then go - Google Yourself! This file is about Brother Maynard! Gee!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brother_Maynard

We all know Eric the ‘alf an Idle, but - http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001385/. For more (I didn’t know there was a “Christmas Vacation II”)!!!!!!!!

FAMOUS MAYNARDS

History tells us that Blackbeard was done in by First Lieutenant Maynard, of the HMS Pearl. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackbeard , also a character in the movie “Blackbeard’s Ghost”, aptly. But this is not a file about “Yellowbeard” http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086618/ (BTW Marty Feldman’s last movie – he died during the filming).

(Ooooooooh!!!!!!!!!! a good question for incoming PythOnline members - -
“What sort of jewelry did Harvey “Blind” Pew (Cleese) wear in the movie “Yellowbeard”? Ans. - ‘e ‘ad acute ‘earing!”

(BTW Cleese and Chapman wrote for Feldman and for David Frost, on the BBC in the early days. Peter Cooke was their mentor (and also comedy team partner of Dudley Moore. That is, before Moore debuted in the US of A with Goldie Hawn and Chevy Chase in “Foul Play”)

(BBTTWW – Chapman, Idle, Cleese – Feldman, Ray Romano’s father (Peter Boyle), Cheech AND Chong, Peter Cooke, David “Major Tom” Bowie, Madeline Kahn (“nice knockers” (from “Young Frankenstein” also with Boyle and Feldman)), and Spike Milligan (from “LOB” as one of the prophets whose disciples liked what Brian was saying better) are also in this movie which was filmed on the “HMS Bounty” from St. Petersburg, FL. It was built to scale but had an extra 50 foot in the middle for the camera crews to film the Marlon Brando version of “Mutiny on the Bounty”).

The movie (Yellowbeard) was a wreck! An HHG, if you will! A-bomb! (as in totally un-clear as opposed to nu-clear).

So, speaking of Maynard, and ship wrecks – what comes to mind? Why naturally - - -

“a three hour tour” (say again, I don't 'ave acute 'earing!) "a three hour tour". Pre-Gilligan, Bob Denver was a character called Maynard G. Krebs (the “G” stood for “Walter”), a beatnik at Dobie’s Pad (think of the kitchen scrubber, a "Dobie Pad" LOL)!

Now this was 1959. No Hippies smoking banana peels on Haight-Ashbury Street. No roaches, no Beatles! AND Monkees? (you have to read the footnote, below) were not ancestors of humans, NOT YET (at least NOT as taught in science class). The TV show was called “The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis”. Dobie was what we today would call a “Preppie” while his best friend, and antithesis, Maynard G. Krebs, was a beatnik. Maynard G’s next job was as First Mate on “The Minnow” (until the weather started getting rough).

Therefore, my identity here is a compilation of the best and the worst of all of the “Maynards”. Brother Maynard, Lieutenant Maynard, and Maynard G. Krebs. All of whom are depicted in the fact or fiction section of the Watford Public Library. Amen! (Crack two)

Also see - Tuesday Weld, Warren Beatty, John “Sergeant Schultz” Banner,(all from Dobie Gillis) and Far Out Space Nuts (post-Gilligan's Island).

(As a real Far Out Spatially Nutty aside, I met Gilligan on the Dinner Theater Circuit, met Mary Ann too (but did not get lucky with her). After their shows, I bought a few drinks for them, just to sit and actually talk with stars of my youth.

But back to reality – I never met a Python that I didn’t like!

Brother Maynard, Gee!

FOOTNOTE

What Rock Star, who is still alive and kicking, and who had a bit role in “Yellowbeard” (as a shark), had to change his name in order to comply with ASCAP rules (entertainers have to have unique names, no duplications) as the Monkees already had a bloke named “Davy Jones”? (“No this is not a trick pirate question about Davey Jones’ Locker.) (Yet, it does kinda fit in weirdly to the topic - at least in the twisted logic of a Pythagorean.)

Ans. Gonna cause a little confusion here, mind if we call you David Bowie? David Bowie! Yes, Space Oddity’s - Major Tom’s REAL name is Davy Jones.

Now to bring this logical loop around full circle. Bowie was in the second Rutles Movie (Can't Buy Me Lunch). Sir Mick Jagger was in “The Rutles – All You Need Is Cash” – a collaboration by Monty Python and Saturday Night Live (with cameos by Mick, Bianca, George Harrison, and even Paul “Rhyming” Simon).

Why does that close the circle? Because the Rolling Stones' song “Angie” was about Bowie’s wife “Angie” with whom Bowie and Jagger (how shall I put this?) menaged to have sex with at the same time. (Gee those Brits are fun!)

Myanmarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

kisch: Here in Russia it's my professional day today. The *Forest Workers Day" ! LOL
Congrats, lumberjacks:-)

Hanri: Mr. George Harrison Sings!!

****************************************

A Children's Pirate Shanty
by Mark "Cap'n Slappy" Summers
(can be sung to the tune of Monty Python's "I'm a Lumberjack and I'm OK" - or make up your own!)

Chorus
I'm a pirate! That I be!
I sail me ship upon the sea!
I stay up late - till half past three!
And that's a peg below me knee!

Yo Ho, my friends I have a tale
of treasure, plunder, sea and sail
my story's bigger than a whale
it gets so deep, ye'll have to bail.

Chorus
I'm a pirate! That I be!
I sail me ship upon the sea!
I stay up late - till half past three!
And that's a peg below me knee!

I like to fish, I like to fight
I like to stay up half the night
When I say "starboard" ye go right!
Me ma, she says, "Ye look a fright!"

Chorus
I'm a pirate! That I be!
I sail me ship upon the sea!
I stay up late - till half past three!
And that's a peg below me knee!

I've got no hand but that's me hook!
I pillage stuff but I'm no crook.
Me booty's in this chest I took.
They'll write about me in a book!

Chorus
I'm a pirate! That I be!
I sail me ship upon the sea!
I stay up late - till half past three!
And that's a peg below me knee!

And that's all there is to this song.
I hope it hasn't been too long.
A pirate's life might just be wrong
So grow up nice and big and strong!

Chorus
I'm a pirate! That I be!
I sail me ship upon the sea!
I stay up late - till half past three!
And that's a peg below me knee!

"Some things in life are bad, they can really make you mad..." and... "always look on the Bright Side of Life..."
