September 19 is Talk Like A Pirate Day! Don't miss the only day of the year when you can talk like a pirate and not be completely insane!
Okay, so the pirates here finally have their day, since last year it happened about a week before Shaun and I made YWO. Festive logo, and icons on the main page. You may need to refresh it all.

And pirate smilies, of course.

:piratesign: :madpirate: :sparrow: :piratewrite: :pirateread:

For more info (insanity):

The logo looks incredible, really bad ass.

Great job!

YEAH!!! We have signs!!!! ARR!!!

I can't wait. I wanna dress like a pirate but I got nothing.
I'll serenade Venus, I'll serenade Mars,
And I'll burn with the fire of ten million stars,
And in time, and in time,
We will all be stars

This is flippin' amazing.

I'm more of a supporter-of-pirates than a pirate, but we finally have smilies!

I probably won't use them.

Oooh! The logo surprised me, haha! Um, but I'm a ninja... Happy Talk Like A Pirate Day, anyway

I love it how I almost completely copied Midnight's post. I didn't even see it, grrr... *glares at a Midnight's post*

we. must. never. get. rid. of. sparrow...


: And then they made me their chief

: You smell funny

: Captain. Captain Jack Sparrow

: Savvy?

: Gentlemen, I think we've all arrived at a very special place, Spiritually, ecumenically, grammatically.

: She's safe just like I promised, she's all set up to marry norrington just like she promised, and you get to die for her just like you promised, so we're all men of our words really, except, of course, Elizabeth, who is in fact, a woman.

: A wedding? I love weddings. DRINKS ALL AROUND!

: When you marooned me on that God forsaken spit of land you forgot one very important thing lads *everyone leans in* ... I'm Captain Jack Sparrow.

Norrington: *pulls out Jack's sword* And I half expected it to be made of wood. You are without doubt the worst pirate I've ever heard of.
:But you have heard of me.

: Me? I'm dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly. It's the honest ones you want to watch out for, because you can never predict when they're going to do something incredibly... stupid.

If anyone is wondering, my boyfriend's internet is the absolute worst piece of shit in existence, and it causes my computer to slow down significantly anytime I enter the Chatroom. It also causes the chatroom to freeze anyway, so it's a bit futile to attempt to log in while I'm at his place.
