The book Blackbeard Reconsidered: Mist's Piracy, Thache's Genealogy by Baylus Brooks is available from Amazon.com.
Ahoy there! Once again it's Talk Like a Pirate Day, and this year I've turned Britain's Princess Eugenie into a pirate using this online English-to-Pirate translator from the original Talk Like a Pirate Day website.
So here's a quote from the princess, translated into pirate-speak:
"How do I play t' princess thin'? I don't really. I don't like talkin' about it much and find it annoyin' when people say thin's like, "Oh, you're t' princess." One o' me best buckos jokin'ly says, "Hi, Princess," and I say, "Shut up". It be one o' t' thin's that bugs me most in t' world."
Aar, maybe she'd be happier as a pirate than a princess.
