Inky Beer Factoid: September 19


Cap’n Calla Pegleg and Rough Sailin’ Suzy (thanks Pirate Name Generator for this one!) want to say…

“On another day in 1995, a group o’ buckos (that liked t’ play racquetball together) decided that t’ world needed t’ “Talk Like A Pirate” for a day a year and decided that September 19 would be t’ day. Each year since, t’ maties and people around t’ globe be still talkin’ like pirates. And I firmly believe that everyone needs t’ hear a good pirate joke, so here be one o’ mine.” (for more English to Pirate translations, click here!)

A pirate walks into a bar and the bartender says, “Hey, I haven’t seen you in a while. What happened, you look terrible!” “What do you mean?” the pirate replies, “I’m fine.”
The bartender says, “But what about that wooden leg? You didn’t have that before.”
“Well,” says the pirate, “We were in a battle at sea and a cannon ball hit my leg but the surgeon fixed me up, and I’m fine, really.”
“Yeah,” says the bartender, “But what about that hook? Last time I saw you, you had both hands.”
“Well,” says the pirate, “We were in another battle and we boarded the enemy ship. I was in a sword fight and my hand was cut off but the surgeon fixed me up with this hook, and I feel great, really.”
“Oh,” says the bartender, “What about that eye patch? Last time you were in here you had both eyes.”
“Well,” says the pirate, “One day when we were at sea, some birds were flying over the ship. I looked up, and one of them–yarrgh, er, pooped–in my eye.”
“So?” replied the bartender, “what happened? You couldn’t have lost an eye just from that!” “Well,” says the pirate, “I really wasn’t used to the hook yet.”

Since pirates walk into bars so often, people create beers after them and their likeness. Here are a few!
