Legends from our own lunchtimes

Arrrrr...today be talk like a pirate day, which is pretty sad for the blokes that invented it, because their website seems to have imploded. I guess their valiant attempts to be pirates, didn't extend to thieving enough bandwidth to see the day out!
It's a curious thing to talk as one imagines a Pirate would talk, in a sort of rolling East Coast American rendition of a sort of Irish who-knows-what.
In the 17th century, I suspect there'd be little of the American twang, nor much English as we know it (particularly from the Spanish, Portugese and French Pirates)
Who cares? There is absolutely nothing that has a greater point to make than something as pointless as this!
