Avast there, you scurvy dogs
As you make your plans to commemorate International Talk Like a Pirate Day on Sept. 19, mateys, you will need to keep this distinction in mind:
The classic pirate utterance is spelled Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, with as many or few r’s as you prefer. The spelling sometimes seen, Arrrrrrrrrrrrrgh, represents the strangled cry of distress, frustration, anger or despair and is not properly piratical.
Also, it is my painful duty to inform you, is you think that Arrrrrrrrrrrr or any variation on it is fresh and original in a headline about pirates or pirate argot, you are badly mistaken.
