Back in my day, ye used to be able to leave yer hatches open.

Sweets used t' cost a penny a thousand, not the overpriced rubbish ye gets nowadays.

We 'ad proper tunes back then an' all.

Neighbourly

Postby black bart on Tue Aug 22, 2006 9:07 am

YYYAARRR Pirates used to be neighbourly in My day. We'd all gather round and sing shanties and play shuv-happeny for hours on end...

...then we'd get bored and start killin each other...but in a neighbourly sort o way!

In my day pirates used to talk to people.

Nowadays, they board a ship an' slit everyone's throat without even a by-your-leave.

Rude, I's call it.

wench

Postby black bart on Tue Aug 22, 2006 11:24 am

HHAARRR...in My day a Man were a Man and a Wench were a Wench and n'er the twain would ever meet unless it were 'bring a Wench on board' day which fell every fourteenth Micklemass.

Then we danced and danced...no actually we were chasin the wenches round the deck...twere very romantic.

It brings a tear to my eye to remember...happy days.
