Avast, me hearties! Here be my marketin’ treasures
For ye lubbers who may not be savvy, this day be Talk Like a Pirate Day! At Fletcher Prince we’ll be smartly yammerin’ like pirates the live long day. Arrr, and to be sure we’ll layin’ down the marketing advice for ye like so many pieces of eight on a dead man’s chest. Aye, ’tis true.
There be treasure in this ol’ blog, aye, if ye but seek it. Just not today, not on this post, leastways. All ye will find on deck today is a lot of pirate blather. And these jokes.
What do pirates do with their smart phones? They scan Q – ARRRRR — codes!
Why do pirates always carry a bar of soap? Give up? Because if they are shipwrecked, they can always wash ashore.
Ye can’t take a picture of a pirate with a wooden leg. Know why? Because wooden legs don’t take pictures, that’s why.
Now I am really sorry about that. Truly I am. To make it up to you, I mean “ye,” here’s a fun link that is not corny at all: Find out yer Pirate Name here (mine’s Dirty Mary, to be surrrre)
Did you know that some of the most infamous pirates sailing the high seas were lasses? ‘Tis true! Anne Bonny, Mary Read, Ching Shih and Grace O’Malley were some notorious female pirates.
If you haven’t had enough pirate-talk yet, be mindful of the Facebook setting that ye can change to Pirate Talk.
