Shiver Me Timbers

Avast! Today be International Talk Like a Pirate's Day. Arrr! That's right ye varmit scums. Dust off yer boots, grab ye selfs a rum and drink that cellar dry. But first make sure ye know yer name or you be walkin the plank to visit Davey Jones' Locker. Arrr!

My pirate name is:

Mad Mary Read

Every pirate is a little bit crazy. You, though,
are more than just a little bit. Even through
many pirates have a reputation for not being
the brightest souls on earth, you defy the stero-
types. You've got taste and education. Arr!

Get your own pirate name from
part of the network

What do your students think when they hear you talking this way, LOL

jillie said...

LOL! I am Mad Bess Roberts.

First time I've seen this one...hahaha ;o)

Carla said...

Tracey, They already think I'm crazy, so this is just icing on the cake.

Jillie, I like the ring of that...Mad Bess. Ha, ha!

John said...

I'm Captain John Flint...of course. "Even though there's no legal rank on a pirate ship, everyone recognizes you're the one in charge. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!"


Debbie said...

LOL Happy Pirate's Day!!

Fede said...

Since we all realize that you are contagious, I would like to know if you are taking any action to close this issue...
Hook, the captain.

Steffi said...

Arrrhg. I be Iron Mary Kid. Tough as nails, somewhat bright. Now show yer colours.

Carla said...

Hey Captain Flint, does that mean you're going to man the ship for us?

Debbie, Thanks

Carla said...

Fede, What do you think I am? Some kind of disease? Taking my vitamin C, perhaps that will help.

Steffi, Betty Bess Kid, that sounds like a great name.

Carla said...

Annie, Thanks for the tip. I'll have to check out her history.

Dawn, Tough as nails and bright...I don't doubt it one bit. Welcome aboard.
