September 19 was International Talk Like A Pirate Day. I thought of some pirate geography jokes for Rik to tell his students. To get the joke, you have to remember that the pirate's favorite letter of the alphabet is R (pronounced AAARRRR!).
What state was the pirate born in? ARkansas
Where does the pirate like to go when he's in South America? ARgentina
Europe? DenmARk and BulgARia (Thanks to Dina for pointing out that ARmenia is actually in Asia...)
Where does the pirate visit the penguins? AntARctica
Where does the pirate see the polar bears? The ARctic
And this is what Rik sent back to me --
If Pirate + Yiddish = Pirish, then the Jewish pirate says: "Sit shivah me timbers!"
You can find many more of these silly jokes here. Avast ye, mateys!
