If I were an anthropomorphized bunny pirate, I would
hope that krakens would be friendly sea creatures like the one in this print.
Especially if they were accompanied by merbunnies. That would be rad.
Avast, me Internets! Once again, it's that most favorable geek holiday known as Talk Like A Pirate Day! Aye, it be that time o' the year where we be encouraged t' whip out our best Blackbeard impression upon unsuspecting whelps (while knockin' aft some rum and/or grog, natch.) And what better way t' start off TLAP Day than with a post about that most prized o' piratical accessories, t' pirate hat?
Sound good to you? I hope so, because I think I just broke the free online Pirate-English translator. So without further ado, let's get to it:
Well, if you're going to do a post about pirate hats, you might as well start off with a basic-yet-still-awesome one, right?
But that doesn't mean we have to just stick with those, seeing as there's loads of other kinds of tricorns out there, like this cream-colored mini-tricorn fascinator kind of thing.
And who says you have to settle for just a pirate hat when you can wear the whole dang ship?
Pretty sweet, huh? It makes me think of the Flying Dutchman (from the stories, not from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.) Well, if the Flying Dutchman ever came equipped with a ginormous silk rose, anyway.
And now, because I have been wanting to post about this since I found them over this past spring, allow me to bust out one more instance of piratical speech, 'cause here be the finest pirate hat my eyes have e'er seen:
It's a beaut, ain't it? In fact, the milliner responsible for this has a whole honkin' selection of different pirate hats, so you should definitely check them out. True, you won't be able to get your hands on one of those hats in time for TLAP Day '11, but at least you'll be all set for TLAP '12.
And on that note, time to fire up The Arrogant Worms and get to it. Happy Talk Like A Pirate Day, and see you Wednesday!
