No, probably not, it's liable to irritate people and that is not something I would like to do.



EDIT: Did pirates actually talk like that?

Since when did pirates say "yarrrr"?  Isn't that Germans?

I thought pirates said "arrhhh!"

Not that I'm an expert, admittedly...

That reverse correlation between global temperature and number of pirates someone posted somewhere was dead funny.

I'd say it's "Ha-harrr!" myself, preferably followed by a 'Jimlad'. The 'Y' was put at the front by The Simpsons primarily, and it's very wrong.

Pirates have really taken off in the past few years haven't they? Probably down to Pirates of the Caribbean (2 and 3 recently finished filming, btw)

There's two guys who go to our local night club who always dress as pirates. One of them looks like a slightly overweight, short Johnny Depp

I didn't mean that I generally talk like a pirate, I just meant that I like to talk like a pirate. And shall do so entirely upon my own whim.
