While teaching a Judicial Colloquium at the Fall Judicial Conference last Monday, I asked the judges in my class to identify themselves by saying (1) their name, (2) in what court they serve, (3) why they signed up for the colloquium and (4) something that a pirate would say. They indulged me and NOT ONE if those learned jurists knew that Monday was Talk Like a Pirate Day. I handed out copies of the Dave Barry column in which all is revealed. Aaaaaargh.

You are never implying, Father Steve, that this "Talk like a Pirate Day" is... *like... an official day!?! I thought Gift Horse was horsing around!

(4) something that a pirate would say.

I don't like to have to kill nobody without they ain't no chance of no gold in it for me.
