10 THINGS I HAVE TO ASSUME THAT PIRATES REALLY SAID

The only research put into this was years of pop culture observation.
  1. 1.
    Ahoy!
    As in "Ships ahoy!" and later, the tastier "Chips ahoy!"
  2. 2.
    Avast ye!
    I know not what this means.
  3. 3.
    Yo ho.
    Kermit the Frog uses the evolved "Hi ho," in his day-to-day speech.
  4. 4.
    Booty.
    Treasured innuendo.
  5. 5.
    Shiver me timbers.
    More innuendo.
  6. 6.
    Thar she blows.
    Thar it is. Right thar.
  7. 7.
    Walk the plank
    I hope pirates really said this.
  8. 8.
    Arrrggghhh!
    A pirate's favorite letter.
  9. 9.
    Aye, aye.
    Unless they have an eyepatch, then it's just, "aye."
  10. 10.
    Scurvy scum.
    Great pirate insult. Cured with Vitamin C.
