Here’s the scuttlebutt, scallywags: Today be Talk Like a Pirate Day! Yarr!
Meet Pirate Limber-Jack.
Me latest video features a Limber-Jack dancin’ toy. It’s believed this charming toy originated in the old country of Ireland. Immigrants brought their Limber-Jacks with them to America.
My poor Limber-Jack was stark naked when I bought him.
So, I dressed him up for Talk Like a Pirate Day.
It’s obvious in the video that I need a lot more practice hitting the board for my Limber-Jack to have better rhythm. I’m working on it!
For more pirate talk fun, check out my blog post from 2013.
If you’re interested in meeting Vlad, a 300-year-old pirate rat with some cool ditties, check out this interview from 2011. Vlad is kids’ favorite character in our Monster Moon adventure series, which is written under the pen name, BBH McChiller.
What are you doing on Talk Like a Pirate Day?
I’d love to hear your thoughts. What’s your favorite pirate term? Do you have a favorite pirate joke you’d like to share with us? I’d love to hear from you!
Good grief. Too much fun was had in the making of this video. I love how you dressed him up.

Aw, thank you, Patricia! Next, I’m going to dress him up for Halloween! 🙂
You are so funny! The pirate seems like a family member…long lost cousin?
Michael’s twin or a younger version of George? LOL!
Bad puns but funny!
Do your kids ever tell you that you have more fun than they ever did?
Thanks, Alex! Nope, the kids are too busy living their lives to notice the fun I’m having! Guess they should take time to smell the pirates, eh? 🙂
