    I've noticed a few people's 'tars sporting eye patches. So I'm just wondering if pirate day is on it's way?

    Last years April Fools was pirate day.

    I think the eye patch thing is the newest theme put on by the demi's. I've noticed too.

    I thought it was sometime in September or October...

    You're talking about "Talk Like A Pirate" Day, right?

    I know of that particular day (we drove all the teachers at school crazy with it last year :D ) but I'm talking about something different. Last year on April Fools day, every member's ranking was given a pirate equivalent - "Matey", "Coxswain", "Town Clerk" etc...

    I suspect it might be in honour of a certain eyepatch-clad poster becoming a Demi-God. But I might be wrong.

    Arrr!

    This pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel in his pants.

    The bartender says, "Hey, you know you've got a steering wheel in your pants?"

    The pirate says, "Yarrr..... it's drivin' me nuts!"

    That's because I'm not a Demi – I've got two working eyes, see.

    And while we're on the subject, do you know why pirates sound like they're from Bristol? Because they Arrr!

    Sorry. :eek:

    Quite observant of you, my friend! Top of the class...

    Who said that? Who turned out the lights? :D

    As for contributing, I had been putting it off for almost a year, and it was time. :cool: My ranking was nice and exclusive, yes, but now I can move up the ranks secretly and other members will eventually wonder what my actual rank is, just like Mr. Anderson and the others... ;) :cool:

    P.S. Arrr matey.

    Actually no, ORIGIN Greek peirates, from peirein ‘to attempt, attack’.

    Phew, glad I found that. Now nobody knows I was attempting an already done crap joke :)

    That would be good as the official line, but really we were out quail hunting this week.
