Talk Like a Pirate Day be celebrated by Long John SiIvaGunner as a swashbucklin' channel event in 2016.

Theme

Every aspect o' the channel be decked in sea-farin' lingo on this day. SiIvaGunner set sail as "Long John SiIvaGunner", which be a reference t' Long John Silver in the book Treasure Island.

The channel description be:

Here be lyin' a fine selection of mostly Nintendo shanties!

I do not own to any o' the shanties heard in these live performances. Sailin' and plunderin' fer shanties is quite a time-consumin' voyage fer me (especially if ye be takin on the S.S. Wii U and H.M.S. 3DS), but feel free to leave shanty requests or suggestions thru personal message in a bottle or thru carrier pigeon, and I'll see what aye can do!

Banner ARRtwork is from me favorite pirate pastime, "Tengami".

(All of the shanties are hauled in by a team of hard workin' pirates who have given the OK. Also, please keep yer requests to a minimum, or you'll be walkin' the plank!)

These changes were sent t' Davy Jones' locker the next day.

Shanties sang

Every shanty SiIva sang on this day be havin' a pirate rig, mostly "Rattle Me Bones" from the 1998 commercial or "You Are A Pirate" from LazyTown. The shanties be described like so:

  • "Music" became "Shanty"
  • "Composer" became "Composarr" (with a varying amount of Rs)
  • "Performed by" became "Parrrformed by"
  • "Arranger" became "Arrrranger"
  • "Playlist" became "Treasure Map"
  • "Platform" became "Plank"
  • The catchphrase became variations of "Please be readin' the channel description."
