I laughed out loud when I read today’s (well, not really today’s. 11 August 1994) Calvin & Hobbes comic.
That, my friends, is comedy gold.
well actually talk like a pirate day is September 19.
I realize that. I meant this is in honor of talk like a pirate day, even though it’s not today.
Calvin and Hobbes, without a doubt, is one of the greatest comics (and books) ever published. Bill Watterson is a pure genius.
Oh, right! Talk Like a Pirate Day is coming up! Yay! Er, um, “Avast!” doesn’t sound right. Well, whatever. “Yay!” in Pirate.
We should all start practicing now so we’ll be experienced pirate talkers when the day arrives.
