Okay, perhaps (or maybe not) the least substantive post I'll ever do, but just too good to pass up. As reported in today's Southern Illinoisan TODAY, not tomorrow, not yesterday, but TODAY is International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
For tips on how to talk like a pirate, dress like a pirate, have a party like a pirate, or donate to the victims of Hurricane Katrina not-so-much-like-a-pirate, visit the official website at
So I envision all kinds of conversations like, "Avast, methinks I spy Fitzgerald and his maties storming the offices. Man the shredders boys!"

Too funny.

Fritchey, you have just jumped the shark. Your blog is officially dead.

And you think it's easy to jump a shark with a peg leg? I should make you walk the plank, then we'd see who's jumping sharks.

All kidding aside, look I've thrown a lot of substantive stuff up here since starting this venture. So if I want to throw in the occasional Talk Like a Pirate post, I'm going to. So instead of just trying to criticize, feel free to add some constructive input on any number of the other issues that I have, and will continue to, put forward on this blog.

Now get back to work, ye landlubber.

Stupid pirate haters. Keep up the good work Rep. Even with the occasional pirate post (which made me laugh), you still have way more good stuff here than anybody else is doing.

Having just gone to the pirate website, my next move was to put it into Outlook for next year. WAY better than anything the folks at Hallmark have come up with. The best part is that once you start talking like that you don't want to stop. ARRRRRRR!!!!!
