Oh, that explains the stares.

Remember, it's "Talk like a Pirate Day," not "Swear like a Sailor Day." Easy mistake.

I can't imagine a pirate not swearing like a sailor. Unless the pirate is German or Japanese. ;?P

Germans don't swear? I heard they enjoyed their profanity as much as the next culture, but only had a very few words to choose from (pig, dog, poopie, and that was about it).

I'm sure they do, particularly now after 60 years of bad American influence ;?P

I've read enough anecdotes about German soldiers' reluctance to swear to make me believe that it's more highly frowned upon in Germany, especially during the Third Reich

Every day is Swear Like a Sailor Day in my office. Especially when the company-wide network fails 15 times.

I agree that it's hard to imagine a pirate who's not profane.
I mean, "Arrgghh, walk the plank you freaking jerk" just doesn't work for me.
