Talk Like a Pirate Day

Well shiver me timbers! Today be International Talk Like a Pirate Day! So if ye not be landlubbers or want to be walking the plank, ye'd best put on yer best pirate gear and hop up to the crow's nest to keep a sharp watch.

Avast, ye mateys! I've put together a list of pirate phrases for ye to use this fine day:

Avast ye - stop and check this out or pay attention
Bilge-sucking - insult
Booty - treasure
Crow's nest - small platform atop the mast where the lookout stands
Davy Jones' Locker - fabled, mythical place at the bottom of the ocean where the evil spirit of Davy Jones brings sailor and pirates to die
Dead men tell no tales - phrase indicating to leave no survivors
Hang 'im from the yardarm - punishment of those captured in battle
Hornswaggle - to defraud or cheat out of money or belongings
Savvy? - do you understand and do you agree?
Scuttle - to sink a ship
Walk the plank - punishment in which person walks off a board jutting over the side of the ship while at sea. The consequence is drowning and a visit to Davy Jones' Locker.
Yo Ho Ho - cheerful exhortation to demand attention
