Like a Pirate
A new twist on my favorite holiday: International Talk Like a Pirate Day!
About this creation
Please feel free to look over the images and skip the verbiage.

September 19 was International Talk Like A Pirate Day (ITLAPD) -- without a doubt, the best holiday ever!

Until members of my favorite international spinning top forum got hold of it, that is. We wasted no time in hijacking the holiday for our own. (That's what pirates do.)

To us, September 19 is "International Spin a Top Like A Pirate Day" now! I memorialized the occasion in this quick little 16x16 vignette.



My pirate's balancing a top in his hook after a "boomerang" -- a basic throwing top trick expertly demonstrated in this video from our ITLAPD forum page...



∧ Warning: Try this with a pirate patch over one eye, and you might end up needing one.

Another perfectly good hour wasted...











OK, OK, the waves are pretty cheesy, but what do you expect for an hour?

BTW, most of this vignette came straight from my Bin of Parts I'll Never Use. Then along came ITLAPD.

Aye, never say never, me maties! Arrrgh!

Thanks, Clayton! It's a figure I was given but thought I'd never use -- but that was before I knew about Talk Like a Pirate Day.

Quoting Nils O. It looks cool, the waves, too! Great job! :-))
Thanks, Nils! Getting more interested in vignette building after trying the 16x16 format. This space seems to open up interesting theatrical possibilities while keeping the scenes simple enough to take in at a glance. Coming soon: A 16x16 drama set in a North Carolina river flood in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence.

Quoting Sven ;o) Was much fun reading and the vignette turned out pretty nice :) Really like it my good friend!
Thanks, Sven! Curious, is it possible to talk like a pirate in German? To my knowledge, the famous old pirate movies "establishing" what pirates used to sound like were all in English and modeled the partly made-up dialect on one from England.
