It's arrrgh! not arrr.
Wish I could find a link to the sound logo for a local sports radio station. It's the best arrrgh! I've heard yet.

The athletic teams from East Carolina University in nearby Greenville, NC are the Pirates because Blackbeard (the ultimate pirate) lived and died on the eastern NC coast.

AVAST! I do be joining y'all to sail on the high seas, though I be thinkin' that that thar's a cross between a cow and a penguin.
My job shall be to raise morale by looking PRETTY! And cooking, and serving the rum! And whoever throws up on the rations gets a beating.

------------------------------------------
RPG launcher bought in third world country illegally - $10
Landmines - $50 per
Attack/track dogs bred 1st class - $250-500 per
Highpowered assault rifles - $600 per
The look on your face when I show up on your doorstep with a bigfoot - ... Priceless

Arr, if I be in charge of gettin' new recruits, then here's 5 reasons to become a pirate!

1. We have more treasure than ye.

2. You don't need ta use things like grammer and spelling. And you can say "ARRRGGHH!!!"

3.We're cooler than ninjas!

4. We can plunder and stuff.

5. RUM!!!


It's the best I could come up with cap'n. See if it'll get any crew fer us!
