For any of you who are going to involve yourself in this somewhat inane occasion, we give you an excerpt from one of the many pirate films that Robert Newton appeared in as a lesson. Newton is the quintessential Long John Silver who popularized that “Arrrr!” sound that everyone will be making today.
The excerpt is 8 mins. long. Start at about 0:22 and get a lesson in how to talk like a pirate from the master himself. Stop when you can’t stand it anymore. Pfft!
