One of my boys and I’s favorite days! We tell piratey jokes that make each other groan.

  • What arrr a pirates favorite games? Gin and Rummy!
  • How much does it cost a pirate to get a piercing? A buck an ear!
  • How much did the pirate pay for his peg leg and hook? An arm and a leg!
  • What has 8 arms and 8 legs? Eight pirates!
  • How did the pirate stop smoking? He used the patch!
Talk Like a Pirate Day


And some that make them laugh hysterically because there are some naughty words or off color things implied in them.

[quote]A pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel sticking out of his fly. The bartender says “What’s the steering wheel for?” The pirate says “Arrrr….it’s driving me nuts!”

A little kid with a speech impediment dresses up as a pirate and goes trick or treating. he knocks on the door of a house and a man answers. “oh, i can see you’re dressed up as a pirate.” the man says. “but where are your buccaneers?” the kid gets really mad, and says “on the sides of my buckin’ head!”[/quote]
