Ahoy, matey ... oh, forget it

In what is one of the most useful bits of journalism I've seen this week, Slate answers the burning question: Did pirates really say 'Arrrrr'?

The answer might surprise you. Then maybe not. But would you prefer that I post a link to a stopry about a kid who was forbidden by the town council from flying the Jolly Roger at his sixth birthday party? OK, smartypants, here it is: Skull and crossbones banned

Aaaargh. My timbers have been shivered.
