Oo Arr

Everybody loves pirates. These ones were for an issue of Horrible Histories.

Apparently one of my ancestors had a duel, a real old-fashioned pistols-at-dawn affair, with a character called "Digby the Pirate", according to family legend. Nobody ever heard from Digby again, but his duelling pistols are now owned by some cousins of mine, I believe. And we call that "murder" nowadays. Crazy!

  1. Isn't "oo arr" farmers, and "yarr" pirates?

  2. I dunno. I always thought all pirates came from Cornwall.

  3. You never see farmers and pirates in the same place at once... Suspicious...
