While some choose to say things like "aye, matey" and "arrrrrr," I prefer to focus on the present-day Pirates, of the Pittsburgh variety.

Did I get it right?

Anyway... As it turns out, I'm not the only one who celebrates this holiest of holidays. The Twitter world was, well, atwitter with folks getting in on the action. Here are some of my favorites:

If you have some examples of your own, feel free to post them in the comments below. Enjoy!
