    The world's most honest holiday. Three cheers for you, you fatherless son of a seasoned squabbie.
    The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

      Yarrrr! I'll have me some o' that!

      Actually, last summer I was working at a theme park where we had a "Pirate Festival", which required us to talk to like pirates for a full hour every day whilst entertaining the kiddies. At first it seemed quite good fun, but after the second or third day the novelty quickly wore off. It really hurts the throat after a while.

      Grrr, Jim-lad!! Hoist the Jolly Roger and set sail for the Spanish Main. Pan lives? I'll keel-haul the lotta yer, etc.

        Yarrrr, 'tis hard on the gullet!

        Wonder how Robert Newton kept it up through two pirate films, 'Treasure Island' and 'Blackbeard the Pirate?' Maybe his voice was close to that in real life.
