Facebook Piracy

Did you ever think to yourself the following statement which immediately follows this upcoming mark of questioning? "Facebook is great and all, but it could really use a strong dose of Pirate-styled language to really separate itself from all those other social-networking sites."

I know I never thought that. But, nonetheless, I'm pretty happy that the language setting on Facebook can be changed to English-Pirate. Just scroll down to the bottom of any page, and click on the blue-fonted word that probably says English. Such clicking with open up a menu of sorts, and, upon such prompting, search and click on the one called English Pirate.

Doing this will open up a whole new parrot-infested world of Facebook. Instead of an Inbox, you have a Bottle O' Messages. And instead of Friends, you can have Me Hearties. Because everyone knows that inboxes and friends are so 2005.

I think this is a fitting tribute to the recently passed Talk Like a Pirate Day. But, more importantly, it may be considered an acceptable form of service by the Flying Spaghetti Monster, the universe's most benevolent flying carbohydrate deity. And remember: Stop global warming; become a pirate.
