Ahoy Matey!

Modern day pirate who stole my heart.

Ahoy Matey!

It’s national Talk Like A Pirate Day on September 19th.  In the spirit of day, I came across these pirate jokes deep within a buried treasure.  Normally, I would cite where I found these jokes but that wouldn’t be very pirate like.  So, let’s just say they came from the back of a child’s menu. Cough, I mean it was under the treasure.

Q: How much does it cost for a pirate to get earrings?

A: A buccaneer!

Q: What is a pirate’s favorite cookie?

A: Ships Ahoy!

Q.  How much did the pirate pay for his peg leg and hook?

A: An Arm and a leg!

Q: Why did the pirate’s phone go “beep, beep, beep”?

A: Cause he left it off the hook!

Q: Why are pirates so mean?

A: I don’t know, they just aarrgghhh!

Q: What is a pirate’s favorite letter?

A: RRRRRRRRR!

Q: Why does it take pirates so long to learn the alphabet?

A: Because they get stuck at “C”

Q: Why couldn’t’ the pirate play cards?

A: Because he was sitting on the deck!

Q: What hook can’t you hang your clothes on?

A: Captain Hook!

By telling puzzle jokes we are encourage our students to think and have fun playing with words.  These could be great places for students to now make up their own jokes.  Please refer to the following posts for ideas on how to incorporate reading and writing for Talk Like A Pirate Day:
