Talking to Myself

Tuesday, June 24, 2008
One thing that happens on motorcycle trips is that I talk to myself while I'm riding. I'm not able to spend a small fortune on a motorcycle that has a radio (only a few do), and I'm not going to wear headphones while riding, so I'm pretty much stuck making my own entertainment.

Today's trip left found me talking to myself and making up jokes about pirates. Jokes such as:

Q: Where does a pirate learn to fight?
A: In the ARRRRmy.

You can see where I'm going with this, right? Here's some of the gems I came up with:

Q: Where does a pirate go to spend time with nature?
A: The ARRRRboretum.

Q: What carries the blood to a pirate's blackened heart?
A: His ARRRRteries.

Q: What is a pirate's ultimate ship?
A: Noah's ARRRRk.

And, my favorite:

Q: Where does a pirate get his gas from?
A: The ARRRRco.

Q: How much does he pay?
A: An ARRRRm... and a peg leg.

These may or may not be original. The format certainly isn't new, but I'm not sure if these particular jokes have ever been told by anyone. Let me assure you, though, I was giggling in my helmet as I was blasting down the freeway.

Q: What did the pirate say to Burton?
A: "Quite typecasting me! Pirates have feelings too, you heartless cad."

Then his parrot repeated what he said and he took a swig of rum.
