Acme::Lingua::Pirate::Perl - be writin' thy Perl like a swarthy sea-dog
Then use the following bits o' argot to pepper up yer Perl:
die- add " her" if you like
a treasure) for
Davy Jones' Lockerfor
the whale) for
a hornpipeor (
the hornpipe) for
the rope's endfor
You also have a wide range of traditional pirate vocabulary to scatter through your code and make it all the more piratical, although they won't cause anything to actually happen, except perhaps terrifying any landlubbers who happen to read your code.
arr (or arrr, arrrr...)
yar (or yarr, yarrr...)
curse thy deadlights
shiver me timbers
splice the mainbrace
ye scurvy dog(s)
yo ho (ho) (optionally hyphenated)
These are case-insensitive and can be followed by a non-word character (i.e., space or punctuation), allowing you to mix and match at will. Examples:
AVAST! YE SCURVY DOG! Arrrrrr. Shiver me timbers matey. Yar! Curse thy deadlights, sprog! yo-ho-ho, scallywags

Take heed! September 19th be International Talk Like A Pirate Day! An' if thy code ain't shipshape, ye'll be walkin' the plank!
Earle Martin <hex [at] cpan [dot] org>, but really Simon Wistow <simon [at] twoshortplanks [dot] com>, because this is a straight rip of his Acme::Lingua::Strine::Perl!
It's all london.pm's fault, of course.
This module is dedicated to Captain Jack Sparrow, the best pirate I have ever seen.
