Talk Like a Pirate with Us This Friday
Ahoy there, mateys! Be ye notified that this 19th day of the month of September that all ye savvy WebRing lubbers be invited to partake in International Talk Like a Pirate Day.

Ever since humorist Dave Barry first brought it to the attention of the world in 2002, ITLPD has taken off like so many buccaneers scurrying for their share of the booty.

John "Ol' Chumbucket" Baur and Mark "Cap'n Slappy" Summers of Corvallis, Oregon (WebRing's home state), first thought of the idea during a racquetball game when one of the two yelled out "Aaaar!" after getting hurt.

Their idea has spurred a huge movement of piracy that has only further exploded with the popularity of Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie series. Each year, Cap'n Slappy, Ol' Chumbucket and their web wench list the scores of ways other freebooters toast this unique day. Check 'em out here.

Here be "aaarrr" challenge to ye!
This Friday, talk like a pirate on WebRing - whether that be on yer blog, forum, or in the Shoutbox.
Need help with yer lingo? Check out these sites:

An' if ye scallywags ain't got time to talk like a pirate or need inspiration, check out these pirate rings. (Don't make us keelhaul ye. Aaarrr!)

Contest Winner - Webster on the Web!
A big congratulations to biloxibeachboy for his winning entry in the Webster on the Web contest!

Although the sole entry, he created a truly fun back story befitting the WebRing teddy bear. We encourage you to go check out the fun page that biloxibeachboy created.

If you have an alternative story you'd like to share or a story for a completely unrelated stuffed buddy, feel free to create a page and submit it to the Webster on the Web ring. I'm sure Webster would love to have other stuffed critters join him.

For his entry, biloxibeachboy wins the complete WebRing Gear package.
