I love this shirt both for Talk Like a Pirate Day and to wear out on the boat during the summer. I agree that I'd prefer a different color than black for summer days out on the ocean, but it looks so good that way I'll suffer through!

Thanks for the totally awesome shirt. I'm working hard on adding to my obscure seafaring reference garb for the fishing trips. This will make an excellent addition!

forever fighting the urge to buy something just because it is cheap and cool...wait, it's cheap and cool, let me click that big yellow button!

Can someone explain how "Aye" means "Word"? That translation makes no sense whatsoever.

By Jove, he's right! Somebody get out the American-English dictionary! (Not that there are really any English pirates anyway, so it's sort of a moot point.)

For this you have to know slang in the 90's.
I still know people who say this.

From Urban Dictionary:

Word-
1) well said
2)said in agreement
3) can be used as a greeting, hey whats up

You're kidding right- there were plenty of British (not just English) pirates... almost all the ones speaking English would have been British.

Ever hear of Blackbeard? William Kidd? Henry Morgan? Sir Francis Drake?

Most of the ones famous in the Americas were British.

Privateers were just pirates hired by the King.

Aye- and whilst we're talking of old English. All those people that use the word "Ye" to mean "The" are using it incorrect.

You know- as in "Ye Olde Tavern".

The "Y" in Ye is not a "Y" but a thorn. A letter nolonger used in English... and doesn't really look that much like a Y either.

Incidentally the thorn letter was pronounced "Th" so "Ye Olde Tavern" spelt incorrectly with a Y would have been pronounced "The Olde Tavern".

People stop using "Ye" to mean "The" - at no time in the history of the English language did "Ye" mean "The".

Technically most were only "technically pirates
during peace time- they were treated as war vessels during declared periods of war.

Of course- the person getting attacked always considered them pirates.

Most pirates were essentially an ancient form of economic warfare. Disrupt the trade of the enemy.

Correction, matey! The derby was "no text only" meaning text was allowed but a graphical element also needed to be included.

I think they mean "Word" as it was commonly used (is it still?) as a term of agreement, like "Word up". Agreement with what is being said, which does match with "Aye" as "Yes".

If you do buy it, please don't slap any men unless their eyes fail to continue down the page. Well, I suppose you might have to slap them anyway.

Regarding the simplicity of the shirt: I'd like to say I'm glad to see silkscreen-worthy art. I'm not saying that I don't appreciate the talent of the more enthusiastic designers I've seen here; but I for one don't care to have my front-side look like the inside of the Sistine Chapel.

I find it interesting that you pick on the phrase "Shiver Me Timbers" when - The use of "me" instead of "my", which is common to many British regional accents, is commonly known.

Yet you choose to let slide 'sup, word or cash money.

I bought a shirt that was shipped on 2/22 according to woot. I believe the shirt got to my door before FedEx tracking said it left Texas.

Aye means "I agree" in the "yes" -type way.

Word is short for "Word is born", which means "truth was spoken" which means, "I agree".

So someone makes a statement that is true/you agree with. You answer with "word". Or "Aye."
