UPDATE: Craig Ferguson on CBS’ Late Late Show remembered Talk Like a Pirate Day. That’s appropriate, I suppose, since having a Scottish accent gets you a long way toward talking like a pirate — Scotsmen are good at rrrolling their arrrs. As a thanks to Craig, here’s a joke from tonight’s monologue (from memory):

Deal or No Deal is back. … This has to be the dumbest game show ever. "Do you want money or more money?" … It’s like "Let’s Make a Deal" for stupid people.

 I just love the Ferguson monologues. For more reasons why, see this earlier post. Mmm, good grog.
