Friday Fun!

Okay, this is a post just for fun. I repeat, just. for. fun.

Recently, there was some discussion about how Talk Like a Pirate Day cannonballed its way into our Wednesday night children's church program for one brief arghhh-inducing second. There were people who didn’t care for it, and people who did (like me).

My office has been celebrating Talk Like a Pirate Day for the past six years. Seriously.

“Arghhh, matey, hand over that memo and no one gets stapled!”

So, I put on my thinking cap and came up with some Baptist alternatives to Talk Like a Pirate Day. Here we go! (I repeat, this is just for fun. I am NOT recommending you tell children to “Talk like a Pharisee.”)

Talk like an Angel

Talk like a Prophet

Talk like an Apostle

Talk like a Wiseman

Talk like a Psalmist

Talk like a Roman

Talk like a Pharaoh

Talk like a Shepherd

Talk like a Disciple

Talk like a Samaritan

Talk like a Carpenter

Talk like an Innkeeper

Talk like a Fisherman

Talk like an Arc Builder

Talk like a Tax Collector

Talk like an Israelite King

Talk like a Virtuous Queen

Talk (or Bray) like a Camel

Talk like a Patriarch/Matriarch

Talk like a Man Trapped in a Whale

Talk like You’ve Been Wandering in the Wilderness for a Really Long Time

Thanks, folks! I'm here all week!

hilarious! here's a couple more...

Talk Like An Egyptian
(we could even have a musical theme for that one--"oh-way-oh")

Talk Like There's No Tomorrow Because the Sun Is Standing Still Today

Talk Like a Donkey to His Numbskull Owner

Talk Like Only a Linguistics Genius Could at the Top of the Tower of Babel

Joy - I debated adding the Egyptian one, too. So funny, and comes with its own theme music as you pointed out!

I was also going to mention Balaam, but...I couldn't figure out how to say it. I figured I was already pushing the envelope as "fisherman" is perilously close to "pirate." Whew! So far, no one's called me on it!

I'd just love to hear how some of those characters talk! I think I may be rendered speechless on some of those days. =)
