Last Week's Winner
It be our last meetin' when we played the PSB Arrr-iginal Game, Bests and Worsts. We asked ye landlubbers ter come up with a fittin' replacement for a hand, if ye be havin' the misfortune of losin' it. We be takin' a look at yer lily-livered responses.
Firstly, we be wantin' ter extend a shout-out ter all ye cockroachers who ended yer post with "Arrr" or some variant. It be pleasin' ter the captains. Especially when in the rest of yer comments, there was nary a sign of pirate speak. We say ter ye, "Avast!"
Next, we be turnin' ter Big A. His answer be scissors, and 'tis a fine choice. But, it still be a tad too sharp fer the likes of us, especially if we be havin' an itch on the nose.
Tony be sayin' a Wii remote would suffice. Aye, 'tis true, but batteries be scarce on the high seas. Even scarcer than Wii's. So, nay, Tony shan't be the winner.
But, we be decidin' that the winner be...Pep! Arr, his choice of a fryin' pan be just the thing ter fry a fish caught out on the briny, or ter smack the face of an intruder. And who among ye could turn down pancakes? Aye, Pep be the winner! Huzzah!
This Week's Game
Unfortunately, this Saturday is not International Talk Like a Pirate Day. It's not even International talk Like a Hispanic Day. However, the United Nations is holding a summit, and that at least has some international flair to it.
But in general, UN Summits are not the most interesting. For example, the UN Security Council just had a resolution to say nuclear weapons are bad. Snoozer! So, to liven things up, we're going to play another round of the PSB Original Game, Little-Known Facts, the game where you make up something and pass it on as fact.
Give us a little-known fact about the United Nations.
The United Nations was incorrectly spelled the Untied Nations in the founding documents. The typo was not found until 1956 and it took two resolutions before the name was officially corrected.
Now it's your turn. Remember, we have a loose interpretation of "fact" and of "quotation marks".
