Audio submission for Newgrounds' "Talk Like a Pirate Day 2009" competition. A little insight into Pirate Dave's day job as a patent attorney (junior partner). Sound effects from soundsnap. Script as below:

CAPTAIN: YARR! Enter, fellow murderous scab of the seven seas, yahar!

CREW1: Err... Hey there, Dave--

CAPTAIN: What kin I do fer ye, first mate Hookhands?

CREW1: It's Manuel, actually.

CAPTAIN: D'yarr! Tis no proper name for a pirate! Ye be needin' some HOOK or BLOOD or UNPLEASANT in thar!

CREW1: Aha, yeah about that - We've been talking. The "crew" and I?

CAPTAIN: Yarr, ye've been talking behind me back yarr.

CREW: And uhh.... we want you to hand over the hat.

CAPTAIN: Yarr. What hat?

CREW: THE hat. On your head.

CAPTAIN: Ye be wantin' the CAPTAIN'S HAT?

CREW: We weren't exactly sure how to tell you this--

CAPTAIN: YE BE WANTIN' THE CAPTAIN'S HAT?!?

CREW: Okay, this is exactly how I expected you to react - but--

CAPTAIN: I SEES IT NOW! MUTINY! YE PACK OF MOON-ADDLED SEA URCHINS! Well, ye may have taken me vessel! But ye kin never take - ME HAT! YAHAR!

CREW2: Hey Manuel, you got Dave's hat yet? We got the fire started and whoa. Awkward.

CREW2: Wasn't that from Braveheart?

CAPTAIN: YAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAR!

Enjoy!

Edwyn, let me just say...

That was some of the most enjoyable 60 seconds I've experienced all week. Dave's craziness, the mate's escaping the loony bin, and just all of Dave's mannerisms. "Yar ye be talking behind me back, yar." Just everything one could ask for in pirate related
shenanigans.

Yar, yee deserve a 10/10, the victory of this competition, the buried treasure worth 150 deblums...and all the corn in Iowa, lad. Excellent work, matey.

Oh wow noice

I can't make up mind! This is reeaaallly fantastic, too D:
Awe, I love this!!

4.32 / 5.00 (+ 0.052)

lmfao it would be even funnier if it was a paper hat

Lol

I love you.

Omahdon responds:

I love you too!

.... I mean. I love... the air. Ha. @_@

Great!

Nice, dude! Loved the voices and the SFX.

The one thing is, were it not for you saying in your description that it is set in a patent office, I would not have known that from the audio. Of course, you were probably banking on the animator doing that, but I think you should've added some office noises or something.

Otherwise, a fine piece of work!

Omahdon responds:

Thanks man! But I did add like... typing SFX at the beginning and some office background SFX? O.o I guess I should have had some phones going off in the background as well to seal the deal.

On the otherhand, I'd be very interested to see how an animator does this NOT in an office setting. :-P
