Your Pirate Home

On Talk Like a Pirate Day, you can speak the part. You can even look the part, if you like. But if you are really into the pirate phenomena, you can live like a pirate every day!

First thing in the morning, head to the bathroom for a wash behind your pirate shower curtain. Turn the skull and crossbone taps to start your shower.

Everything in the bathroom can be tied into the pirate theme, right down to the skull toilet brush holder.

C-Dock Pirates has more pirate bathroom accessories, like bath mats, towels, wash cloths, and this lovely toilet set.

But the bathroom isn't the only place to play pirate! More after the jump.

A great day starts with a good breakfast. This toaster will imprint a Jolly Roger symbol on your toast! If you're a little too cheap to spring for the 29 euro toaster, you can get a stamp from Archie McPhee that will put an impression on your bread. Then just pop it in a normal toaster and see the skull and crossbones when it's toasted!

Before you leave home, dab on a bit of pirate perfume. Scents for men include Swashbuckler, Cavalier, El Capitan and Buccaneer. For wenches, choose from Buxom, Siren and Damsel. My guess is that these perfumes smell a lot better than a real pirate ever did.

It is well nigh impossible to predict shipping totals accurately online, since order size and destination vary a great deal. That's why the shipping rates be listed on a per-piece basis.

I'll be right fair with ye, though. Trust me, I'm a pirate. Har! Seriously — I am a strong advocate of treatin' me customers right.

Pull your boots off, and set your weary feet down on your pirate throw rug.

And as you lay your weary head down after a long day of talking like a pirate, rest comfortably on sheets, pillows, and pillowcases printed with the familiar skull and crossbones. Nighty night! Er, I mean, dreams ahoy!
