Evast you sea scurvy ridden dogs! Tis be International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Arrrrrgh, tis be the one day where glances upon mine hooked hand and stuffed parrot are not followed by the chuckles of the landlocked. So get to it you barnacle covered sea rats!
So me and my buddy at work IM throughout the day and somehow the following conversation came up… pretty much one of the funniest irc moments I’ve had in years. Enjoy.

So today in our dev irc channel one of the other devs linked us a site that allows you to run old skool Apple II games, more specifically Oregon Trail! If you have never played this game you are missing out. It was an educational game that was supposed to teach you how to deal with random events and spend money wisely by getting your family from the east coast to Oregon without having to dig any graves. It was mostly text based but did have some pretty cool images (for back in the day).
If you wanna check out Oregon Trail, or other old skool games check out http://www.virtualapple.org/oregontraildisk.html.
I was excited to give this classic game a whirl and forgot that one of the first things asked was to enter my name, along with five other names, which would represent the party of people traveling with me to Oregon. Naturally I entered my name in slot #1, then entered my buddy Roy’s mom name in slot #2, as Roys Mom. The rest I let autofill wtih randomly selected names.
Long story short, I was almost to Oregon when the following screen shot happened. Pretty much loled and spit coffee all over my monitor.
Hahahahahaha…. hopefully she got better!
