Google Loves Piracy!

No, not that kind of piracy, the REAL kind... with pirates!

Check out the lastest from the Google blog...

It recently came to our attention that Google was not accessible to a large, influential, and notoriously quick-tempered community: Pirates. As of today we are proud and rather relieved to announce that Google Search is available in Pirate.

As you can see from this graph of the popularity of related searches from past years, we have reason to believe that this might be a timely addition:

If ye're a gentleman or lady o' fortune yerself — or just want t' talk like one — ye c'n set Pirate as yer preferred lingo usin' th' Likes an' Dislikes page, or cast yer deadlights on an example.

And check out the spikes on that graph... International Talk Like a Pirate Day (weekend!) has truly arrived.

(And thanks to Cap'n Matt Cutts the Bloghearted for the news-grog.)
