    vorb.org.nz, a New Zealand forum, has run that filter over their whole site for the day. Strangely, it doesn't seem to have changed very much over there...

    So this pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel sticking out of his pants. He has a couple of beers, and finally the bartender says "Hey pal, I gotta ask. Whats the deal with the steering wheel?"

    Show me the way to go home
    I'm tired and I want to go to bed
    I had a little drink about an hour ago
    And its gone right to my head
    Where ever I may roam
    On land or sea or foam
    You will always hear me singing this song
    Show me the way to go home

    Arrr, so ye be wantin' t' go to sea an' ye don't be wantin' t' end up in Davy Jones' Locker. Then ye best be learnin' t' be talkin' like a buccaneer.
    A sea dog says 't this way:
    PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - Four tropical storms be havin' wiped ou' most o' Haiti`s food crops an' damaged irrigation systems an' pumpin' stations, raisin' th' specter o' acute hunger fer millions in th' impoverished country.

    Th' system o' agriculture be destroyed," Agriculture Minister Joanas Gue told Th' Associated Press. Aid agencies an' diplomats also say Haiti desperately needs help t' avert mass hunger.

    Emergency aid has flowed in t' swabbies directly affected by Fay, Gustav, Hanna an' Ike, storms that triggered floodin' an' killed at least 425 swabbies in less than a moon, includin' 194 in th' critical rice-growin' Artibonite Valley.

    But th' United Nations has raised less than 2 percent o' a critical $108 cargo holds o' fundraisin' appeal, spake Stephanie Bunker, a spokeswoman fer th' world body`s Office fer th' Coordination o' Humanitarian Affairs. Another $18 cargo holds o' be pledged but nay delivered.

    An' much, much more be needed, wi' farms damaged or destroyed across th' poorest country in th' Western Hemisphere.

    "This will take billions o' pieces o' eight. This be nay somethin' wee," U.S. Agency fer International Development Administrator Henrietta Fore told AP.

    Schools that be supposed t' open in early Septembree be still filled wi' refugees fightin' o'er scraps o' food aid. Much o' Gonaives, th' nation`s fourth largest city, remains flooded an' without electricity. Malaria an' other diseases be beginnin' t' spread.

    "Th' scope o' this be frankly unimaginable in many countries," spake U.S. Ambassador Janet Sanderson. "A lot o' th' progress o' th' last couple o' voyages be swept away by these waters."

    Th' U.S. government be sendin' $29 cargo holds o' in food aid an' humanitarian assistance, an' countries like Colombia be havin' airlifted food an' clothin'. U.N. agencies be havin' delivered food t' more than 240,000 swabbies, aided by soldiers o' its 9,000-strong peacekeepin' force an' military ships like th' USS Kearsarge an' Canada`s HMCS St. John.

    Haiti always struggled t' feed its swabbies. Now, 'tis gettin' t' be impossible.

    On a helicopter tour on Toosdee, Fore saw that floodwaters still covered much o' Haiti`s rice-growin' region. Crops be covered wi' brown mud or lay crushed in ruined fields stretchin' far as th' eye could be seein'.

    Gue, th' agriculture minister, estimates that 60 percent o' this voyage`s food harvest be wiped ou' by th' storms, which hit jus' as farmers be preparin' t' collect corn, plantains an' yams from the'r fields. Th' fall rice harvest be lost as well.

    Th' damage could be felt fer voyages &#8212; mountain topsoil, already loosened by rampant deforestation, washed ou' t' sea. Buckets o' irrigation basins, canals an' pumpin' stations be damaged, an' about 10,000 tons (9,000 metric tons) o' discounted fertilizer distributed t' farmers disappeared.

    Altogether, Gue estimated th' storms caused $180 cargo holds o' in damage t' Haiti`s agricultural sector.

    Food prices in some hard-hit cities ben pushed t' e'en greater heights. After Ike, which brushed by Haiti on Sept. 7, th' cost o' U.S.-imported rice had doubled in Gonaives t' $5.38 fer a large can. Fer cargo holds o' Haitians already facin' malnutrition, a daily bowl o' rice has become too expensive.

    Jacques-Eduoard Michele`s family used t' depend on th' rations o' rice an' plantains his father be paid t' work in th' Artibonite fields.

    "E'en before th' storms, we be hungry," he spake. "Now we be lookin' everywhere fer food."

    If th' world dasn't respond wi' long-term aid, experts warn that deadly food riots could re-ignite, unravelin' Haiti`s fragile political stability.

    "Th' situation be calm fer now but 't could easily erupt again," th' Brussels-based International Crisis Squadron spake this week.

    My pirate themed texts to the g/f aren't going over all that well. I think she's paranoid that I'll continue to speak like that when we hit the grocery tonight. I will not risk 'happy hour' for pirate talk.
