Talk like a pirate on Facebook

Well shiver me timbers, you can Facebook like a pirate, just in time for Gasparilla day.

A little-known feature in the world's largest social media site lets you change the language of your Facebook settings from English to Pirate (Click on 'English' on the bottom of your Facebook page. A drop-down menu will pop up; select English-Pirate).

So the status field now reads, "What be troublin' ye?" And instead of a Like or Comment button, it says "Arr!" and "Blabber t' yer mates."

So post a Bewitched Portrait (video) of your Gasparilla party and Return Fire (poke back) any of your Mateys who Skewer you.
