Pirate Speak

Someone translated Cory Doctorow's Down and Out In the Magic Kingdom into pirate speak using a Perl script. Here's the first paragraph:

I lived long enough t' be seein' th' cure fer Davy Jones' locker; t' be seein' th' rise o' th' Bitchun Society, t' learn ten languages; t' compose three symphonies; t' reckon me boyhood dream o' takin' up residence in Disney World; t' be seein' th' Davy Jones' locker o' th' workplace an' o' work.

I nerethought I'd live t' be seein' th' tide when Keep A-Movin' Dan would decide t' deadhead until th' heat Davy Jones' locker o' th' Universe.


Heat death is what "th' heat Davy Jones' locker" was originally. Replacing every occurrence of the word 'death' with all that is a little unwieldy.
