  (+15, -12)
(+15, -12)
  [vote for,

A protocol for translation of a numerical PIN into a series of pirate phrases. E.g.:

1 - Arr
2 - Me hearties
3 - Avast ye lubbers
4 - Belay there
5 - Pieces of Eight
6 - Cap'n
7 - Shiver me timbers
8 - Davy Jones Locker
9 - Thar she blows
0 - Yo ho ho

Can be used at special ATMs and when saying digits from your PIN when using phone banking services.

       So hang on, mine would be, er, "Yo ho ho, Thar she blows. Belay there, Cap'n!

       Thar she blows, Belay there, Avast ye lubbers, Pieces of Eight?   

       Or maybe Arr, Me hearties, Shiver me timbers, Cap'n?
DesertFox, Feb 17 2005

       Wow, this one would get Me hearties buns if we could give more than Arr.
Trickytracks, Feb 17 2005

       So my PIN would be Yo ho ho Yo ho ho Yo ho ho Yo ho ho? I don't think I can remember that.

       I don't like Pieces of Eight. It doesn't sound piraty enough.

       i dunno, pirate shirts had enough trouble making a come-back...

       it seems pirates are slipping out of vogue this week
benfrost, Feb 18 2005

       Since you're just saying your PIN out loud, wouldn't someone who had the key to the code be able to figure out your PIN? Or could they just repeat what you said? Or does it only work to the sound of your voice?

       lol, Monkey Island
xlemon, Jun 23 2005

       [phundug] I don't like pieces of eight either, it's not 5 enough for me.
