Fire in the morning/Spelling arrgh

Yesterday, walking down Euston Road, I was surprised to see a man juggling fire, even though it was morning. I'm not sure why fire-juggling does not strike me as a morning activity. It seems a thing of afternoons or evenings.

C. has a question for you: how does one differentiate between pirate and zombie "arr"s?

I postulate that zombie ones have more "gh"s in them.

I always hear the pirate "arrrr" with a rolled r at the front of the mouth. The zombie one would be more gurgly, in the back of the throat, or what's left of it; I doubt zombies have a lot of dexterity in their tongue tips.
