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.

Also, I think they have different intonation: a zombie arr is monotonous while a pirate arr is more definitive: "aaaarrgh... brains..." vs "arr! Jim, lad!"
