Some of my favorite actors/actresses from days of yore are: James Mason, Audrey Hepburn, Bette Davis, Jimmy Stewart, Jimmy Cagney, Claude Rains, Jack Lemmon, Gregory Peck, Vincent Price, George Sanders, .. the list continues. I have seen over 60 Jimmy Stewart movies... because I'm a dork. I'm also a huge phan (fan of Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera) and I know most of My Fair Lady by memory.

If you were a pirate, how would you avoid laughing when saying 'poop deck'?

I wouldn't really be able to avoid it, so hopefully I'd be a pirate on a ship where nobody would mind if I laughed when saying "poop deck."
