Here are a few of the gems:

Here’s the “how to”:
First scroll all of the way down to the bottom of yer “Home Port”.
Find the “Facebook (c) 2009 English (US)” link at the bottom, lower-left corner:
Select English (Pirate) Beta from the popup list and click OKAY!
That’s it! Now ye be a Facebook pirate, Arghh!
