I post this 'cuz I just finished reading Treasure Island. I got this app Stanza for the iphone which lets you read any public domain work that's in Project Gutenberg. It's pretty handy to have something to read on the phone when waiting and you don't have a book, like at the garage or sometimes on the subway, etc. So I was looking through the public domain books and saw Treasure Island, downloaded it and wow was it good! Rollicking great adventure, well told, and with so much pirate canon it was amazing. There's a great pirate toast in there that they make before drinking:

Here's to ourselves and hold your luff / Plenty of prizes and plenty of duff!

Is that where the Simpsons got it from?
