Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day, which requires this annual reminder:

A pirate’s growl is rendered thus: Arrrrrrr, with the number of consonants at your discretion. (Odd number more seemly than even.)

Arrrrrrgh, as you will recall from Charlie Brown's reactions in Peanuts, is an expression of disappointment, distress, anguish.

Do not confuse pirates with Peanuts, particularly in headlines and captions.
