“To err is human. To arr is pirate”

"To err is human; to forgive, divine” was written by Alexander Pope (1688-1744) in “An Essay on Criticism” (1711). The line is famous and has many parodies.

A pirate joke that has been printed on many images is:

“To err is human. To arr is pirate.”

The pirate joke was posted on the newsgroup rec.games.roguelike.nethack on June 12, 2004.
