“What’s a pirate’s favorite restaurant?”/“Arrrby’s.”

Pirates say “arrr,” according to many pirate movies. There is a joke:
Q: What’s a pirate’s favorite restaurant?
A: Arrrby’s.

The Arby’s joke has been cited in print since at least 2003. However, some believe that a pirate’s favorite restaurant is Long John Silver’s.
Wikipedia: Arby’s
Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. (/ˈɔrbiz/) is the second largest quick-service sandwich chain in the U.S. with more than 3,400 restaurants system wide.
Roark Capital Group acquired the company in July 2011 and owns 81.5% of the company, with The Wendy’s Company owning the other 18.5%. In addition to its classic Roast Beef and Beef ‘n Cheddar sandwiches,[4] Arby’s products also include deli-style Market Fresh line of sandwiches, Curly Fries and Jamocha Shakes. Its headquarters is in Sandy Springs, Georgia.
