Avast, ye scurvy dogs– September 19th be International Talk Like A Pirate Day, so my crew and I will be celebratin’ by talkin’ like pirates (just like every day aboard the Pirate Vessel HLB) and raising a flagon o’ grog to the memory of Jack Sparrow, Hector Barbossa… and the greatest buccaneer to ever wield a rapier on the high seas, Peter Blood.
FOLLOW ME, M’ HARDIES! [Talking like a pirate very well could entail a patrician accent like that of Errol Flynn, so don’t feel the need to follow the silliness by being guttural and making your throat all raspy.]
Just so’s ye have some context for our bit o’ celebratin’, a few links:
- International Talk Like a Pirate Day, Official Site (No, I don’t know what constitutes official)
- A guide to dressing like a pirate (not part of the holiday– it’s TALK Like a Pirate Day– but proper attire never hurts)
- Pirate Puns
- Pirate Insults
- For crying out loud, do your own research, will ye?
Enjoy the holiday, ye rotten bilge swillers.
