Talk Like a Pirate Day

Avast there, ye grass-combing swabs! It be almost time for International Talk Like a Pirate Day!

That’s right, matey. On September 19th, all good folk are hereby enjoined to speak the pirate’s way, and to make merry with all things piratical for the sheer, wicked joy of it. Aye, and lift a glass o’ grog to the patron saint of International Talk Like a Pirate Day, too.

“For the record: the Patron Saint of Talk Like A Pirate Day is the late Robert Newton, who played, if not the first (that honor goes to Wallace Beery) at least the definitive Long John Silver in Disney’s 1950 version of Treasure Island. The whole “arrrrrr, matey” thing seems to have been Newton’s own invention, and he milked – er, played it for all it was worth, reprising the classic pirate in 1952’s Blackbeard, the Pirate.” —–Cap’n Slappy

On this day be pirate parties, pirate sing-a-longs, the watchin’ o’ pirate films, the wearin’ o’ pirate gear if ye choose, and much other amusements and allurements to gladden a buccaneer’s black heart. So brush up on yer pirate lingo, me hearties, or instead of treasure, ye’ll be gettin’ a taste o’ the gunner’s daughter, and no mistake.

Tis time to hoist the Jolly Roger, mateys, and set sail for fun!

There be Talk Like a Pirate Day greeting cards, too, for which to celebrate with yer crew o’ cutthroats, or invite ‘em to a right old carouse.
