Ahoy! Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. For those of you who might not know about this fun day, here’s a little info from the International Talk Like a Pirate Day website:
Ever since Dave Barry mentioned us in his nationally syndicated newspaper column in 2002, what once was a goofy idea celebrated by a handful of friends has turned into an international phenomenon that shows no sign of letting up. Maybe you read about us on line.. Maybe you caught one of our radio or TV interviews. Or maybe you just stumbled on to our site while googling around for sites your mother probably wouldn’t approve of. Or perhaps you’re one of the millions of people from South Africa to the South Pole, from New York to the Pacific Northwest, who’ve made it your own personal excuse to party like pirates everyÂ September 19thÂ (and sometimes for days before and after)!
