Talk Like A Pirate Day

International Talk Like A Pirate Day is on September 19 of every year. It was first established by a couple of rogues named John Baur and Mark Summers in 1995 and brought to life and national attention by Pulitzer Prize Winning Columnist and seadog Dave Barry in 2002.


International Talk Like A Pirate Day gives rascals and wenches a chance every year to don their pirate costumes and converse like scallywags. Not only that, Talk Like A Pirate Day calls needed attention to the plight of the endangered pirate species.

By calling public attention to the history of International Talk Like A Pirate Day, advocates from around the world will save the old seadogs of yesteryear from certain demise. It's not enough for movies like Pirates of the Caribbean to surface every year or two, but Talk Like A Pirate Day must exist or thousands upon thousand of pirates will die untimely deaths and drop to the bottom of Davy Jones' Locker.

No, my friends we must keep the pirate spirit alive and International Talk Like A Pirate Day (not in any way affiliate with the International House of Pancakes) will do just this. On September 19, we must stand tall, put on our pirate costumes, walk with a limp and talk like a pirate. This is the one day of the year to use pirate phrases, lingo, words and vocabulary just like buccaneers of old.

It does not matter whether we be at work, swimming with sharks, or picking our kids up from daycare or smoking a turd to celebrate our wedding anniversary. What is important is that ye take on this hardy holiday with gusto and fervor and grab it by the barnacles and never let it go.

Shiver me timbers, mateys, Talk Like A Pirate Day is a phenomenon that should not go away. As pirate matey first class Dylan Thomas used to say, "Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light!"

Talk Like A Pirate Day is a chance to take ye spyglass and scrounge up a few doubloons and head to the local tavern for a schooner filled with ale. Partake of some noontime grub, whilst ye may. Polish yer hook and scratch yer arse if ye must, but get thee self out there and celebrate. Say "Ahoy ye varmints" to yer shipmates and speak with an decent accent. Be sure to tip the wench twenty pences for serving the ale. And, like any good pirate on this holiday, you're sure to be wearing yer best arrrrrggggyle socks.
