How you take advantage of some of these FREEBIES or I will have ye all walk the plank.
Make sure you grab yourself an eye patch, bandana, baggy shirt, and a little toy parrot or monkey.
Make sure you use awful grammar and jump right into that accent.
How it all began
International Talk Like a Pirate Day is a parodic holiday created in 1995 by John Baur (Ol’ Chumbucket) and Mark Summers (Cap’n Slappy), of Albany, Oregon, who proclaimed September 19 each year as the day when everyone in the world should talk like a pirate.
They celebrated it quietly for a few years, sharing the joke with a small group of friends.
One day in 2002, they wrote to humor columnist Dave Barry asking him to be the spokesperson for National Talk Like a Pirate Day.
Thank you, guys, for this creative way to spice up the month of September.
