Celebrate International Talk Like A Pirate Day, Mateys!

Ahoy mateys, are you prepared to walk the plank on Monday? Yes, I am a dork. This Monday, September 19th is International Talk Like A Pirate Day and ye scurvy dogs best be prepared! At first an inside joke between two friends, the holiday gained exposure when John Baur and Mark Summers sent a letter about their invented holiday to the American syndicated humor columnist Dave Barry in 2002. Barry liked the idea and promoted the day. Since then, September 19th is officially Talk Like A Pirate Day, so be sure to add lots of “arghs” and “ahoy mateys” to your emails and conversations and celebrate with some pirate-style fun with the kids…
