September 19: International Talk Like a Pirate Day

pirate-flagI know I wrote about this last year, but I just can’t pass it up. September 19 is International Talk Like a Pirate Day! ARRR!

If you need more instructions for celebrating Talk Like a Pirate Day, check out this poem by Tom Smith from the official website. My favorite part:

Don’t pick up yer phone and say “Hello,
Your ten-o-clock meeting’s delayed”,
Ye scrunch up yer face and ye bellow,
“AVAST! Ye’ve been bleedin’ BELAYED!”

~ Talk Like a Pirate Day by Tom Smith

pirate-ship-at-seaTalk Like A Pirate Day began among two friends as a fun way to encourage each other during a racquetball game. For the next seven years, the holiday was no more than several friends talking like a pirate on September 19. Then, in 2002, the friends emailed their idea to Dave Barry, and the holiday snowballed!

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.”

1 Timothy 4:12
