International Talk Like A Pirate Day
Sept. 19, every year since 2002
It’s the day. Talk Like a Pirate Day!
This is the day to let your inner pirate out to play. Swagger, growl and let the world see the buccaneer inside.
Cap’n Slappy and I are grateful (and still more than a little surprised!) that so many people all around the world are having fun with our little idea. And that’s what it’s about – fun. Don’t read anything more into it than that.
But if you’re one of those who don’t get it, who are a little too uptight to be a little silly, who sniff that, “But pirates were criminals, they were evil,” we would say, sure. That’s OK. All we can do is invite you to play. If you don’t want to, that’s fine.
If everyone were a pirate, who’d be the prey?
Here is one of our videos to help you get in the spirit.
