Avast! September 19 is Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Posted by Richard on September 20, 2006

Arrr, what a bilge rat I be! I forgot to celebrate International Talk Like a Pirate Day today! Well, I’m off to quickly quaff some grog. I leave you with the link to the official site, me hearties, and with a quick riddle:

Q: Who is the favorite singer/songwriter of many pirates?

A: Arrr-t Garrr-funkel

Arrr! International Talk Like a Pirate Day September 19

UPDATE: Craig Ferguson on CBS’ Late Late Show remembered Talk Like a Pirate Day. That’s appropriate, I suppose, since having a Scottish accent gets you a long way toward talking like a pirate — Scotsmen are good at rrrolling their arrrs. As a thanks to Craig, here’s a joke from tonight’s monologue (from memory):

Deal or No Deal is back. … This has to be the dumbest game show ever. "Do you want money or more money?" … It’s like "Let’s Make a Deal" for stupid people.

 I just love the Ferguson monologues. For more reasons why, see this earlier post. Mmm, good grog.
