International Talk like a Pirate Day! Reposted.

On Sept 19th it’s International Talk Like a Pirate Day!

International Talk Like a Pirate Day is a parodic holiday created in 1995 by John Baur and Mark Summers, of Albany, Oregon, U.S., who proclaimed September 19 each year as the day when everyone in the world should talk like a pirate.Wikipedia

The iconic word, Arrrr, turns out to be a West Country UK word for yes. It was popularized in the 1934 movie version of Treasure Island. With a parrot upon his shoulder, crying pieces of eight, and a peg leg, Beery brought to life the iconic imagery of Robert Louis Stevenson.

Though I wonder if it would be more popular as “Dress like a Pirate Day!”…
