Celebrated every year on September 19
International Talk Like a Pirate Day be created in 1995 by two swaggering buccaneers
known as John Baur (Ol’ Chumbucket) and Mark Summers (Cap’n Slappy),
who proclaimed September 19 each year as the day when all the lily livered ‘lubbers in the world
should be talking like a pirate.
Not the boring pirates that we currently know to steal and murder out of greed or desperation, ofcourse.
But like the pirates we be knowing from a romanticized view of the Golden Age of Piracy.
We be talking Treasure Island and Pirates of the Caribbean ofcourse.
