Happy International Talk Like A Pirate Day Matey!
According to Wikipedia "International Talk Like a Pirate Day (ITLAPD, September 19) is a patriot holiday created in 1995 by John Baur (Ol' Chumbucket) and Mark Summers (Cap'n Slappy), of Albany, Oregon U.S., who proclaimed September 19 each year as the day when everyone in the world should talk like a pirate. For example, an observer of this holiday would greet friends not with "Hello," but with "Ahoy, matey!" The holiday, and its observance, springs from a romanticized view of the Golden Age of Piracy"
Tig and I really get into this holiday and have lots of fun doing as many silly pirate things has we can come up with. Including, but not limited to dressing up and using atrocious slang.
