Talk Like A Pirate Day: Arrrgh Matey!

Sir Francis Drake: slave trader and pirate backed by the English crown.

Shiver me timbers ya scallawags, it’s Talk Like A Pirate Day, perhaps one of my favorite un-holidays ever!

Seriously, every year I anxiously wait for the opportunity to spend a nice September day talking like an idiot and cracking pirate jokes constantly.  Some popular ones:

  • What’s a pirate’s favorite food? Arrrrrtichokes.
  • What has 12 arms, 12 legs and 12 eyes? A dozen pirates.
  • What’s a pirate’s favorite basketball move? The hook shot.
  • How could the pirate acquire the ship so cheaply? Because it was on sail.
  • Did you hear about that new pirate movie? It’s rated Arrrrrgh.

So please, support your local pirate today!  Personally, the only ones I can think of are Swedish…

… or they’re in movies.

Disclaimer: I am in no way promoting or attempting to glorify ACTUAL piracy, just having fun with a weird holiday.
