Way back in the mists of history when the internet was young and we traveled its wild, uncharted waters (cough… GeoCities… cough) aboard the good ship Netscape; a pair of scurvy dogs decided the world needed a new holiday. And so Talk Like a Pirate Day was born.
For a while the event continued on celebrated by the pair and their friends. Until one day, probably over a large flagon of Grog, the piratical duo decided to email humor columnist Dave Barry about their idea. The rest is history.
Now over a 10 years after that fateful email, enthusiasts around the world join together to celebrate in their own fashion. Be it a party, dressing as a buccaneer or just using pirate jargon.
Arrr you one of them?
