Avast, me Hearties! Alright, it doesn’t have a whole lot to do with beer (although I can assume that pirates, when not swigging rum, enjoyed their fair share of tankards of ale) but today is International Talk Like A Pirate Day and I just wanted to wish you all a happy and prosperous one, full of bounty and booty.
Here are some fun links to peruse while you’re slogging away at some ale this afternoon. First, the official International Talk Like a Pirate Day website, so you can read up on the history of this glorious holiday and practice your Pirate Speak pickup lines; The Pirate Glossary, so you can brush up on your Pirate phrases, in case you’re a little rusty; my absolute favorite: PostLikeaPirate.com, which let’s you post directly to Twitter having translated each of your posts to Pirate speak; and this site produced by Google, which let’s you search the Google databases with everything translated to Pirate. They’re all way too much fun.
So have yourselves some fun today, drink some beer (but be sure and avoid a Grog Blossom) and shiver me timbers! Happy International Talk Like A Pirate Day, Ye Scurvy Dogs!
