Pirate day!

In the last nine years since Cap'n Slappy and pal Talderoy got national press recognition that turned a goofy idea celebrated by a handful of friends has turned into an international phenomenon: September 19 - International Talk Like A Pirate Day : D

Pirate re-inaction has really taken off in the last 10 years, I have no doubt its popularity has been helped along by the blockbuster Pirate of the Caribbean movies by Disney. What ever our reasons we all love pirates! What a great excuse to dress up, drink rum and otherwise party like pirates every September 19th (and sometimes for days before and after)! Thanks to FB and its "official" pirate language setting its so easy to really get into the swing of things : )
