Arrrg! A Hearty Talk Like A Pirate Day To Ya

I love talk like a pirate day. This pic is from 2003 at the Internet Archive.)

Someone sent me this great pirate translation software. I have included a translation of my blog in the "more" section.

Here's the official Talk like a Pirate Day website. The cool thing is that ABC contacted the founder of it and got his Wife to participate in a special season premiere of "Wife Swap" - "Wench Swap." (Here's the commercial for the Wench Swap episode.)

You know how I love it when Internet stuff gets on to the silver screen!

Here's a blog post from the official Pirates of the Carribean website talking about it.

When I saw the above post, I was afraid for a minute, that Talk Like A Pirate Day had originated to promote Disney's Pirates Of the Carribean, not to make fun of how the RIAA was calling us all pirates in the early 2000's. But I was wrong on both counts.

According to the wikipedia article, it was started by John Baur and Mark Summers way back in 1995, just cause they thought pirates were cool.

Here's a nice How To Talk Like A Pirate video, to help you ham it up today.
