September 19, 2009 is The Original INTERNATIONAL TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY!
Apparently, seven years ago Dave Barry [you know, the extremely boring columnist from the Miami Herald] mentioned an amatuer pirate crew who talked like pirates one day a year in one of his columns and then wrote an introduction for the book:

Pirattitude!: So you Wanna Be a Pirate?: Here’s How!

Authors John “Chumbucket” Baur and Mark “Cap’n Slappy” Summers CLAIM they have become an “international PHENOMENEM that shows no sign of letting up”
So if you too want to talk like a pirate on a designated international holiday, you have nine days to practice.
How do know  this USELESS bit of trivia?

I blame Twitter ...

  1. I never could do that pirate talk, but my favorite book as a kid was Treasure Island.

  2. Chapter One -- Pirates frequently compelled unfortunate people on a captured ship to "walk the plank" into the sea.

    Chapter 28 -- "Batten down your hatches" means keep silent.
