Arrrrr … Its International Talk like a Pirate Day


Well I guess we have a day for everything else these days, why not “Talk Like a Pirate1Pirate” day. So go into your business meeting today with an eye patch on and a parrot on your shoulder. Wonder what that will do for you at review time? Its all in good fun, let’s just hope no one’s boss makes them walk the plank. Give us your best Pirate phrase.

“We tap into that need for whimsy in people’s lives,” Summers says of the 24-hour celebration of quirkiness when they urge all self-respecting swashbucklers to show “pirattitude.”

International Talk Like a Pirate Day (TLAPD), which adopted Treasure Island star Robert Newton as its patron saint, now attracts fans from as far afield as Britain and Australia and even boasts a special Wikipedia site on the Internet.
