Today is the day where instead of saying "hi" you should say "avast ye scurvy knave!" Today is the day when you should start every sentence with "arggg" or "yarrrr." Today is September 19th, the official "Talk Like a Pirate Day"!

My friends and I discovered "Talk Like a Pirate Day" in a newspaper colum written by Dave Barry. Some faithful readers of his column had written Dave Barry to tell him about a holiday they had created. Being a nationally syndicated columist, Dave Barry figured that he had the power to bring this wonderful holiday to the public.

If you need a little help talking like a pirate jump over to Talking like a pirate is fun but annoys people.

Apparently the inventor of this fine holiday was interviewed on NPR sometime this afternoon. I didn't have the pleasure of listening to it myself, but one of my faithful pirate maties told me of it.
