One of my freinds was talking about this in class...
Yar! It be 1 week to that time of year, me harties!
and Pirates want you! to talk like them! yeah, pretty random.
Talk like a pirate day was founded by 2 guys, named John Baur and Mark Summers. They thought of it during a raquetball game.
Now, some questions i think some people will ask.
Why do we celebrate Talk Like a pirate day?
Because we feel like it, and we all have wanted to be pirates.
What do we do on talk like a pirate day?
Well, for a start, we talk like pirates. For instance, take this scenetence:
"John sat on the mat" would become...
"Yaar, that scallywag named john walked tha plank to his mat. Yaar"
As well as talking like a pirate, you can also walk like a drunken pirate, and even dress up as one.
