Arrrr, ye scurvy cockroacches; drag yer mangly keesters out o bed an’ follo’ me on Instagram at sharpharmade! .

YES, it’s ‘Talk Like A Pirate Day! Yo, Ho, Yo, Ho! .

“Yar harrr! Ahoy there ye lily livered blaggards! It be Talk Like A Pirate Day, and that means it’s time for pillaging and imbibing of rum! Pirates have been all the rage in recent years, and out of that rage came an insane and completely piratical idea. There should be a day dedicated to keeping the piratical language alive, and more importantly the piratical tradition.

It was June 6, 1995, and there was a group of men playing racquetball, and throughout they were shouting encouragement to each other. On this particular day, they started shouting piratical slang at each other. From there it just kind of took on a life of its own, and they realized by the end of the game that it was necessary that they establish a holiday to celebrate that encouraged the use of such a fine vernacular. The first thing they needed was a date; so they selected one.

For the next seven years they honored this holiday, in relative obscurity, until they happened upon the email address of one Dave Barry, a syndicated columnist and author of a great number of books. He also happened to be hilarious, like any good pirate should be. From there it’s all history, Dave Barry promoted the holiday, and it’s been one amazing year after another as people all over the country celebrate this auspicious holiday.

Celebrating talk like a pirate day be as easy as a day in the tropic, you simply need to turn up your piratical vernacular, pour a few fruity drinks with umbrellas in them, and gather with friends to celebrate the day in your piratey best! Who can resist a backyard barbecue with grilled pineapple, salmon made by wokkin’ the plank, and perhaps an inappropriately large amount of pure sugar cane rum? Are you ready to pirate it up?” . ^sPm – #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’ http://ow.ly/i/n9mcM
