Oh arrrrrrgh'it all went well shipmates! First of all mates I swabbed the decks so everything was ship shape before the crew woke up. Then plundered me piggybank for hidden treasure and loot to go scouring Morrisons's supermarket for grub to fill our bellies oh arrrrgh! The main reason for this quest was to get supplies of fruit to prevent scurvy and mutiny amongst the crew. After ransacking the aisles I came upon some grog to wet our whistles to go down a treat after dinner oh arrrrrgh!

So it was all hands on deck me hearties and a yo, ho, ho and a bottle of er, cider?!

Okay people, look here... There are twenty-six letters in the alphabet. Count 'em. Twenty-six. So why is it that only "R" gets to be a big deal on Talk Like a Pirate Day? Does anyone ever say, "Emmm! Avast me hearties and swab the poopdeck afore I tickle yer gizzards with me pigsticker! Emmm!" No! It's always "Arrr".

Well, the other twenty-five of us have had enough. Consider this a warning shot across your scurvey bows. If we don't get some recognition, and get it pronto, we're going to board yer fleabitten sorry excuses for pirate ships, haul down yer Jolly Rogers, and shove 'em up yer communal arses!

This song was just forwarded to me via Bob Zentz and does reflect the spirit of the occasion:

Talk Like A Pirate Day

(Words and Music: © 2003 by Tom Smith)

Most days are like all of the others,
Go to work, come back home, watch TV,
But, brother, if I had me druthers,
I'd chuck it and head out to sea,

For I dream of the skull and the crossbones,
I dream of the great day to come,
When I dump the mundane for the Old Spanish Main
And trade me computer for rum! ARRR!

    T' me,...Yo, Ho, Yo, Ho,
    It's "Talk Like A Pirate" Day!
    When laptops are benches God gave us fer wenches,
    And a sail ain't a low price ta pay!
    When timbers are shivered and lillies are livered
    And every last buckle is swashed,
    We'll abandon our cars for a shipfull of ARRRs
    And pound back the grog till we're sloshed! Yo ho....

Don't pick up yer phone and say "Hello,
Our ten-o-clock meeting's delayed",
Ye scrunch up yer face and ye bellow,
"AVAST! Ye've been bleedin' BELAYED!"

Ye can't keep this fun to yerself, I bet,
So sing "Aye!" "ARRR!" "Ayy!" every man!
We ain't got much grasp of the alphabet,
But a damn good retirement plan!

    T' me,...Yo, Ho, Yo, Ho,
    It's "Talk Like A Pirate" Day!
    Whatever's in fashion is in for a thrashin'
    And bein' polite is passe!
    When it's ev'ry man's duty to grab his proud beauty
    And let out a hearty YO HO!
    And if this offends you, hold y'r breath as we sends you
    Ta Davy Jones' Locker ya go! Yo ho....

       We'll tell every banker "Heave to and weigh anchor!"
       Buy latte with pieces of eight
       We'll fight to be chosen as cap'n or bosun
       The loser, o' course, is worst mate!

       When we hoist Jolly Roger, the landlubbers dodge 'er,
       We fill 'em with loathing and fear,
       We'll plunder and pillage each city and village,
       Or at least clean out Wal-Mart of beer!

       There ain't no computin' or morning commutin',
       No "Parking Lot Full" signs for me,
       No lawns ta be mowin' or bills to be owin',
       I'm knowin' the pull of the sea.

       The fresh salty brace of the wind on my face
       Through hurricane, sunshine or squalls,
       I'm keepin' my eyes on the distant horizon,
       Verizon can hold all my calls!

To wear a red coat full o' buckles,
To earn a few duelling scars,
Well, at least we can get a few chuckles
By filling the office with ARRRs!

And maybe we'll never get closer,
Than watchin' 'em on the big screen,
So here's to old Errol and Depp as Jack Sparrow,
And every damn one in between!

    T' me,    Yo, Ho, Yo, Ho,
    It's "Talk Like A Pirate" Day!
    That time in September when sea dogs remember
    That grown-ups still know how ta play!
    When wenches are curvy and dogs are all scurvy
    And a soft-wear patch covers your eye,
    Ta hell with our jobs, for one day we're all swabs
    And buccaneers all till we die!

    So hoist up the mainsils and shut down your brain cells,
    They only would get in the way,
    Avast there, me hearty, we're havin' a party,
    It's "Talk... Like... A Pirate" Day!

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Welcome to the one and only, official, accept-no-substitutes Talk Like A Pirate Day Web site.

In the six years since Dave Barry mentioned us in his blog, what once was a goofy idea celebrated by a handful of friends has turned into an international phenomenon that shows no sign of letting up. Maybe you read about us on line.. Maybe you caught one of our radio or TV interviews. Or maybe you just stumbled on to our site while googling around for sites your mother probably wouldn't approve of. Or perhaps you're one of the millions of people from South Africa to the South Pole, from New York to the Pacific Northwest, who've made it your own personal excuse to party like pirates every September 19th (and sometimes for days after)!

Am I correct in assuming that TLAPD approaches?
If this day is held as a holy day by the CFSM (Pastafarians), then surely they must also honour "'Saint' Robert Newton of Mummerset", the man who gave pirates their distinct accent and habit if speaking only in the present tense.

So I turns to face execution dock at Wappin', I raises me glass an' I drinks to the memory o' pirates past.

Don't forget keelhauling*, woolding, hard tack, careening, wanking the plork**, scurvy lubbers (or better still, curvy lovers), and hanging in chains at Execution Dock.

* Invented at Keele Hall, Staffordshire, as a punishment for unruly gardeners, who deserted en masse and took to piracy.

** I bet you didn't know Dr. Spooner was a pirate before becoming Master of New College, Oxford. He sailed the Mannish Spain flying the Rolly Jodger.

Of course! TLAPD is sacred and must be celebrated appropriately. Rum, cutlasses, wenches (or wrenches for the wenches), marooning, carooming, plundering, and rum are all appropriate.

You see, open mike, one of the basic tenets of Pastafarianism (followers of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster are known as Pastafarians) is that there's a direct correlation between the increase in global warming over the last few hundred years and the decrease in pirates*. By actively participating in Talk Like a Pirate Day, we are also helping save the planet.

*There are those who claim that there are actually more pirates on the seas today than at any other time in history. But those aren't real pirates. They don't say "Arrr!" and drink rum. They're nothing but the seagoing equivalent of muggers and carjackers.
