Avast, me harties! Guess what day it is?
It’s the 10th anniversary of International Talk Like a Pirate Day. What better way to celebrate the Golden Age of Piracy than with pictures and videos from the internet? Here are 5 ways to play along.
1. Talk Like a Pirate
It’s an old one, but it’s a classic. If you’ve got six minutes to spare, this video has step-by step instructions for perfecting your rum-drenched growl.
2. Pack Your Kids’ Lunches Like a Pirate
The plastic sword skewers, we’re told, are very authentic.
3. Batten Down the Hatches
Looks secure, doesn’t it?
4. Sail the Seven Seas
We have no idea where the treasure is, but the salty sea dogs at TalkLikeAPirateDay.com have loaded all known pirate gatherings for International Talk Like A Pirate Day 2012 onto a Google treasure map. “X” marks the spot. Most of them are nowhere near the seven seas.
5. Relax After a Long Day
Ahh…r, that’s nice.
