Avast, me hearties!

September 19, 2011

Ahoy thar, landlubbers! Today (19 Sept) is International Talk Like a Pirate Day!

This be the ninth year o’ celebratin’ this day all o’er the world!  It started as a goofy idea,  and has turned into an international phenomenon that shows no sign of letting up.

We mean the “stealin’ stuff on the high seas and looking’ rugged like Johnny Depp” kind o’ pirate. So put on yer eyepatches, bring out the rum, and hoist that black flag with a skull on it!  Talk like a pirate site

To get thee in thar piratin’ mood, get thee ideas here outta some of the 150+ piratin’ books we got:

  • “The black lung captain: a tale of the Ketty Jay” by Chris Wooding  (pirates in space)
  • “Flint and Silver”” by John Drake
  • “If a pirate I must be – the true story of Bartholomew Roberts – King of the Caribbean pirates” by Richard Sanders
