Ahoy, me hearties!
Today, 19 September, is ‘Talk Like a Pirate Day’. Yay. Not for pirates – after all, they were pretty awful characters (except for Cap’n Jack Sparrow of course, and maybe Smee) but simply because it’s SUCH fun to talk like a pirate!
Your guide to pirate lingo is here or you can watch an instructional video
If you’re really keen on all things piratey, you could even join the pirate party of which most countries seem to have one (who knew?!)
