How to Properly Celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day

Thousands of people are under the misconception that the Holiday Season begins with  Halloween. Of course, those same people may be baffled when their family, friends, and colleagues color their speech with odd sayings on September 19th every year.

Today, I’m going to set the record straight regarding the REAL kickoff to the Holiday Season, as well as make sure YOU are ready to celebrate like true pirates!

To begin with the beginning, a history lesson is in order. If you have never heard of Talk Like a Pirate Day, the quick back story is this: two dudes slipped into pirate lingo one day and decided there was a need for worldwide holiday to enjoy such endeavors. Thus, a new holiday was born (all with a little a help from Dave Barry). If you’d the more detailed version, feel free to take a moment and learn how it all began. Of course, come back here to learn how to properly celebrate this auspicious holiday!

Now, how to celebrate! Be sure you are up to speed on all your pirate lingo. At the very least throw around an Arr or Avast and absolutely an Amatey! And don’t forget about Heave Ho, Jolly Roger (the pirate’s flag) and  Shiver me timbers! If you want to see the Pirate Guys (Cap’n Slappy and Ol’ Chumbucket) show you an example, just head on over to YouTube.  Another great resource is the wikiHow article “How to Talk Like a Pirate,” complete with vocabulary usage and video (that eerily reminds me of a 1960′s Driver’s Ed video – but I think that’s the point).  And, last but not least, know what NOT to say on Talk Like a Pirate Day…

I think that about covers it! Hopefully now you can be well prepared to properly celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day in all it’s glory this Friday, September 19th, 2008!

P.S. By doing your part to increase pirate activity, you are helping to decrease global warming! To learn more about this matter, check out The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster from Amazon.

P.P.S. Techafina takes no stance in the Pirates vs. Ninjas conflict and will give equal press time to Stalk Like a Ninja Day on December 5th.

    Don't feel odd. Heck, I'm always fixing things in my post after it's published – sometimes I'll think of a better title, delete the whole post, and publish again.
