September 19 is Talk Like A Pirate Day

Pirates line up to purchase peg legs, eyepatches, and scurvy begone on Talk Like a Pirate Day.

As Shakespeare once said, and as Pasha often quotes to the Fish Theater Players, “Mind your speech a little, lest you should m-Arrr your fortunes.” While many on board appreciate a well-placed “Arrr” now and again, International Talk like a Pirate Day (September 19) makes some of the more studious pirates among us feel underappreciated. Aren’t proper enunciation and vocabulary also the marks of a salty sailor?

At the Pirate Supply Store we are campaigning to reclaim the day for these fanciful orators. For every “Arr” spoken on Thursday, we’ll claim a dollar in The Jarr. We’ll also be sharing our favorite seaworthy verbs, which you can practice with our crew of pirate rhetoricians and the Fish Theater Players who have finally returned to their home. Huzzah! This day is ours!
