Ay, Mateys, It Be International Talk Like a Pirate Day Yet Again
Ahoy, ye limey wenches! Today be International Talk Like a Pirate Day. If ye be livin’ ‘neath a rock fer the past decade or so, this annual holiday be a jolly excuse not only to talk like a pirate but also to dress and act like a pirate. But avast, mateys, for there are few official “events” celebratin’ this very day in the big cities, so it’s time to make yer own fun! Here be some additional ways to avoid lookin’ like a landlubber:
Play the parrrt: Highlight that lack of hygiene, me hearties. Accessorize with gold, and swash yer buckles. Add a “Silver,” “Bloody,” or “Mad” prefix to yer name. Scurvy also be fashionable today. Have fun with it. Ye could plan yer own costume parrrty!
Dirty Pirate Popsicles: Shiver me timbers! Cook up a batch of these frozen treats if ye dwell in sweltering climes.
Score a date: Here be a list of the top 10 pirate-hooker pickup lines. Me personal favorite: “Parrrdon me, but would ye mind if I fired me cannon through your porthole?”
Drink: Be it rum, grog, or swill, there be no pirates without a yo-ho-ho or two. Hoist a few pints to yer ship, even if she went to Davey Jones’s Locker long ago.
