I heard about International "Talk Like A Pirates Day" sometime yesterday and thought it was something someone here at the office made up. Not true, some folks in the states made it up 8 years ago during a tennis match, and after 6 years of talking like a pirate on this day, they decided to open it up to the world.
On a side note, I heard on the radio that Ontario was the most interested in Talk Like A Pirate day then anywhere else in the world :)
So as the big storm hits, I urge you all to batten down the hatches and talk like a pirate (howto)
It's wonderful living the life of a pirate With the freedom to take what we can And we'll sail the world over, searchin' for plunder Not fearin' to face any man, not fearin' to face any man
