September 19 is International Talk Like A Pirate Day

Pirate(PCM) International Talk Like a Pirate Day is celebrated every September 19. It was created in 1995 by John Baur (Ol’ Chumbucket) and Mark Summers (Cap’n Slappy), who decided that on September 19 every year that everyone in the world should talk like a pirate.

Getting humor columnist Dave Barry in 2002 on board gave the holiday more gravitas.

It has been recognized by The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, easter eggs online, and has been mentioned on several TV shows, has many and even a language option on Facebook. (you can change your language at the bottom of your facebook page)
