Aye, me hearties, it's that time of year again. September 19th is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. You may think I'm joking, but I'm not. Two guys known as Cap'n Slappy and Ol' Chumbucket started this event about 6 years ago and it became popular because it was mentioned by Dave Berry in an article he wrote.

Somehow it managed to catch on.

There are aids out there for those who are novice pirates.

These include:

Pirate Name Generators
English-Pirate Translator
Pirate Songs
Pirate History
Pirate Cartoons

The list on their website goes on and on and on... I take no responsibility for anything you find over there - there is some pretty strange stuff!
