Happy 2009 International Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Pirates have been getting some pretty bad press over the past year. Rightly so!

But pirate culture is a deviant offshoot of maritime culture that celebrates open sea adventure and camaraderie. Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day and that doesn’t mean learning to speak Somali but instead using lots of RRRR’s and silliness.

The Official International Talk Like a Pirate Day website.

I’ve rehashed some of my favorite piratical videos. Hope you scurvy dogs enjoy em!
