Arrr!

Wednesday, 19 September 2007 is International Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Just thought I'd spread awareness. If you need help with talking like a pirate, this video can be helpful. I also encourage all of you to try to go the entire day speaking in nothing but piratespeak (especially if you're still in school/college, and/or have a job). I did that last year, and it's actually quite a challenge.

Arrr, I wish I'd gone in to me therapist this mornin' talking pirate-talk. Shiver me timbers, but that would've been a grand time.

Bah. Not realizing it was a bump, I read through this thread very depressedly, thinking I'd missed it. Jerk.

Never mind that it says 2007 in the first post...
