Today is Talk Like a Pirate Day. Thanks to Shawn over at Hoosierplew for the heads up on this one.
I love pirates. So naturally, I was excited to hear that this day existed. I have a co-worker who has been marking the days off his calendar until today. I thought it would be a fun day. He has been talking like a pirate all morning and something tells me he'll probably be able to keep it up for the whole day. He's ruining my love of piracy. And his "Yar!" is a total disgrace. If you can't properly "Yar!," you shouldn't be trying to speak like a pirate.
Isn't it funny how when you're doing something that annoys other people, it's so much fun for you. If I would've been the first one to start talking like a pirate all day, I would've thought it was great. Now I'm annoyed. So make sure you're the first one to start talking like a pirate today, or your day may be ruined. And be sure you know how to give a good "Yar!"
