It be the finest and proudest of all the holidays, International Talk Like A Pirate Day! I’m right sure that most of ya do be familiar with the ins and outs of the pirate lingo, but even if you’re the rankest of landlubbers, there’s no need to fear! We’re here to aid you in navigating the perilous linguistic tides of this most glorious day.

The most important rule — or guideline, if you will — is that you’re allowed encouraged to be silly. In fact, that be the main point of this whole venture. The finest booty that you can win today is a laugh, so worry not if you say “Yar!” when you meant “Aye!” Tis the spirit of the thing that be the most vital.

It’s also a right grand idea to take a listen to your favorite pirates speech patterns, so ya can best emulate their locution. My personal go-to be the cat from The Last Unicorn. Other choices include Pirates of the Caribbean, Muppet Treasure Island, and Hook.

Now, be off with ye! Don’t forget to hoist a mug of grog and sing some sea shanties with your mates today!
