Avast Ye Maties! It's Talk Like A Pirate Day


Talk Like a Pirate Day only comes once a year (on September 19th)

On talk like a pirate day, everyone talks as if they were a pirate. For instance, instead of saying something like this:

The commitee has decided to reallocate your time to the filing group. We look forward to the exciting new synergies between these departments.

You would say this:

Aye matey, those scalawags in their fine breeches want ye’ to move o’er with the scurvy dogs yonder. If ye’ don’t come back with some fine booty, we be keelhaulin’ you next morn!
Some choice phrases can be found here

Of course the State of CT celebrates "Take Money from Citizens Like A Pirate Day", every day. Arrrggghhh.

Ooh...can I send my representatives letters in pirate speak?

Like maybe Senator Chambers who, to make a point about how frivolous lawsuits need to be protected, filed a frivolous lawsuit against God?

I can maybe make him walk the plank.
