Celebrate Talk Like A Pirate Day

Well, this post is about two days too late! But arrghh, who cares! The world would be a better place anyway if every day was Talk Like A Pirate Day! Maybe not. So it might no longer be September 19 (official Talk Like A Pirate Day) but that doesn’t mean you can no longer pick up this shirt. In fact, quite the opposite is true. You can pick up Omnitarian’s Corsair Class from Fair & Bare now for just £16. And hey, think of it this way: buy this shirt now and you’ll be super ready come September 19, 2010.

Talk Like A Pirate

And for those of you who are entirely confused about this holiday, here’s what Wikipedia had to say:

International Talk Like a Pirate Day (ITLAPD) is a parodic holiday created in 1995 by John Baur (Ol’ Chumbucket) and Mark Summers (Cap’n Slappy), of Albany, Oregon,[1] U.S., who proclaimed September 19 each year as the day when everyone in the world should talk like a pirate.[1] For example, an observer of this holiday would greet friends not with “Hello,” but with “Ahoy, me hearty!” The holiday, and its observance, springs from a romanticized view of the Golden Age of Piracy. The holiday is a major observance in the religion of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
