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 Â£16. And hey, think of it this way: buy this shirt now and you’ll be super ready come September 19, 2010.
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, U.S., who proclaimed September 19 each year as the day when everyone in the world should talk like a pirate. 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.
