I was certain I misunderstood because I never heard of an International Talk Like A Pirate day.
After hearing it a few more times, I decided to do some investigating.
What Is Talk Like A Pirate Day?
The idea of talk like a pirate day was born. The game took place on D-Day, but they chose Summer’s ex-wife’s birthday instead.
The guys sent a letter to columnist Dave Berry in 2002 about their invented holiday and it skyrocketed from there.
I don’t understand why anyone would want to talk like a pirate in the first place, but what’s more disturbing is why anyone would revere pirates!
