Avast, Ye Mateys! It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day!

September 19 is International Talk Like a Pirate Day

How fun is that! Apparently, back in 1995 a couple of cool dudes from Oregon dreamed up International Talk Like a Pirate Day. These guys are right up our alley! Aarrrr!

Who doesn’t like watching pirate movies and getting in character with some pirate accessories?

In keeping with the fun, here’s a short Youtube video that gives some handy tips on how to get going with the pirate dialect!

Dialect is important, but ye must have yer lingo down or ye end up sound’n like a scurvy dog! Best get yer self shipshape or risk end’n up in Davey Jones’ locker!

This WikiHow post has some excellent tips on perfecting your pirate persona. For example, you should slur your words, drop g’s and r’s from words and mumble! Heck, that won’t be hard for some of us!

Here is a list of a few pirate terms to practice. We found them on Pirate Treasure Now be sure to head over there and see their complete list.

  • Ahoy, me Hearties! – “Hello, my friends!”
  • Blow me down! – expression of shock of disbelief (think “Holy Crud!”)
  • Hornswaggle – to steal money or belongings
  • Me – my
  • Scuttle – to sink a ship
  • Ye – you

If these terms get you giggling, then perhaps you’re a pirate at heart! We are, too! In fact, we have some pirate cozies and signs that are perfect for setting the pirate stage around your home or bar. Take a look…
