Hey! Guess What Day It Is?

- Any Pirate who is worth his salt!

It's finally here. The best day of the year...no, not Christmas or New Years Eve or even your birthday! It's a shame it's only one day a year 'cause you'd probably want it celebrate it EVERY day! Okay, everyone, get ready 'cause it is....INTERNATIONAL TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY! YEY!!!

So here is your task, if you choose to accept it..

First, there's the official Pirate Personality Test. Find out what kind of pirate you are...Find your inner pirate!

Next, you have to have a proper pirate name. I mean, what kind of pirate are you if you don't have a proper pirate name?! Think Blue Beard, Black Beard, and those pirates in Treasure Island with parrots and peg legs...Pirate Name Generator!

And if you get stuck for the proper pirate words, you can use the English to Pirate Translator!

So get your Avasts and Me-Hearties on. And the only rule today is there aaaaaarrrrrghn't no rules [which, of course, is perfect for us Commentarama-ians, right? Aaaargh.]

Enjoy! And as always, feel free to discuss other stuff too, but remember you have to write like a pirate...aaaaarrrgh!

And if you want to learn more about pirates, pirating, and other such pirate-related issues...A Pirate's Glossary Of Terms!

[Disclaimer: I am cheating today and am kinda' reposting this from 2014 with a few updates...but then that is exactly what a pirate would do, aaaarrrright?]

Facebook used to have a "pirate" setting in languages that allowed you to have your page translated to Piratese for the day. I see they have removed it since the last time I gave it a try (it was really hard to understand some of what was said). All good things come to an end, I guess.

Pirate Personality: Buckthorn Varlet, Aye, you love making landlubbers walk the plank, it's better than plundering or hacking off heads. Why, you're so brutal and vicious, even your pegleg is capped with a hook. It makes you look fearsome but gives you a lot of trouble when walking across shag carpets.

Pirate Name Generator: Mad Tom Kidd, Every pirate is a little bit crazy. You, though, are more than just a little bit. Even though you're not always the traditional swaggering gallant, your steadiness and planning make you a fine, reliable pirate. Arr!

Question: What be a pirate's favorite letter?

Stacy - It's kinda' sad that it is just not as much fun anymore. We need some silly fun in our lives.

But here is Dave Barry's column that helped get it started, so may years ago. LINK
