It was two years ago, and I believe Donvitti led the charge on Delaware’s blogworld. I was just beginning my reading of blogs and probably, solely because of all the fun that persisted throughout that day (check out one of Cassandra’s finer moments), I kept at it, and today here I am…

It’s appeal is that it is so outrageous. And one can’t let themselves be bested by their friends in pirate speak….. And so, each entry ante’s up the next until one is laughing the entire day…

We may not be as much fun now.. We may have lost our luster… but for those that want to give it a shot, here is the Wikipedia version of how the “Day” came about…

And here is the Official “Talk Like A Pirate Website”

Here are the official lyrics: Here is the official song... (warning: as sung by real pirates, it’s a little harsh)

Google has a pirate talk search engine here…..

To those who listen to radio, this is not a new thing. Most DJ’s give it a try sometime throughout the day… so no doubt you have probably heard of this day before.. But on the airwaves, unless you are practiced at pirate speak, it sounds amateurish…. something that doesn’t happen on blogs… We do things right here…

There is even a pirate keyboard for those serious about the attempt….

So not for me, but for blogdom in general, I would ask that during the twenty-four hours of Saturday, September 19th, that pirate talk at least make its’ appearance here across our media. For helpers here is some references to terms that can be used.

Those of you with facebook, can drop down to the bottom of your page, change your language from English (US) to English (Pirate) no kidding… Twitterites can go here...

“And, t’ make it easy, a handy, dandy pirate translator be here. “….
