How to Talk Like a Pirate

First off, you need to growl a lot and sort of yell your words with a scowl on your face. Say "Arrrrr!" every now and then and gesture a lot.

Always say "me" not "my". For example, you would say "This is me ship", not "This is my ship".

Here are some words and phrases you can use to participate in this day: History of Talk Like a Pirate Day

The holiday was originally created by John Baur and Mark Summers. The idea came to them when one of them got hurt during a racquetball game and yelled out "Arrrr!". They decided it would be funny to make a whole day where people talked like pirates. They chose September 19th because it was Mark's ex-wife's birthday and he figured it would be easy for him to remember.

At first it was just something they did for fun. They figured it would never take off. Then columnist Dave Berry wrote an article about it and the day became famous. Now a lot of people celebrate the day because it's fun and silly.
