Aaaarrrrrrrrhh Ya Ready For Talk Like A Pirate Day?

Aye, Mateys!!

We at BGG started International Talk Like a Pirate Day off by making ourselves a nice piece of Pirate Toast.

What? You don't have a Pirate Toast Maker? Well, we recommend you go to AAAAAAARRRRRRchie McFee in Ballard before it walks the plank.

They do have a quite impressive collection of Pirate-y Stuff.

Go forth, ye landlubbering sea wenches and trolls and speak ye like a Pirate!! A Pint of Rum usually helps with our Pirate Tongue.

Pirates are not cool. Innocent boats and crewmembers are being extorted at gunpoint for ransoms from pirates in the High seas and Somalia. Time for the pirates to grow up and realize that piracy is about as respectable as being a pimp.

Lighten up! Of course REAL pirates are awful. Our dear close family members work on boats all around the world and put themselves at risk more than you probably do by listening to NPR in your cozy armchair. But that does not mean that we won't celebrate a holiday made up for the sake of fun, inspiring people to act silly and talk like old timey pirates. Use it as a teaching lesson for your precious snowflake instead of proselytizing on a ridiculous gossip blog.
