Ahoy! We here aboard the good ship Rock Paper Simple don’t approve of the bilge rats that are “real” pirates. Those guys are just rude and plus they take all your stuff! We much prefer the pirates who are actually just really fun people celebrating Talk Like a Pirate Day!
So, drink up your morning coffee, me hearties, and dream of the grog that awaits you later when you don ye boots and hat and venture forth to the local pub to regale the landlubbers with ye tales of glory… and if ye ain’t got tales of glory, make up some incredibly outlandish tales and tell those ones!
There are plenty of options for staying in theme today, such as drinking rum and talking like a pirate as well as playing your hornpipe, counting your doubloons, swabbing your decks, sharpening your cutlass, pillaging something (better stick to your refrigerator, so you don’t get arrested), and walking a plank… if you can find one.
Avast, then, ye mateys, and enjoy yourselves! To quote well-known pirate of the Caribbean, Johnny Depp: “Life’s pretty good, and why wouldn’t it be? I’m a pirate, after all.”
Also, and because I feel it’s really important to say on this day… “Why is the rum gone!?”
