Talk Like a Pirate Day only comes once a year (on September 19th), this year it falls on Friday. On talk like a pirate day, everyone talks as if they were a pirate. For instance, instead of saying something like this:
The commitee has decided to reallocate your time to the filing group. We look forward to the exciting new synergies between these departments.
You would say this:
Aye matey, those scalawags in their fine breeches want ye' to move o'er with the scurvy dogs yonder. If ye' don't come back with some fine booty, we be keelhaulin' you next morn!
Translate your work into pirate speak:
Your pirate name is:
Black Jack Kidd
Like anyone confronted with the harshness of robbery on the high seas, you can be pessimistic at times. Even though you're not always the traditional swaggering gallant, your steadiness and planning make you a fine, reliable pirate. Arr!
And finally, a cute pirate dog!
