Talk Like a Pirate Day is Tomorrow!

Tomorrow is one of my favorite holidays of all time! Tomorrow is Talk Like a Pirate Day and today we need to prepare for tomorrow’s celebration. Even airship pirates should partake in this most important of pirate holidays.

First, the most crucial part of Talk Like a Pirate Day is actually talking like a pirate. For those of you who are not familiar with pirate lexicon, I’ve a helpful a crash course video to help you brush up on piratical linguistics.

In addition to talking like a pirate, you can also choose to dress like a pirate. For airship pirates, tomorrow is the perfect day to pull out your airship pirate wardrobe and wear it proudly. I remember celebrating Talk Like a Pirate Day when I was in college, dressed in my fully pirate garb and giving full answers to my professor’s questions on course material in Pirate. Last year, my no fun office wasn’t in the least bit interested in Talk Like A Pirate Day. This year’s prospects are thankfully much better.

What was best about talking and dressing like a pirate on Talk Like a Pirate Day was the unsuspecting hordes that don’t realize it was a day for celebration until it’s too late.

So have a happy Talk Like a Pirate Day. May your sails be full, your fires high, and the adventures tomorrow be ones to remember! Yo ho ho!

More Talk Like a Pirate Day!

I hope everyone’s Talk Like a Pirate Day is in full swing and that you are enjoying the event! To help flesh out your celebrations, I’ve got some more pirate themed goodies for your enjoyment.

First off is a 2006 edition of “The Theme Show” for Talk Like a Pirate Day. You can download the full episode from their website here and preview the set list. The compilation is rather respectable (aside from the Nick Jr. additions, which I simply can’t explain) and should provide excellent music for your Talk Like a Pirate Day Party, or perhaps provide suitable entertainment on your way to piratical misdeeds.

In case you need some inspiration for a suitably pirate name, consider using this generator for some inspiration.

For all my DIYers, consider marking this Talk Like a Pirate Day building your own mini cannon! Mwahah!

Slightly Steampunk: Mini Cannon

Today, I have a surprising little invention for your amusement, the Mini Cannon!

This minute weapon packs a surprising punch. I certainly would not want to be in its line of fire. Maybe the maker of this cannon could use it on the person who made the soundtrack for the video…

Now, if only this cannon came with these:

Arr!

All this talk about pirates and cannons reminds me that Talk Like a Pirate Day is on September 19th, so mark your calendars and start getting ready for one of my favorite holidays. It’s on a Sunday this year, which slightly disappoints me because I won’t have a reason to talk like an (airship) pirate at work, but it’s probably for the better. I work in an office with a lot of people from many different countries, so I doubt it would be fully appreciated, let alone comprehended.
