Shiver me timbers!

Ahoy me mateys!  Tomorrow is International Talk Like a Pirate Day!  Never heard of it, eh?  Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about it:

“…the day is the only holiday to come into being as a result of a sports injury. [Summers] has stated that during a racquetball game between Summers and Baur, one of them reacted to the pain with an outburst of "Aaarrr!", and the idea was born. That game took place on June 6, 1995, but out of respect for the observance of D-Day, they chose Summers’ ex-wife’s birthday, as it would be easy for him to remember.”

As Talk Like a Pirate Day falls on a weekend this year, me hearties, why don’t ye observe it today by watching me favorite pirate video?  If this doesn’t make ye yo-ho-ho, then yer a yellow-bellied scurvy dog.  Yar.

  1. That’s one of Kenn Nesbitt’s! He’s one of our authors! His book “My Hippo Has the Hiccups” is a funny poetry collection with audio CD for kids. Thanks Rachel – I will pass this on to his publicist. 🙂
