International Talk Like a Pirate Day is celebrated the world over in almost every country on the Planet.  While not a National Holiday this event is widely celebrated throughout the cities and towns of America and Europe.  The Facebook group boast over 13,000 members and this phenomenon just keeps growing every year – on September 19th 

“John, I was editing this week’s Dave Barry column and it’s about … Is this you?”

It was. The nationally syndicated columnist and Pulitzer Prize winning writer of “distinguished commentary” (the Pulitzer committee’s description, not his own) became convinced of the great potential of such a holiday. Or maybe he had run out of fresh column ideas and didn’t want to do another one on toilet training his infant daughter. Either way, he had written the column.

And hell broke loose. Go to Talk Like a Pirate.com for more information

Ahoy me darlin's! We've recently gotten notice that if ye switch yer settings on The Facebook from "pirate" to a more mundane language, ye (apparently) can't switch back.

Proceed accordingly.

Why would ye want to?

Is it talk like s pirate day yet ??? Hell yes everyday is talk like s pirate day

Is there a workaround to it, like switching the locale? e.g. intl/save_locale/dialog/?loc=en_US and change the locale to a pirate locale? Anyone find out what it is?

Ye act like this be a bad thing, ye scurvy dogs!

Oh for fuck's sake...

I'll never switch it off!

Mine has always been in pirate. Always. It be much more interestin' t'see than that bilgewater english.

Arrgh! Look at what you’ve done to me, Cap’n!

I'm fine with staying piratey forever . 😄

Just the thought o this has shivered me timbers.

International Talk Like A Pirate Day fell on my birthday one year, so I had a Pirates of the Carribean themed birthday party.

I spoke pirate all day at Gasparilla this January. I easily switched back to boring ole English. 😏😂

How do I do that??

That's weird, I saw your post and the English(Pirate) option was available for me to pick. It's under English (as a dialect rather than its own language) not Pirate that may trip people up.

Ah I was wondering why all my ahhhs kept coming out as ahhhs instead of - of for Christ’s sake autocorrect!!

you might have to wait until september. Also, you have to do it from a real computer, not a phone

Smarmy Nigel Grimm here. We be keelhaulin and plank walkin those scurvy varmints

Aye, I want me sea dog tongue back.

This must be recent... I switch every year for the week of Talk Like a Pirate and then switch back to mundane.... Umm.. 🤔

I think we gather the mates, dress in our finest regalia and blast a cannon through the sidewall of their headquarters!

I can’t access the change to pirate language anymore 😖

I dont have Pirate on my language settings any more either

I can’t find pirate anymore.

Them scurvy dogs at Facebook need to walk the plank!

Shiver me timbers!

And now, to celebrate the holiday, here is "The Night Before Christmas Aboard the Festering Bail, as written by Cap'n Slappy for "The Curacao Caper."

The Festering Boil is the pirate ship commanded by Cap'n Slappy and Ol' Chumbucket in a series of stories that appeared in their blog. The fifth story, "The Curacao Caper," begins at Christmas, with the crew of the Boil in a low state, having just barely escaped the clutches of their sworn enemy, Lady Fanny, and defeated her plot to take over the world. To lift their spirits, crew member (and shop steward) Cementhands McCormack regales them with his version of the classic holiday poem.

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the ship
There was nothing to munch on – not even a chip.
The flagons were empty.
The rum was all gone.
All pirates were sober and would be till dawn.

(The crew moaned on cue – in keeping with tradition.)

With the crew in their hammocks I’d long hit the sack
For the watchmen were watchful, there’d be no attack.
When down on the wharf there arose such a ruckus
That I fell from my bunk on my back and my tuchus.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But Cementhands McCormack and four kegs of beer!

(The crew cheered on cue – in keeping with tradition.)

His nosey was rosey from having been drunk
But a selfish man, never – of us he had thunk.
He’d gambled with locals who weren’t that clever
“Such patsies!” he said, “I could pick them forever.”
Doubloons were still spilling from his big britches pockets.
“They gambled their watches, their bracelets and lockets!”
But then he had thoughts of his mates on the boat.
“What good are my winnings? To whom can I gloat?”
And then he remembered there was naught to drink
And this made him thoughtful – the big man would think.
“Well, it’s Christmas” he thought, “And there’s nothing to do –
Should I blow it on harlots? Nah – BOOZE FOR THE CREW!”

(In keeping with tradition, the crew recites the phrase, “BOOZE FOR THE CREW” with Ol’ Chumbucket followed by traditional raucous cheering)

So the big man bought kegs, he bought bottles, a flagon.
And he piled them up high in a little red wagon
That he dragged cross the cobblestone streets of the town
Some bottles fell off and the flagon fell down
But he grabbed the last bottle, in his pants he did tuck it.
“This one’s for the captain – and his pal, Chumbucket!”
What joy there arose when he finally arrived
For the lack of the drink made the crew feel deprived
Now they toasted and boasted, they guzzled and swilled
Had the wagon been bigger, they would have been killed
By alcohol poisoning – no doubt about it
But it wouldn’t be piratey Christmas without it.
And the big man, he bellowed before he got plastered,

“MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL OF YOU PIRATEY BASTARDS!”

Avast! We got this e-message in a bottle today from Dr. Kathleen Cornely of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Providence College.

"Just wanted to let you guys know that on Tuesday, I informed my biochemistry class that it was “Talk Like a Pirate Day” and that it was related to our class topic for the day! How? We were discussing the protein collagen. Collagen makes up connective tissue in bones, teeth, ligaments, muscle, tendons, etc. An important part of the biosynthetic process of collagen involves an enzyme, prolyl hydroxylase, which doesn’t work unless it has vitamin C! As I am sure that you know, many early pirates suffered from the disease scurvy (which produces weakened collagen, due to the lack of vitamin C)."

You know those wild and crazy biochemists! We want to go to the next faculty party, and that's a fact!

The biggest holiday of the year is coming!

Thursday September 14th, 2017 - 11:03 am

Well THAT'S disappointing! Krispy Kreme Doughnuts has decided NOT to take part in Talk Like a Pirate Day this year.

No doughnuts! At least, the corporation isn't playing, though individual stores might. But all is not lost.

For the last four years if you dressed like a pirate and walked into a Krispy Kreme on Sept. 19 they gave you – free – a dozen glazed doughnuts.

Not this year. They're not doing the promotion this year.

Are we gonna let those corporate cruller cooks put a hole in our holiday fun! Hell no!

I'm not telling you NOT to deck yerself out in your finest pirate togs on Tuesday and go to your nearby Krispy Kreme. Just remember that they probably won't give you a free dozen doughnuts for your trouble – though we pirates can be fairly persuasive. But I plan to go in anyway – in full regalia, to show them what they're missing. If you do too, you'll get a chance to express your indignation – nay, your outrage! – that they've gone over the side and left us in the lurch!

But wait! All is not completely lost. Our friends at Long John Silvers (at least they still love us) have upped the ante.

This year they are NOT offering a free piece of fish for those who come in dressed like a pirate. Oh no! They're offering a bar of gold!

Not gold gold, of course. Don't be silly. But this Sept. 19 they're giving away, free, their new Deep Fried Twinkie!

That's sort of like a bar of gold, if you turn your head a little and squint your eyes.

WHAT! Every YEAR me and the kids get dressed up and go to Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. And we buy stuff too, we don't just go for the free stuff.

Avast, be there any mates wit mates at Dunkin? Opportunity be knockin for a replacement to sail in!

Yes, VERY disappointed with Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, but I already told them a while ago when I heard, that they were making a BIG mistake as every year TLAPD gets bigger and bigger. They mentioned TLAPD on the local Washington DC news today already. The really cute pics Krispy Kreme used to post afterwards were gRRRReat PRRRRRRR too! Their loss!! Going to Mutiny Pirate Bar & Island Grille tonight for their TLAPD celebration and dinner. One of the best pirate and tiki bars around and the food lives up to the drinks!!! 😍☠️⚔️🏝️🍵🍹❤️

ARRRRR! Happy Talk loike a Poirate day, shipmates! Today I be goin' to St Ives, which is near Penzaaance, but this yur bein Cornwall, we do all talk loike Pirates every day, see, so every day is TLAP day! Yay! (Pass me parrot, matie!)

Mutiny!!! Hopefully Dunkin' Donuts will participate in 'International Talk Like A Pirate Day' instead. KK is making a big mistake. Boycott, MUTINY, as you all see fit.

Probably just too many of us now.

Wait, I can get a Twinkie that's been fried in fish grease? Mm mmmm....

Only tried them once think ive enjoyed better èvery where else

Krispy Kreme Australia is giving free donuts! 😍😍

My local Krispy Kreme is doing the promotion but we only get 4 free doughnuts. Better than nothing.

Krispy Kreme is nasty anyway. Nothing of value was lost.

We can just go to Arrrrrby's instead!

So what kind of candy-ass pirates are you? You want donuts? Plunder Krispy Kreme. But, Tim Horton's has better plunder.

A dozen donuts for free is a tall order.

You could dress as a pirate and buy a different snack so krispy kreme wonder why they didnt earn as many gold coins as the previous tlap day

Bummer about Krispy Kreme 🙁 . Don't have a Long John Silvers here, but a fried Twinkie doesn't appeal to me anyway.

Even sadder, they are a far cry from the fluffy, cloud-like confection they once were. I was very excited to spot a store then even more disappointed to discover the doughnuts were little, greasy things that were not a shadow of their former selves. Never did see a company destroy itself on success like KK!

Caroleann Santa-Moletz Need to boycott Krispy Kreme matey!

Closest Krispy Kreme to me be three arrrrrr's away... ARRRRR!!!

Blast ye skallywags! No pirate cultural appropriation day? We are duly offended!

Shiver me timbers...I'll skewer those pastry pushing scallawags!

You can still go to Krispy Kreme and scarf down a dozen glazed doughnuts. You know what you get? Diabetes. Argh, you get diabetes.

www.piratesontheprom.co.uk/gallery More pirates than you can shake a cudgel at here in Penzance, me hearties! The town keeps trying to break the record for 'Most pirates gathered in one place' but missed out this year by not very many.

Every year I look forward to free donuts and fish, which results in lovely diarrhea! It is my Birthday as well! Now, what pillaging and plundering be left? Is this the end of the Golden Age of Piracy? At least my cutlass is sharp...me thinks someone needs to walk the plank!!!☠

Arrrr what self respecting pirate eats Krispy Creme donuts? They should be scoffing Cornish Pasties and quaffing cider by the gallon. AHARRRR! (Penzance is just down the road...)

Do you have a magic singing chamber pot? And what's its outlook on life?

Just like to say cap'n slappy what a great find and tonic you are to the start of the day ! Being someone who often talks like a pirate for no apparent reason , other than because I can. My boyf asked if I knew of ITLAPD when we were in full swing of talking like a pirate. "You're kidding me " I said "I'm gonna google it". Well ! shiver me timbers you do exist. Well done and keep up the good work ⚓️

The Pirate Party HA!

And your co-workers will be doing exactly the same.

Are you sure? I thought it needed to fail the sniff test. What kind of guy hasn't squirmed on the floor in agony while explaining to his wife "see, it was fine". ?!?

Finally the one to work too.

Only one way to know for sure!!!

If the box be a can, And in the can be some Spam Then there be no need to fret. Because you ain't reached that date yet! Arrrrrrgggggg. I be a Pirate poet

Found a can of sage in the pantry the other day that's older than my oldest brother.

Feed it to the cabin boy....arrrrr!

Don't throw it overboard. It's still good enough for Bosun's Mates and below.

If it tastes like playdough smells, it's probably not food ya ought to be eating..

LMAO too funny

Nar, gives it a wee taste, just ta be sure.

Try it on the dog first.

Ye can't arrrrrrrrbitrarily be throwin' rations overboard when the quality of a thing is beyond yer ken without havin' a look see first of the matter yerself! With the one good eye! Ye can't do it or mutiny will be afoot! (A peg, whateverrrr...)

So I help at the local food bank they say a year after the date on the package unless it's mayo then it was 3yrs after the date
