Ahoy, mates! Today be International Talk Like a Pirate Day. So all ye wannabe swashbucklers and wenches, today be your day. Hoist the jolly roger over your desk, tell that scallywag in the cubicle next to you to swab the deck, then search for treasure in the copy room.
Ye can even pick a pirate name for the day. I thought of Bloody Sandy Beach but couldn’t get past the menstrual references so with a nod to The Princess Bride, settled on Dread Pirate Beech.
Pirate costumes are optional, though if ye be a man with a gold hoop earring, ye best be in a costume as pirates are the only men who can pull off that look!
Now where’s me bottle of rum? Arrrrgh!!!
