Ahoy me hearties! Today be international talk like a pirate day. Avast ye scurvy dogs, it be time to cast your grammatical skills to Davy Jones’ locker and start talkin’ like a rum drunk seadog! Arg!
Ye thinks I be a liar? Talk like a Pirate day be a real holiday! Aye, it was birthed in 1995, when the young buccaneer Cap’n Slappy (Mark Summer) cried “Aaaarr!” after being blown down in during a game of racquetball. He and his heartie, Ol’Clumbucket (John Baur) declared a holiday from the event, and before they could say “shiver me timbers” the day was internationally famous. It be true! Talk like a pirate day be recognized in de United States, Australia, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands (where they be speaking Dutch pirate lingo).
Arrgh! This day cannot be celebrated properly without arts and crafts! Pirate crafts be my favorite! I love them pirate costumes, little pirate dollies, pirate jewelry, and pirate decorations. In honor of this fair holiday, get ye crafting skills out and make some pirate booty! Pull out your parrot, daggers, and doubloons. It be time to celebrate de golden age of piracy with arts and crafts! And don’t forget to check out all the crafting booty on artfire.com!
