About Talk Like a Pirate Day

Talk Like a Pirate Day was dreamed up in 1995 by John Baur and Mark Summers while playing a game of racquetball started slinging the pirate slang. The two had so much fun gabbing like pirates they decided that a national holiday was in order. For seven years the two kept Talk like a Pirate Day pretty much to themselves but in 2002 John happened upon Dave Barry, a Pulitzer prize winning syndicated columnist’s email address. Email was exchanged between the two and Dave Barry decided to write a story about the proposed holiday, the rest is history. Talk Like a Pirate Day soon become a National Holiday.

Here’s some pirate lingo to get you started from the Talk Like a Pirate site.

Ahoy! - Hello!
Avast! - Stop and give attention. It can be used in a sense of surprise, Whoa! Get a load of that! which today makes it more of a Check it out or No way! or Get off!
Aye! - Why yes, I agree most heartily with everything you just said or did.
Beauty – The best possible pirate address for a woman.
Arrr! - This one is often confused with arrrgh, which is of course the sound you make when you sit on a belaying pin.
