Talk like a Pirate day

I thought that starred with the church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster which was a cute way of poking fun at the people advocating that creationist theory should be given equal prominence to Darwinism in schools.

Re: Talk like a Pirate day

Oh jeez, lighten up.

And it wasn’t Disney who sanitized pirates - it was Errol Flynn, Burt Lancaster and even Marlon Brando (or Clark Gable) though the last two played mutineers.

I think J.M.Barrie predates those actors.

Re: Talk like a Pirate day

I tend to talk like a pirate a sailor, a construction worker and a steel worker every day. Don't need a holiday to tell me.
