Amusing Monday: It’s ‘Talk Like a Pirate Day’ today

Shiver me timbers! It’s that time of year again. A special day to talk like a pirate.

We be plunderin’ the Internet for amusing scraps on this International Talk Like a Pirate Day. If ye want to know how this special day came to be, heave ho and go back to “Watching Our Water Ways” from last year, or visit the official website of the scurvy dogs who started it all.

This year, I be offering ye some video treasure, songs and such. Patrick Penzance kicks up a yarn in the video player on this page. And the videos below should bring ye round to the spirit of the event.

I be wishin’ that “Freaking News” would continue the Photoshop theme “If pirates ruled the world,” with well-known folks dressed as pirates. But here be some galleries of images submitted in the past:
