Talk Like A Pirate Day 2010
September 17, 2010 by Post Team
In fact, two friends, John Baur and Mark Summers, did exactly that. The idea was born in Albany, Oregon, that to my knowledge is not nationally known for his relationship with the pirates. This is what happened.
John and Mark were playing racquetball when, for reasons not clear to either of them now, they started insulting each other in pirate slang. They realized that it was very funny and one of them said: “We have a Talk Like a Pirate Day.” They decided to start Talk Like a Pirate Day, and picked up Sept. 19 because Summers is the former wife’s birthday. The story might have ended there had it not been for Dave Barry, who mentioned it in his column in national newspaper and Talk Like a Pirate Day off.
Around the world and even hundreds of kilometers above it, people celebrate International Talk like a Pirate Day every September 19. Has been held by millions of people on all seven continents – yes, even at the South Pole – and in the International Space Station!
The two friends – now going by the characters of pirates Chumbucket Ol ‘Captain Slappy and buckles have swashes its Gulf of Mexico to the Puget Sound, from Los Angeles to Chicago to Philadelphia. Were carried out in a glamorous Las Vegas
locality, in libraries, bookstores, schools and seedy bars.
This year the boys will celebrate the festival more than 5,000 miles away. Captain Slappy will be in Alaska as a guest of the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Chumbucket Ol ‘moved in 2008 to a sunny island in the Caribbean and can not think of a reason to leave. www.talklikeapirate.com
