Can Ye Guess What Day This Be?

If You.. er, Ye.. said "International Talk Like a Pirate Day", then you are correct. ... Sorry, I meant "Then Right ye be! Aargh!"

OK, it isn't actually "TYPE" like a Pirate day, so enough with that. Anyway, this is the second year in a row that I have remembered it, (planned today's blogtivities a week in advance, even!) meaning that I have a better track record with observance of I.T.L.A.P.D. than with many of my relatives' birthdays.

The Holiday was invented by these guys, but was popularized by newspaper columnist Dave Barry. If I try to model my humor on this blog after anyone, it is Dave Barry. So in Honor of Dave, my syndicated comedy hero, The Daily Blog of the Day will Faithfully observe I.T.L.A.P.D. this and every year. Next year I plan to dress for the occasion, but this year, I don't have an Eyepatch.

So, Spread the word to all your friends... Or I'll Keelhaul the Lot of ye!

I hate Talk Like a Pirate Day with a PASSION! I think pirates are lame to begin with, but also my ex was really into it. And really into the "joke", "hey, have you heard about the newest pirate movie? It's rated 'arrrr'"


He was REALLY lame.

Well, Valorie, you just wait til December 5th. The Annual "Day of The Ninja" or, as I prefer to call it, "International Stalk Like a Ninja Day". Then you can show those Pirate-worshipers who's BOSS.
