What is Talk Like a Pirate Day?

Talk Like a Pirate Day is a parodic holiday thought up by John Baurs and Mark Summers, two ordinary landlubbers from the States. It all started in 1995, when Baurs let out a cry of ‘Aaaarrrgghhhh’ whilst straining to reach a shot during one of their regular racquetball sessions. For the rest of the game, the pals had each other in stitches speaking in pirate slang.

How funny would it be, they thought, if there was an official holiday for talking like pirates? It took some time – and more than a little help from famous comic and fellow buccaneer-enthusiast Dave Barry – but Baurs and Summers managed to turn Talk Like a Pirate Day into an internationally-recognised holiday in 2002. Now the whole world enjoys swashbuckling fun every year on September 19th.
