Talk Like a Pirate Day History
While not as popular as [Christmas] or [Arbor Day], Talk Like a Pirate Day is a recognized and heartily celebrated international holiday. On September 19th, people awake transformed: their voices deeper, their usual pedestrian walk replaced by a seamanâ€™s swagger, and whenever they speak, they speak with the voice of a pirate.
Founded by [John Baur and Mark Summers] during a raquetball game and, coincidentally, occuring the same dayâ€™s as Markâ€™s ex-wifeâ€™s birthday, Talk Like a Pirate Day has taken the world by storm. At my office, for instance, everyone talks like a pirate on September 19th. Thereâ€™s no end to the fun as clients call and are subjected to the blast of â€œAhoy matey, what can we do for ye scurvy dogs this fine day?â€
The thing just sort of grew, and then took off in 2002 when Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Dave Barry got wind of it and [wrote about it in his Miami Herald Column].
I'm guessing you don't listen to the "Bob & Tom" show on the radio.
Plus their own websites;
