Aarrr! International Talk Like a Pirate Day

I usually try to mention this every year; a few times I've even done the day's post in pirate lingo. Such is not the case this time, but in the spirit of the day, Fr. Z offered some suggestions for commemorating the occasion, to which I add my own:

  1. Try to refer to your coworkers as "me mateys" at least once during the day.

  2. Act surprised when someone asks you a question; say "Shiver me timbers" two or three times to confuse them.

  3. Watch two episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants.

  4. Afterward, go to McDonalds and order a Crabby Patty.

  5. Root for the Pittsburgh Pirates tomorrow when they play the Milwaukee Brewers (I don't know why they aren't playing today...).

  6. Start a film club and watch the original version of Mutiny on the Bounty.

  7. If you get a call from a political fundraiser, tell them that the candidate they're calling for should be "keelhauled." Note that it doesn't matter which candidate you're talking about.

  8. Walk around with a parrot on your shoulder. 

  9. Dig a hole in your neighbor's yard; when they ask you what you're doing, tell them you're looking for buried treasure, and add that if they don't like it, you'll see them in Davy Jones' Locker.

  10. Tell the next attractive woman you meet that you're looking for booty. Make sure you aren't the one who gets keelhauled.
