The celebration of International Talk Like A Pirate Day has fans around the country looking to cause a little mischief on Thursday, September 19.

The extraordinary fun day is one that even land lovers can appreciate. From the clothes you wear to the chatter you share, if your pirate communication skills are up to date, there won’t be any trouble from others. Or you can choose to make them walk the wretched plank.
So how can you appreciate International Talk Like A Pirate Day even more? We thought you would never ask mate. It’s as easy as channeling your inner Captain Jack Sparrow and looking at the world from a pirate ship’s perspective.
