Arrrr, Today is Talk like a Pirate Day! Yes, today is a day to channel your inner pirate and celebrate a day dedicated to the many swashbucklers who sailed the high-seas looking for a bounty of treasure.
According to an USA Today report on Sept. 18, Talk like a Pirate Day has been going on for more than a decade and is growing in popularity every year. This year you can score some great freebies at Krispy Kreme doughnuts, but you will have to “earn” them.
The doughnut giants are celebrating the TLP Day by giving a free glazed donut to anyone who talks like a pirate. Simple enough, right? According to the Krispy Kreme website, if you talk like a pirate, you get a free glazed doughnut, but if you dress like a pirate you will receive a free dozen doughnuts.
You may want to pull that old pirate Halloween costume out early this year and head over to your local Krispy Kreme.
Be sure to check out the official Talk like a Pirate Day website for fun activities, pirate sayings and anything and everything you ever wanted to know about this fun holiday. You can even ask Cap'n Slappy a question!
So today instead of greeting your friends and co-workers with the normal “hello” surprise them with a loud “Ahoy matey, today is National Talk like a Pirate Day!”
