Talk Like a Pirate Day freebies are here! On Sept. 19, 2013, people around the country celebrate "Talk Like a Pirate Day" where people (you guessed it) talk like a pirate... ay! Several sites including All Alabama have listed all of the fun things that you can for free on this fun and festive day... if you so choose.
For starters, Facebook is taking part in this quirky holiday by allowing users to change the "language" that they use on the site to "English (pirate)." Then "ye" can tell all "yer" friends to do the same. How fun! Next, a lot of food places are giving away things in honor of pirates today.
Talk Like a Pirate Day freebies at Krispy Kreme will earn you a free donut just for giving your best pirate imitation. Want a dozen delicious donut treats? Head to a Krispy Kreme location decked out in pirate garb and your wish will be granted. Long John Silver's is also offering freebies to those who want to talk like a pirate. You can get a free piece of "classic whitefish" if you say "Arrr" and make the request.
Other local places are offering freebies too so if you want to take advantage, you should check some of your local eateries and their websites. According to Philly.com, Dunkin' Donuts is celebrating with an online contest. If you tweet their account with a menu item in "pirate speak" with the hashtag #PirateDDay, you will be entered to win a handsome treasure. That's totally worth it, right?
So, Talk Like a Pirate Day freebies can be scooped up today only... and if you're not on the market for any of the things being offered, you might as well just give your best pirate impression to a co-worker or family member for the heck of it.
