As everyone knows, tomorrow is Talk Like a Pirate Day. As Dave Barry wrote in the humor column that launched the previously unheard-of event:

Talking like a pirate will infuse your everyday conversations with romance and danger. So join the movement! On September 19, do not answer the phone with ”hello.” Answer the phone with ”Ahoy me hearty!”

Every year on the 19th of September (no, it doesn’t “adjust” like national holidays to make a convenient three-day weekend) I enjoy a little pirate banter with me hearties. I’m looking forward to tomorrow.
