"Arrr!" Avast me hearties! 'Tis that day come 'round again. "Tis ye International Talk Like A Pirate Day
. Bring me a noggin of rum, now, won't ye, me matey and celebrate the day
The idea for the day
was hatched "... in 1995 on an Albany, Oregon, YMCA racquetball court. John 'Ol' Chumbucket' Baur, 54, and his friend Mark 'Cap'n Slappy' Summers, 46, began unleashing insults at one another, as pirates." Ye' rest is history.
Ol' Chumbucket, Mad Sally and all the little Chumbuckets have just recently celebrated a full year o' livin'' the pirate's life
in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
