Welcome to the one and only, official, accept-no-substitutes Talk Like A Pirate Day Web site.
Ever since Dave Barry mentioned us in his nationally syndicated newspaper column in 2002, what once was a goofy idea celebrated by a handful of friends has turned into an international phenomenon that shows no sign of letting up. Maybe you read about us on line.. Maybe you caught one of our radio or TV interviews. Or maybe you just stumbled on to our site while googling around for sites your mother probably wouldn't approve of. Or perhaps you're one of the millions of people from South Africa to the South Pole, from New York to the Pacific Northwest, who've made it your own personal excuse to party like pirates every September 19th (and sometimes for days before and after)!
However you got here, stick around an' learn all about September 19 - International Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Q: What kind of socks does a pirate wear?
L O L
“Let me be clear.” “Um . . . uh . . . “
Oh. You didn’t mean the pirate in the White House?
To ARRRRR is human!
Tom Smith is a rotund “filker” (composer of songs set to the tune of popular songs, a la Weird Al, or his own original science fiction related ditties) who has appeared at science fiction & furry conventions. He wrote (and here, performs) the official song of TLAPD.
Is there a “Talk like a mobster day”...If not I think there should be.
“Hey, howya dooin?”
Fuhgeddaboudit! That’ll never happen.
Well, shiver me timbers...ain’t gunna be able to keep this up all day...
(That’s what HE said....)
I’ll be playing me horn pipe and drink me grog.
Does this mean we all have to learn to speak whatever language they speak in somalia?
I hope you don’t mind a little off color joke for Halloween:
Cutest lil’ guy came to the door in his pirate costume. Must have about six years old. So precious.
I asked: “Mr. pirate, where are your buccaneers?”
He replied: “Under me buckin’ ‘at!”
Why aren’t kids allowed to watch pirate movies?
Because they’re rated ARRRRRR
White folks greed leaves a world in need.
Dem folks not paying their fare share.
Hope. Change. Yes we can.
Uh Uh Uh Uh Uh
Let me be perfectly clear.
It's that or a staff meeting. About a tossup.
A little boy sees a man with an eye patch, a hook and a wooden leg and walks up to him and asks, “Are you a pirate, sir?”
“Yarrgh, indeed I am, lad,” says the man.
The boy asks him, “How did you get your hook?”
The pirate responds, “Well, me lad, it was a beautiful day out on the Caribbean when we were makin’ ready to board a merchant ship off Bermuda. But they were ready for us, they were, an’ as we were takin’ the ship the cap’n lopped off me ‘and with ‘is cutlass.”
The boy then asks, “And how did you get your wooden leg?”
The pirate says, “We were sailin’ along the cost of Venezuela when we were sighted by a British frigate. They opened fire on us an’ a cannon shot took me leg.”
Then the boy asks, “How did you get your eye patch?”
The pirate says, “I lost me eye to a seagull.”
“It pecked your eye out?” says the boy.
“No, laddie,” the pirate answers. “The little bastard crapped in me eye. It was about a week after I got me ‘ook.”
heard that too only my version was “on me buckin’ head!”
Q: Why can’t little pirate kids learn to say their ABC’s ?
A: Because they get stuck on the letter RRRRRRRRRRRRRRR....
T’anks, me hearty!
Sure ‘n ‘tis that time of the year again. The sun’s o’er the yardarm and ‘tis time to splice the mainbrace. I’ll be over the barrel if I get three sheets to the wind, but ‘tis a risk I’ll take. So raise yer flagons, ye landlubbin’ scalawags!
A variation on a favorite of mine:
What did the amorous pirate say to the wench? “ARRRR, prepare to be boarded! ARRRRR!”
Ok, here’s one.
Why does it take pirates so long to learn the alphabet?
Because they send years at C!
Happy Pirates Day!!!!
Arrgh Matey, gotta get this report done.
Hey, I’m just sayin’!
What, you want they should make a new fake holiday on the calendar?
