The first Talk Like A Pirate Day ever


WORLD'S FIRST
TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

When was the world's first Talk Like a Pirate Day?

On June 6, 1995 John Baur, AKA "Ol' Chumbucket", and Mark Summers, AKA "Cap'n Slappy", were playing racquetball when one of the got slightly hurt and belted out a random pirate expletive.

After more racquetball and more pirate lingo they decided that what the world really needed was a new holiday; Talk Like A Pirate Day.

September 19 was selected as it was his ex wife's birthday, the only day he'd remember and thus September 19, 1995 was the first Talk Like A Pirate Day but only Mark and John celebrated it until 2002.

In 2002 they sent an email to American syndicated humour columnist Dave Barry who happened to like the idea and promoted it and from there Talk Like A Pirate Day grew to the holiday we know and love today.

Arrrrr matey!, if you need to polish up on your pirate lingo you can do so here.
