It’s International Talk Like a Pirate Day!


GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Shiver me timbers, it’s International Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Whether it be a traditional pirate look or some ECU purple and gold, it’s time to put on your best pirate gear mateys.

The International Day was created in 1995 by Ol’ Chumbucket and Cap’n Slappy.

It allegedly all began with an innocent game of racquetball between the two friends. Now, every September 19 is International Talk Like A Pirate Day.

One of them reacted to a play with an outburst resembling a pirate noise and the idea was born.

Even Google Search and Facebook have the option to chose “Pirate” as a language choice.
