Shiver Me Timbers

It’s International Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Here’s a great way to celebrate, Mango Languages gives you the opportunity to learn Pirate.

Instruction includes five lessons, including how to give sailing commands, greet a superior & express surprise.  And also provides history and grammar notes. Grammar notes! Use the second person pronoun Ye. And learn the definition of a bilge or a gentlemen o’ fortune.  (For the other 364 days a year, Mango Languages offers over 60 different courses.  It’s a terrific resource we found via our library.)

Since 1995, September 19th offers a boatload of fun.  This year Krispy Kreme is offering a free doughnut for those ordering in pirate, and a free dozen for those wearing pirate costume.

2 Thoughts on “Shiver Me Timbers

  1. The local Pirates in Pittsburgh play baseball. Let’s go Bucs! An important weekend series starts tonight vs. Brewers. We hope to be playing into “Buctober”. Fans wave their pirate flags as we “raise the Jolly Roger” after a victory.
