• CATEGORIES: News, tomorrow is September 19, International Talk like a Pirate Day.  How did this great holiday begin?  The story is it began with a couple of guys on a racquetball court when they spontaneously slipped into piratese.  Following the match, having had more fun than ever, they decided there needed to be a ‘Talk like a pirate day’.  So, on June 6, 1995, they arbitrarily decided to make September 19 (a day picked because nothing else happened on that day) the magic day.

All they needed now was a spokesperson, someone to inform the masses.  Who better, they thought, then Dave Barry.  Well, it took 7 years, but they finally got Dave’s attention and he wrote a column about their unique holiday.
