Talk Like a Pirate Day! - The build up!

25 posts in this topic

My Facebook is set to English (Pirate) so every day for me is Talk Like a Pirate day. :pir_laugh2:

I'm pretty stoked, but disappointed because it's on a Saturday. More fun when it's on a school day.

I was unaware of settings like these, I'll have to check it out.

I was tempted to put some of the mod's real faces on the pirates but..... ic ould do it if you guys really want to see it but you guys pic the mods. I'm probably not going to set my text to pirate. Lego is probably tring to bost sales.

Those jerks! How dare a business try and improve their sales. What's wrong with them, it's like they have to pay bills and feed themselves and their families. :pir-hmpf_bad:

That Quest for R2 was just a big commercial. This is a real event but Lego is promoting Pirates with it. I might star using pirate lingo when I post here which isn't that often. One of my teachers was obessed with pirates and taught the class some lingo which I vaugely remember.

You say that like it's a bad thing. I'm a teacher and every year on September 19 I celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day. It's too bad that it happens on Saturday this year, as it's something the kids usually enjoy doing.

For anyone's who's interested, these are the guys that started the holiday:

Last year I did have a great day talking like a pirate with my friends online. I did use the AV Voice Changer Software to change my real voice into many different pirate voices. It’s a great memory. I am gonna do it this year. :pir-cry_happy:
