Well, it's talk like a pirate day now... And I'm talking like a pirate, even in this post...  :pir-look:
Think not?
Well, I would say it is a big stereotype that all that slang stuff if how pirates spoke/speak, I'd think they'd all speak differently in some way.   :pir-grin:
Hehehe.

True. Although most of them were uneducated so they might have used a large amount of slang.

So is there any TLAPD stories to share?

My girlfriend and I went out for some tea. That was about it. But I did wear a bandana!

I celebrated it by talking normally, while everyone else made fools of themselves. For various reasons, I think that shouting "ARR" all day is stupid, and I am against the romanticizing  of pirates, for various reasons.
Just returned from a 3 or so year dark age, so just getting back into the swing of things. :)

Seems he's confused it with "Talk Like a Parrot" day.

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!
