Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Avast, me hearties! ‘Tis Talk Like a Pirate Day! Cast yer deadlights on tha official website http://www.talklikeapirate.com ta larn how land lubbers John “Ol’ Chumbucket” Baur and Mark “Cap’n Slappy” Summers came up with this day o’ merry-makin’. Thar’s a primer on pirate-talk fer would-be pirates along with other pirate-related swag.
If yer huntin’ fer more swashbucklin’ booty, check out A Pirate’s Who’s Who by Philip Cosse (located in Reference, call number G535 .G6). This volume includes short biographies of famous pirates such as Henry Morgan, Edward Teach and Anne Bonney. It also has biographies of lesser known pirates such as Major Stede Bonnet, who was “more to be pitied than blamed” for becoming a pirate, because his “mind had become unbalanced owing to the unbridled nagging of Mrs. Bonnet.”
