Aaaaarrrrgh me hearties.. don't miss the opportunity to ham it up and talk like a pirate all day today!!
For more on this crazy and whimsical day that is sweeping the planet.. known as far afield as the New Zealand town of Wainuiomata check out this site.
There's even a song about the day.. you can sing along here!
So me hearties.. aargh.... have a grand day.. may the sails on your ship fill with favourable winds and sweep you along on the crest of the wave..may the booty of times past fall into yer lap - pieces of eight and other plunder. May the rum flow freely and the ship's biscuit be not too 'ard.
and don't forget yer parrot!
