One of the most popular posts I wrote last year, at least in terms of Google searches that led to this site, was this one about National Talk Like A Pirate Day. Well, thanks to an email I received last night from NTLAPD co-founder John “Ol’ Chumbucket” Baur, I can tell you that all of your pirate talking needs can be satisfied here. Be sure to read the brief history of NTLAPD, which contains the following amazing bit of information:
Chase’s Calendar of Events, the annual listing every holiday under the sun (and many under the moon, for you Wiccans out there) asked us to submit the event for inclusion in their 2004 listing (2003 has already gone to press.) So that makes it official, as far as we’re concerned.
Pretty darned cool. They couldn’t have done it without the help of Dave Barry, whose influential column on the subject can be found here.
So mark your calendars, for September 19 is less than four months away. Arr!
