Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day

International Talk Like a Pirate Day

Ahoy Mateys! Barnacle Bill here. This be International Talk Like a Pirate Day (Why just today? I talks like this all the time!) I’m here to give you some tips to see you through this auspicious day.

You should greet friends with ‘Ahoy matey’ instead of ‘Hello’; use ‘Aarrr!’ to reply in the affirmative instead of ‘Yes!’; and say ‘Shiver me timbers’ to express surprise or shock (like when one of your crew has helped hisself to your secret stash of fish fingers*). You could even employ a parrot to sit on your shoulder for the day, or see off your enemies by making them walk the plank. You get the idea…

What have these sea-faring buccaneers to do with libraries? Well, they have lots of books featuring my fellow pirates on the high seas! So get down to your local library and grab some booty before that evil pirate Redbeard plunders the shelves afore ye!
