I am such a sucker (or do I say wench?) for Talk Like a Pirate Day.
It's a real thing celebrated by salty dogs on seas far and wide.
Yes, it's a silly day and yes it borders on absurd - but I think it's great.
Considering the dire straits of our financial markets and the upheaval of the presidential election TLAPD is just the levity we need, me hearties!
Avast, ye bilge rats and beauties! Hold close to the barnacles and hunker down - we're in for a wild ride. Just know, there's a frosty mug of grog waitin' for ye at the end of this jolly day.
