John Baur (“Ol’ Chumbucket”) and Mark Summers (“Cap’n Slappy”) are created this holiday on June 6, 1995. Out of respect World War II’s D-Day, Baur and Summers choose to move the date of the holiday to September 19.

International Talk Like A Pirate Day was a low-key event until 2002 when it received media attention via syndicated humor columnistDave Barry. Today, it is celebrated around the world as a way to raise funds for charity organizations, such as Childhood Cancer Support and Marie Curie Cancer Care.
