September 19 is International Talk Like a Pirate Day!
ITAPD Information from the Source:
International Talk Like A Pirate Day is a parody holiday annually held on September 19. Celebrated for the first time in 1995, the fun holiday encourages people to talk and dress like the sea plunderers of yesteryears.
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.
Happy birthday to Jimmy Fallon, ‘Batman’ Adam West and Alison Sweeny!
