Tomorrow, Sept. 19, is International Talk Like A Pirate Day. This is an annual day when one unleashes her inner pirate and lives without a care in the world.
Dress up in your favorite pirate garb, listen to pirate songs, and if you need any help, the folks behind TLAP Day are there for lots of advice on their web site.
Basically, being a pirate is whatever you want it to be. But be a good pirate.
To commemorate TLAP Day last year, Central Arkansas Pastafarians held a demonstration in Little Rock right across the street from a protest being held by the people of the Westboro Baptist Church (known as the funeral-picketing “God Hates Fags” people).
Because folks were paying more attention to the pirates than the Westboro people, the Westboro members LEFT IN DEFEAT. HA!
I bet the Westboro folks will think twice before they decide to mess with Talk Like A Pirate Day again.
