Talk Like a Pirate Day

September 19 is Talk Like a Pirate Day.

Today  is Talk Like a Pirate Day!
      Here's some piratical vocabulary:  Pirate Talk
By the way, my favorite pirate book is   Pirates! by Celia Rees which is an historical fiction book about women pirates (women who become pirates) in the Caribbean.   It's a long book, but very exciting, and is recommended for students in 6th through 9th grade.

Do you get it?  Think about it!
This is so fun.  Three of my grandchildren and their parents
went to a pirate party today -- September 19, 2015  -- in Utah.

And 2016 -- in El Paso, Texas --
four dozen doughnuts for dressing and talking like pirates.

Ahoy! Arrrrrr! What does Shakespeare's text sound like on Talk Like a Pirate Day? Here are few lines from Julius Caesar to give you an idea:
Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me yer ears.
I come t' bury Caesar, nah t' praise 'im.
Th' evil that scallywags do lives aft them;
Th' good be oft interre’d wit' thar bones.
