What started as a simple tradition among friends, was embedded into Internet lore [2] with an article by humorist Dave Barry [3]. Talk Like A Pirate [4] Day has been going strong [5] for about a decade.

While there are signs the homespun viral [6] trend is abating, it’s still an important holiday to all of us (even though most don’t know it).

Here’s a prior year’s comprehensive post [7].

Like the Fed [8], you never know what a Pirate will do.

Arrgh.
