29 Pirate-Inspired Innovations

Arr, It be Celebrating Talk Like a Pirate Day, Matey

— September 19, 2009 — Pop Culture
September 19th is Talk Like a Pirate Day! Celebrate with an eye patch and a parrot and a hefty use of “Arrrrr’s.” What is it with pirates that make them so irresistible? Johnny Depp obviously helped the pirate cause, and news of a fourth film is keeping pirates in the headlines.

Show some “pirattitude” and stretch your pirate language skills on the only day that you can excuse the behavior (or at least try to). Talk Like a Pirate Day is an international holiday, which is only appropriate considering the history and breadth of the pirate lifestyle. How do you say “Arrr!” in Italian?
