Today is, I think, the twenty-second annual observation of Talk Like a Pirate.

Sneered at by some as a “fake” holiday, this is a celebration of all things cheesy and silly attached to the myths of pirates. (And nothing about the nastiness either of historic pirates or the real ones on today’s high seas. We really are capable of holding two different thoughts in our heads…)

So, shiver me timbers, recall Long John Silver if you’re of an age, or Jack Sparrow, if you must, and talk like a pirate! At least once today…
