Invented by a couple of friends, International Talk Like a Pirate Day - 19 September - is sweeping the world.
Here are some pirate sayings from Treasure Island to get you going:
"Bring me one noggin of rum, now, won't you, matey."
"Dead men don't bite."
"Fifteen men on the dead man's chest-- Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!"
"There! That's what I think of ye. Before an hour's out, I'll stove in your old block house like a rum puncheon. Laugh, by thunder, laugh! Before an hour's out, ye'll laugh upon the other side. Them that die'll be the lucky ones."
"Have I lived this many years, and a son of a rum puncheon cock his hat athwart my hawse at the latter end of it?"
Here is your pirate personality test, your pirate name generator, your pirate jokes, and an English to Pirate translator right here. Now begone wi' ye.
