`Tis international talk like a shipmate tide, an’ here`s how ye can join in th’ fun…or in non pirate, it’s International Talk Like a Pirate Day, and here’s how you can join in the fun!
The official International Talk Like a Pirate Day site is here, and while it’s archaic as a gentleman o’ fortune, it’s a reasonable place t’ start.
12seconds is celebrating the day by opening up the site to anyone wanting to leave a pirate message. It’s a great chance to get in on the closed alpha test. Details here.
Google is offering a pirate search engine here. Get your taste of Webbe, Engravin’s, Crews and Direct’ry, and if in doubt, you can always click the button labeled I be feelin’ lucky.
FriendFeed is in on the act, complete with a pirate logo, and many members joining in the fun with pirate names and pirate themes.
Arrrr, there be local pirate sites as well. A few include Aussie Pirate Day at Yaaarrr.com, the exceedingly dry (at least in the heading) British HQ for the event, and Talk Like a Pirate Day Queensland.
Look also for local parties. In Melbourne, there’s PirateTUB in place of the regular MTUB Twitter event.
