Sunday Funnies – Talk Like a Pirate Day

Tomorrow, September 19th, is International Talk Like A Pirate Day again.  Here is party information from the official website.

Because this is the 20th anniversary of the event coming to the world’s attention, we’re planning a party

And you’re invited.

We hope our pirate friends and family will join us from 6 to 9 p.m. at Kells Brewery, 210 NW 21st Ave, Portland, OR, for music, shenanigans and sea stories as we raise a tankard or two in honor of our favorite holiday, the day when every man, woman and child on the planet is invited to talk like a pirate for the sheer, anarchic fun of it.

September is chock-full of Geek Holidays.  Here’s the list.
