Talk Like A Pirate Day 2018

Tomorrow is International Talk Like A Pirate Day.  In the pantheon of Geek Holidays, Talk Like A Pirate Day is one of my favorites.  I mean, how often do you get a reason wear a tricorn hat, carry a saber, perch a parrot on your shoulder and walk around saying “Aaaarrrh” and “Yaaarrrh, matey.”
