Yeah, when even *I* think pirates are played out, you know something is wrong.
Ninja fan, eh?
At least there’s less biting than on Talk Like A Zombie Day.
But it guarantees that every year you’ll be able to make a “I Hate Talk Like a Pirate Day” post. Easy content!
Next year – talk like a new god day.
I still like it, but I call it “Talk like a Seagoing Cliche Irishman day”.
The best thing about today is finding out who among your friends is a twat. As soon as they bust out a “yarr” you can mentally file them into that group of people you know who are just intolerable, the sort other friends refer to as a “character.”
I could not agree more. Why the fetishization of incomprehensibility?!
Cookie, when is “Talk Like A Kitten Day”?
Typical Godless commmie, undermining all the social traditions that give our lives meaning. God talks like a pirate all through my King James Bible!
Ooh, you are so going to get smited.
But I already talk like a pirate…
A digital pirate.
Digital pirates should speak in high-seas l33t:
Y4rrrr, /\/\3 /\/\4+3y2!
As a resident of the Tampa, FL metro area, I’m a tad concerned about the anti-pirate hostility that’s been floating out there since the Somali pirate sniping incident…
Not to mention the Swedish Pirate Party needs all the love they can get…
I wish all those people would pretend it was Talk Like a Ninja Day and shut the hell up!
I’m amused that so many people think the only problem with Talk Like a Pirate Day is the pirate part.
Talk like a pirate day needs to be replaced with Talk Like Horatio Cane Day
Just think of the boost to the economy due to the sale of sunglasses and the buying of Who albums.
This saddens me.
Aww, you adorable little killjoy.
I’ll say it again: replace it with Talk Like Hulk Day.
None of you haters have kids, I can just tell.
Frankly, a stupid meme started by a bunch of Americans with no lives is no different, substantively, from a stupid meme started by a bunch of Israelis with no wives — so why not complain about Christmas too?
Naaah, I’d agree with you if it wasn’t so much fun seeing my munchkins dressed in pirate gear and playing with swords. If you don’t like TLAPD, clearly it’s not for you. Move on.
We’re forgetting the really important thing here:
Adam West is 79 today!
I think “hater” is a little too strong. “Mild disliker”. Don’t mildly dislike the playa, mildly dislike the game!
And yeah. It started as a joke. The thing about jokes is they get less funny every time you hear them. The people who are still participating in Talk Like a Pirate Day are the same people who still wear their “All Your Base Are Belong To Us” t-shirts.
I still prefer “Talk Like I Still Go To Temple Day.”
Talk like a Pirate Day: kinda stupid
Talking like a Pirate for a Day (as long as it’s not 9-19, I guess) because you feel like it and you’d like to see any yellow bellied bastard just try and stop you cuz it’s your God given right to talk anyway you damn well please thank you very much: HELL YES
It’s always Talk Like A Pirate Day in Cornwall. They invented it.
I didn’t even know it was Talk Like A Pirate Day. Does anyone even celebrate it? I’ve never heard any person talk like a pirate on Talk Like A Pirate Day. Ever. I didn’t even know there was such a day until last year when I heard Craig Ferguson mention it on TV. And aside from that mention, I’ve never heard of it at all. Where do you find these people who go around talking like pirates on this day?
At my little brother’s elementary school. They *love* it.
Yeah, I don’t care. I don’t really get into it – mostly because I’m really bad at it – but I can see why it’s a lot of fun for people who like to do it. It takes what would otherwise be another goddamn *day* and turns it into something special, and of course little kids love it.
So what’s the problem?

That’s so stupid that I can’t even decide what names to call you.
It beats the talky holiday I celebrate, Talk Like An Underappreciated Underpaid Low Level Office Support Supervisor, which mostly involves choking back ill-concealed rage and randomly shouting “I did not steal any interestingly colored Post-It Notes!”.
Curmudgeon season seems to have started early this year.
