Hey, who doesn't want to have a little fun pretending they're a kid again? But first you need to learn how to talk like a pirate.
Whether you just want to post a silly status on social media or you've got a secret swashbuckling fantasy, here's what you have to do to indulge your inner Johnny Depp on September 19:
You should be endin' your sentences, not ending your sentences.
Rather than "you," say "ye," and replace "your" with "yer." When referring to yourself, "me" should go in place of "my" or "I."
Say "aye!" And if you want to be extra effusive in your agreement, an "aye aye" is just right. "Arr" is another way of expressing your affirmative.
Let's face it, pirates (at least the kind copied on Talk Like a Pirate Day) were unsavory characters who were rather fond of their liquor. The more you slur, the better you sound. And if you're actually drinking, ye best refer to your beer as grog, and call for your friends to "drink up, me hearties!"
In every word, not just "arr."
As in, this be hard!
"I like the cut of your jib" be a good one to describe someone you admire.
