It's Talk Like a Pirate Day!
Yarrrr Matey! It's that most excellent day again! It's Talk Like a Pirate Day! Every year on September 19 you get to bust out yer pirate talk or walk the plank to Davey Jones Lock!
Not sure what pirrrrrate talk is? Check out our Mango Languages Database and learn a "new language"!
(seriously, it's right there along with Spanish, French, German and 60 other languages!)

Here are a few key phrases to keep you "in the know" before you get a chance to check out Mango Languages:
- Ahoy! - "Hello!"
- Avast! - Stop and give attention. It can be used in a sense of surprise, "Whoa! Get a load of that!" which today makes it more of a "Check it out" or "No way!" or "Get out!"
- Aye! - "Why yes, I agree most heartily with everything you just said or did."
- Aye aye! - "I'll get right on that sir, as soon as my break is over."
- Arrr! - This one is often confused with arrrgh, which is of course the sound you make when you sit on a belaying pin. "Arrr!" can mean, variously, "yes," "I agree," "I'm happy," "I'm enjoying this can of pop," "My team is going to win it all," "I saw that television show, it was the worst!" and "That was a clever remark you or I just made." And those are just a few of the myriad possibilities of Arrr!
