Dumb-Ass Lists: EDGE's Favaarrrite #TalkLikeAPirateDay Tweets

Tuesday Sep 19, 2017

Yarrrr! It's #TalkLikeAPirateDay, and EDGE has compiled a list of its favarrrite Tweets.

Every year, since 1995, September 19 has been recognized as Talk Like a Pirate Day. According to the event's official website On this day, friends are encouraged to greet each other with an "Ahoy!" instead of "Hello." Frequent usage of the onomatopoeia "yaarrrr" is encouraged.

Wikipedia notes that according to event co-creator Mark Summers (aka Cap'n Slappy) of the land-locked city of Albany, Oregon, the holiday came to be as a result of a sports injury. During a racquetball game between Summers and event co-founder John Baur (aka Ol' Chumbucket), one of them reacted to the pain with an outburst of "Yaaarrr!", and the idea was born.
