Deep down I think everyone has a soft spot for Jack Sparrow and those cool pirates of yesteryear. I lot of us dreamed of being pirates and still do. The big question is, how do you do it? Well, the Prattitude!: So You Wanna Be A Pirate? Here’s How! book is ready to get you on your way. I don’t recommend you go about pillaging and ransacking ships on the high-seas, especially since the United Nations and most countries would then be gunning for you, but you still can indulge yourself in the knowledge and would be pirate skills. With today being International Talk Like a Pirate Day, and the authors of this book the actual founders of the holiday, I think this book would make a fitting start to all things pirates. Enjoy September 19th in a pirate fashion that John “Ol’ Chumbucket” Baur and Mark “Cap’n Slappy” Summers would be proud of.
Pirattitude!: So You Wanna Be a Pirate? Here’s How!
Set sail for high-seas hijinks and nautical nonsense with those paragons of Pirattitude who invented the famous International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Whether readers are old hands at pirating or hopeless landlubbers, the Pirate Guys will have them pirate-savvy in no time with sure-fire pirate pickup lines for any occasion, tips on how to make their pirate party a buccaneer ball that even Martha Stewart would be proud of, and help determining their true pirate monicker.
John “Ol’ Chumbucket” Baur and Mark “Cap’n Slappy” Summers came up with the idea for Talk Like a Pirate Day during an ill-fated game of racquetball way back in 1995, making it the first holiday that ever originated as a sports injury. They adamantly deny that there was any grog-swilling involved, though they both admit to swilling more than their fair share of grog at other times.
