I discover that 19th of September is the international "talk like a pirate day"...
Is it a tradition in UK, never saw it before...
By the photos i guess it is a funny day :D

Do you celebrate it? Do you dress as a pirate?

Heard of this a couple years back. Sometimes it's nmentioned on the radio and done briefly as a bit of a joke. It's never really been something that catches on for more than a few minutes of the day.

Maybe we should hold a pirate thread on the day, and try to post as many Pirate related quotes as we can.

Or even better, we should all dress up as pirates and post our pictures! :lol:

The accent definitely appears in my head when reading anything pirate related!

And for some reason lately I also remember the pirate memory game sketch from Little Britain.
