Ahoy! me scallywags, wenches, rascals and beauties! Ye'll be wantin' ter know that today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. 'Tis hard to believe that it's been only five years since the pirate guys, John Baur and Mark Summers (who had come up with the idea in 1995), emailed Dave Barry and asked him to be TLAPD spokesman. Barry wrote a column and — shiver our timbers — the wacky idea took flight. Now, ye salts and landlubbers, greet yer mates with a swagger and a sneer. But, no pillagin' and plunderin' allowed! Arrrr!!
