Bark Like a Buccanneer

Ahoy, Matey! This Friday is International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Time to prepare. Brush up on your pirate vocabulary and look for your eye patch.


It looks like Hannah may be able to take advantage of Krispy Kreme Donut’s offer of a dozen free donuts to anyone who dresses like a pirate on September 19th. If you’re not willing to dress for donuts, you can still get one free glazed donut for simply talking like a pirate this Friday.

According to Krispy Kreme’s website, they require customers to don three or more of the following items of “pirate attire” to qualify for a dozen donuts…and no weapons are allowed!

• Eye Patch
• Pirate Hat
• Bandana
• Peg Leg
• Parrot on Shoulder
• Pirate Shirt / Loose white shirt
• Knickers
• Leather Belt
• Silver and gold necklaces and earrings
• Pirate Hook
• Pointy black boots or ragged brown sandals

Blow me down! John, an old salt, A.J., a powder monkey, Zachary, a picaroon, and their bucko pals prepare for Friday. You can too by checking out the Pirate’s Realm.


To get in the mood, here’s a video of the “official” Talk Like a Pirate Day song!
