Before Jack Sparrow became a famous movie pirate, I couldn't think of one pirate and now I know of three, the others come compliments of my daughter watching SpongeBob SquarePants, Patchy the Pirate and The Flying Dutchman! Well today (September 19th) is International Talk Like A Pirate Day!

So dust off yer eye patch and get ready to be talkin' in your best pirate all day today and you could end up talking like Black Beard! To help you understand pirate lingo and pirate talk, I found this little instructional video that will get you on the road to understanding how to talk to other pirates so that way you won't feel out of place in the conversation!

Oh, here's Johnny Depp as Capt. Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl for fun!

Now I don't know what donuts and pirates have in common, but if you're up for a hot fresh donut for free, you've gotta make a quick trip to the Dallas metroplex or to Shreveport to a Krispy Kreme donut store because if you talk like a pirate they'll give you a free glazed donut and if you go all out and wear at least three things that make you appear as a pirate, they'll give you a dozen glazed for free!
