International Talk Like A Pirate Day is on September 19 of every
year. It was first established by a couple of rogues named John Baur and Mark Summers in 1995 and brought to life and national
attention by Pulitzer Prize Winning Columnist and seadog Dave Barry in 2002.
Back in the day, swashbucklers would, yes, wear buckles
to hold their pants up, but they also wore fancy pirate hats as well.Besides a hat, no pirate costume is complete without
puffy shoulders, big black boots, an eye patch and a sword. Throw in the parrot and your pirate costume will sing like a little
schoolgirl at recess.
A treasure chest is where any self-respecting pirate places
his booty. Without a treasure chest, a pirate is just another poor sailor tossed about on the sea, scrubbing his own poop
deck. The pirate's treasure chest is typically filled with gold and silver bullion and bars, pillaged and plundered from other
ships upon the high seas. Pieces of eight, coins, jewelry, goblets and other various valuables usually overflow the treasure
chest. Pirate captains used to keep their treasure chests in their captain's quarter, under lock and key. Now,
sometimes ships would become shipwrecked or under fire from another vessel and the captain would need to escape in a smaller,
swifter craft with his treasure chest and a few trusted pirate crewmembers. In case like these the pirate's treasure chest
may have to have been buried in a small nearby island.
Pirate ships were some of the most feared vessels in the high
Batten down the hatches - put everything away on the ship and tie
everything down because a storm is brewing. If ye thinks he be ready to sail a beauty, ye better be willin' to
sink with her.
The existence of the sea means the existence of Pirates. Dead
men don't tell tales, See you in Davie Jones' Locker.
Pirate ships were built for speed, for hauling booty and for
fighting. The words "Hand over the booty" were often heard aboard the pirate ships from the crewmen talking to the
ladies who were standing on shore. Real pirates knew their vessels inside and out while fakers didn't know their ship from
Shinola. The typical pirate ships that graced the water and threw fear into all who sailed the high seas (Hi-C's) looking
for a Hawaiian Punch. From their flying jibs to the mainmasts to the bulwarks and bulkheads, the pirate ship was the most
feared and revered sailing craft to ever break a sailor's rum-filled haze.
If ye be a pirate on a long journey across the Atlantic or in the
Caribbean ye might likes to know what ye be eatin' at any moments notice. That is why I be here laddies and lassies
to tell ye that at first a pirate's grub be fresh and plentiful, but as ye journey ventures on longer this pirate food turns
scarce and what is left be rotten to the core. Pirate food, in fact, may not look like anything ye have been eatin'
before. The journey may start out all joyous with barrels of salted meat, a cow down below, chickens for eggs,
fresh vegetables, biskits, beans, milk and a variety of pickled foods not to mention the rum.
Ye can swab the poop deck, but ye can't poop on the swab deck.
When you have a pirate party its all about fun. You'll walk like
pirates, talk like pirates and dress like pirates. The invitation you sent out will have a pirate theme and your
decorations should be at least nautical with a couple of Jolly Roger flags thrown in for good measure. In your
pirate party, you can even play pirate games such as "Hoop Ball" or "The deadly Ring Toss".
For food be sure to serve a lot of squid and octopus, salted fish and crackers. Dry biscuits were a favorite of
the real pirates back in the day, so they should be present of any pirate party menu. Ask yer guest to come dressed
as wenches and pirates when you send out the invitation since nobody wants to show up in a clown suit to a pirate party.
That would just be plain tacky. The main thing to remember, as the host of the party, you'll get to Kiss everyone, (even the
scurvy dogs) as the pirates of old used to do.

Hosting a pirate party is more fun that a barrel of sea monkeys.
In fact, there's nothing like a pirate party to get yer jibs jibbing, yer jabs jabbing and yer nibs nibbling. "Go to
starboard and host the mainsail," you'll exhort, as a pretend pirate who doesn't know what they're talking about. But,
that's Okay. This is exactly what a pirate party is all about. Pirate songs are a way to express the
music, melody and events of a pirate's life in days gone past. Back in the day, pirates actually captured musicians
and force them to play music aboard the ships.
Arrrr, matey, so you came here looking for a pirate treasure map
did ye? Well, you came to the right place. A pirate treasure map is a valuable asset for any self-respecting swashbuckler
to have. A treasure chest is where any self-respecting pirate places his booty. Without a treasure
chest, a pirate is just another poor sailor tossed about on the sea, scrubbing his own poop deck. The pirate's
treasure chest is typically filled with gold and silver bullion and bars, pillaged and plundered from other ships upon the
high seas. Pieces of eight, coins, jewelry, goblets and other various valuables usually overflow the treasure chest.
Pirate captains used to keep their treasure chests in their captain's quarter, under lock and key.
Well, I be watching ye with me good eye, ready to give ye a
left hook at the drop of a swallow's tail. Arrrgh! Arrrgh! Arrrgh! Arrrgh! Arrrrgh!
