Today Is Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Fads have a natural half-life, and die pretty quickly. One-day-a-year fads try to avoid that by not wearing out their welcome all at once, but, still, every year, it becomes slightly less interesting and more stilted, until, finally, we give up on it.

Are we there yet with Talk Like a Pirate Day? (Or am I just a grump?)

Aaaargh, for those so inclined.

Oh GOD, thank you for that.

Pirates are starting to (starting to? that would be stretching it considerably, they HAVE been for a while...) grate on me really solidly now. There is a limited amount of what's interesting about them, at least *I* have a limited amount of interest, and people going around squinting at an imaginary parrot on their shoulder and growling "Arrrgh!" all day strikes me as... you know...

Well, you said it better and more succinctly than me....
