I was talking with a student after training and he shared that his kids were teaching him Pirate, so for fun I searched online. I found a fun translation applications via Mashable. Stan Schroeder wrote the following on the subject of English to Pirate translation:
And some say that all this Web 2.0 business is a useless waste of time. How else would I even know that it’s the International Talk Like a Pirate Day if it weren’t for Facebook, who added a new translation (English (Pirate)) to their Translations application, or FriendFeed, which has turned into an eye-patched FrrrriendFeed for the time being?
Talk Like A Pirate Day was founded in 1995, September 19 -by two guys from Oregon. It hit mainstream acceptance two years ago thanks to syndicated humor columnist, Dave Barry. He wrote an article about the concept, it was read by millions of people, and now people are adding a few pirate-y words to their daily conversations to add some much needed zest. Think of it as Sweetest Day, without the Hallmark card requirement. Just say “Arrr, ye ” but I think Pirate Day could be anyday
I plan on having a family activity and have a Pirate Day this Monday! This would be a break from all this stressful news that has been bombarding us lately “America’s out of control, drowning in debt” (for at least one day.) For more positive and good stories visit Good News Network
