Do your kids and grandkids think you aren't hip? Change their minds by talking like a pirate.
Believe it or not September 19th is International Talk like a Pirate Day.

But it became big news when Pulitzer Prize-winning humor columnist Dave Barry wrote about the day.
Their silly but fun web site gives the whole story along with other details of the day.
