Yarrrr! It's Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Arrrgh!
Pull out your eyepatch, dust off your tri-corner hat, & practice that swagger. It's Talk Like A Pirate Day!
Need to brush up on your lingo? Forgot the difference between Arrrrgh & Yarrrr? Never fear! Try a Pirate Dictionary.
Here are a few samples to get you started:
Ahoy! - "Hello!"
Avast! - derived from "hold fast". Stop and give attention.
Aye! - "Yes!"
Aye aye! - "I understand what you said and I will carry out your order!"
Having trouble getting into character? How about turning your name into a Pirate Name with a Pirate Name Generator? I'm Lady Felula the Forgetful. Hmmm...can I try that again?
Why, you may ask, should we bother with Talk Like A Pirate Day? Silly question! Why not?
Now, straighten that hat, wake up your parrot & have fun!
