Ahoy, mateys! Do you know what today is?
It’s TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY—one of my favourite days of the year!
What started out as a goofy idea by the author Dave Barry has turned into an international phenomenon, with millions of people around the world taking part. There’s even a website and everything! (www.talklikeapirate.com)
Last year, I spent TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY annoying my parents by constantly speaking “pirate” while wearing an eye patch. Ha! This year, I’m going to watch pirate movies (Pirates of the Caribbean, anyone?) and read pirate books—probably while wearing an eye patch. Argh!
Not enough pirate books, you say? Aye, I hear you, mateys. But guess what? There is a new Superman Duffy comic coming out next month. It’s called SHIVER ME TIMBERS and it features ME as…yes, that’s right! A PIRATE. I can hardly wait for you to read this one.
Aye, I gotta jet! Have a great weekend. Argh!
