"Every now and then, some visionary individuals come along with a concept that is so original and so revolutionary that your immediate reaction is: 'Those individuals should be on medication.'
Today I want to tell you about two such people, John Baur and Mark Summers, who have come up with a concept that is going to make you kick yourself for not thinking of it first: Talk Like a Pirate Day. As the name suggests, this is a day on which everybody would talk like a pirate. Is that a great idea, or what? There are so many practical benefits that I can't even begin to list them all." -- Dave Barry, Miami Herald, Sept. 8, 2002.
"The Pirate Guys have pens as mighty as their cutlasses. "Pirattitude," their hysterical piratic how-to, reads like a brig bounding over the Spanish Main under full sail. And after finishing it, you'll know enough to capture a brig and bound it over the Spanish Main. Huzzahs to Ol' Chumbucket and Cap'n Slappy, and may they live to write again!"
--Keith Thomson, author of the novel "Pirates of Pensacola"
"All the color missing from the Lafittes can be found in "Pirattitude!," a helpful guide for those who wish to adopt the pirate lifestyle. ... Slappy and Chumbucket may be on to something here, another clue to the perennial appeal of the pirate. Unlike the tight-lipped tough guys and monosyllabic cowboys who let their guns do the talking, pirates, once they get past arrr, exploit the resources of the English language. Even their parrots have colorful vocabularies."
