Summary
Why are pirates called pirates? Because they arrrrr!

The holiday was started by Mark Summers and John Baur in June of 1995.

The idea originated as they were playing racquetball. One of them got injured and yelled “arrrr!” to which another one answered back using a pirate catchphrase.

The two decided that the official Talk Like a Pirate Day would be celebrated on September 19 because it was Summer’s ex-wife’s birthday and the only date he was able to remember.

The holiday gained exposure when Summers and Baur reached out to humor columnist Dave Barry in 2002. Barry enjoyed the idea and promoted it in his work.

Did you know?

According to 'The Pirate Primer: Mastering the Language of Swashbucklers and Rogues' the word Arrgh can have 44 different meanings.
