Many years ago, two most glorious men by t'names of Ol' Chum Bucket (John Baur) and Cap'n Slappy (Mark Summers) came up with a brilliant idea. They decided, thar and then, that fer one day of the year people all over the world should be talkin' like pirates.

A land lubber and humorist by the name of Dave Barry a-heared of the idea, and soon he were a-writin' about it in his column. The Day became famous, and suddenly - shiver me timbers! - it were known all over the world!

Another fine pirate, Cap'n Thomas Scott, in England, a-heared about this fine day and began a website - the Official British HQ fer Talk Like A Pirate Day.

This year, an Aussie Pirate called Cap'n Rummy happened on t'Pommy site and were shocked ter learn that there was no Aussie site for Aussie Pirates!! Deeply ashamed of her country, she was.
Arrrrrr! And so this site was born...
