If there is one thing that is hot right now, it is pirates. Not the stealing, murdering, vile ones that are the true pirate, but the fun, talk kind of funny but still look good one in the movies ones. And no parent would turn down the chance to raise their kid to be the greatest pirate ever. Provided they don’t break any laws and pretty much just walk around in costume and talk like a pirate.
For the talking part, please remember that Sept 19th every year is the official Talk Like a Pirate Day all over the world. Rejoice in the complexities of the pirate language which has such sayings as “scruvy bilge rat”, “grog” and “land lubber.” Grog being another word for milk or juice of course.
