Arrrr! It's International Talk Like A Pirate Day!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Talk_Like_a_Pirate_Day

Talk Like A Pirate Day is also a High Holy Day for Pastafarians --- members of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

"Pirates are revered as the original Pastafarians, and Pastafarians facetiously assert that a steady decline in the number of pirates over the years has resulted in a significant rise in global temperature. Pastafarians celebrate every Friday as a holy day. Other Pastafarian holidays include Ramendan, Pastover, International Talk Like a Pirate Day, and a vaguely defined holiday near Christmas named "Holiday". "
