    I want to invent a "Talk Like a Mime Day," and it should be an American holiday.

    *snicker*

    There already is one, but you'll never see or hear it coming. For the ninja is the expert in the art of surprise...

    I think it would help to have an Australian or British accent ... something I don't have.

    Check eBay for some good prices. Just be careful not to get ripped off. Those crazy Brits can't be trusted.

    "Duuuude. Like 'Yaaaargh', dude."


    You definitely need a British accent of some sort to really be a pirate. I can't imagine a pirate with a clear American accent. Even South African accents would be better for the task.

    Your stereotypical pirate would have a Bristol or Cornish accent, for some reason I've never fully understood...

    The guys that started this day were on "Wife Swap" last night... *shudder*

    Also I believe it is International Talk Like A Pirate Day. You think pirates have a nation?!

    Indeed – that's the strange thing about them. :D

    It must be something they learn at Pirate School.

    Do you reckon pirates have an International Talk Like A MacRumors Member Day? I wonder if it'd be international or just national...
