National Talk Like A Pirate Day et al

A quote: All you bilge rats, Aaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrgh! As you are out and about on September 19th, don’t be surprised if people are saying, “Ahoy Matie,” “Avast,” “Aye, Aye Capt’n,” “Land ho!” “Hornpipe,” and many other pirate-like phrases, because it’s International Talk Like a Pirate Day. 

While ordering your coffee in the drive-thru, ask if they have change for gold bullion. Try testing your pirate language out at the library when asking for the location of Moby Dick. The pirate language always fairs well in rough seas. Settle a debate with “I’m right or I’ll walk the plank!”

When the boss gives you a new project, “Aye, aye, Capt’n,” is the correct response. However, beware calling the boss any frothy names. The goal of the day is not to lose your job. See below".

NATIONAL HUG YOUR BOSS DAY

All I'll say here is...or not.

NATIONAL BUTTERSCOTCH PUDDING DAY

I've always enjoyed butterscotch flavor, even above chocolate, although it's a close race.

NATIONAL PAW PAW DAY

Can't say as I've ever eaten a paw paw - but they are allegedly quite good. Not sure where they grow, but somewhere tropical would be a good bet. There are 60 varieties of paw paw - the most popular a mango-banana flavored one. It was supposedly George Washington's favorite dessert. Anyone ever try paw paw?
