For those of you who aren’t aware, September 19th is ‘Talk Like A Pirate’ day and this year is the 10th anniversary of the oddball event where people are encouraged to talk using pirate-isms like “ahoy mate” and “ohhh arrrrrrgh me hearties.’ Not limited to just speech, on international ‘Talk Like A Pirate Day’ it is also encouraged that you dress up like those morally-challenged sea-faring folk.
This year, Krispy Kreme has joined in the celebrations and is promising to give away free doughnuts to anyone who talks like a pirate or wears an eye-patch. It gets even better for all you doughnut-lovers out there, all you need to do to get yourself a whole dozen free glazed sweet-treats is dress up in full pirate fancy dress – we are guessing this means, eye-patch, hoop earrings, dodgy bandana, a parrot for your shoulder and an unwashed, unkempt hairstyle.
But be warned, any pirates carrying actually weapons will not be allowed in the Krispy Kreme store, they have been very clear on this – be peaceful with free doughnuts peeps.
We are not sure what the store policy is for plastic kiddy toy swords and suchlike, but we’re guessing its better safe than sorry, so leave your replicas at the door to be sure!
I really really want a talking parrot that hurls insults at passersby whilst sat atop my shoulder just because I like cusswords and talking creatures!
