Pray like a pirate day?

From The Scotsman:
Pirate enthusiast and Church of Scotland minister the Rev Dr Robin Hill is using International Talk Like A Pirate Day - an unofficial holiday set up 11 years ago in the United States - as the basis for a weekend-long rededication event for his parish in Longniddry.

And he is hoping the current interest in pirates, which has been fuelled by the recent blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean movie, will encourage his parishioners to don eyepatches and fake parrots for the event next weekend.
An English-to-pirate translator is available online at www.talklikeapirate.com.
