Avast ye scurvy wenches and prepare to be boarded! Or something like that. It's Talk Like a Pirate Day--you know, the holiday that took the place of Arbor Day on our corporate calendar--and an excuse for all kinds of otherwise normal-appearing people to speak like Johnny Depp speaking like Keith Richards.
It's no Martin Luther King Day. Pirate day
was started in 1995 by two folks from Oregon who thought it sounded clever, then hyped by Dave Barry in a 2002 book.
So while you're practicing some pirate pickup lines and trying on eyepatches at Target, tell us -- which car from the past 25 years made you go "aarrggh!" The comment section awaits you, mateys.
