International Talk Like a Pirate Day is a chance to use insults like "lily-livered" and "scallywag" — and to put some grog in your coffee cup. And say "Arr," if you must.
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
Steve, are you up for dropping all your G's and V's today? As in they're speaking anything but pirate-ese.
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Arr, talk the right way and end up in Davy Jones' Locker.
MONTAGNE: Yeah, talk in that way because it's International Talk Like a Pirate Day, a chance to use lily-livered, scallywag, and over thar me beauty, like a true gentleman of fortune. Oh, and to put some grog in that coffee cup of yours.
It's MORNING EDITION.
