Cannons Marina offers treasure fer talkin' like a pirate

by: Robin Hartill Managing Editor

Do ye be knowin' what Wednesday be?

Why, 'tis International Speak Like a Scurvy Pirate Day.

That translation came from in honor of International Talk Like a Pirate Day Wednesday, Sept. 19. At Cannons Marina, 6040 Gulf of Mexico Drive, the occasion will translate to free Cannons Marina hats for the first 20 customers who show up between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.

Some tips for scoring free pirate booty:

Instead of “hello” try an “ahoy.” Turn your “for” into a “fer” and always answer a question with an “Aye!” or an “Arrg!”

Pirate translation, according to a Cannons' Marina prepared statement:

“The rules be simple, matey. Come by land or by sea, and speak like yer a pirate to receive some booty! Arrg!”
