Pirattitude: So You Wanna Be a Pirate? Here’s How! – John “Ol’ Chumbucket” Baur & Mark “Cap’n Slappy” Summers

Actually, it doesn’t tell you how to be a pirate, just how to act like a movie stereotype of one; it’s all in the attitude. The two authors, responsible for the invention of “International Talk Like a Pirate Day” (September 19, make a note) throw together some hilarious stories, a few pirate facts and a whole lot of fun in their quest to help you act like a fool—I mean pirate. I’ve been all over this idea since I dressed up as “Overcoming Adversity Pirate” last Halloween sporting two hooked hands, three (three?) eye patches and a dead parrot.
