"Brush me barnacles, it's our favorite time of the year again. International Talk Like a Pirate Day is upon us, providing an excellent opportunity for all of us to get excited about language and broaden our cultural horizons by learning Pirate," said Jason Teshuba, linguapreneur and CEO of Mango Languages. "Mango developed Pirate because we're all about having fun with a purpose, and our customers agree! Out of all our foreign and ESL courses, Pirate has become one of our most popular."

In addition, Krispy Kreme will celebrate the holiday by giving a free glazed donut to anybody who talks like a pirate. If you dress like a pirate you'll get a dozen free donuts.
