Wednesday, September 19th is Talk Like a Pirate Day. My guess is that a large percentage of Pastafarians will observe this holiday. For more information, I strongly suggest that you check out the website talklikeapirateday.com.
Wellington Grey has published a seminal report discussing a topic of much importance to recent memes: Pirates Vs. Ninjas.
Grey looks not only at weapons and fighting characteristics, but at environmental concerns and challenges faced by each groups.
