Talk like a pirate day

Published September 19th, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

September 19th is International Talk Like a Pirate Day.

This is important for a number of reasons, but for Pastafarians it provides a convenient source of pirate-behavior data to substantiate the Pirates Vs. Temperature correlation which serves as a keystone of our religion. We expect to see a considerable drop in temperature worldwide on Tuesday the 19th, due to the widespread pirate activity taking place.

I will be collecting quantitative temperature data via the interwebs, but if you have anecdotal (or specious) evidence of unseasonably cold weather, please describe it for us as a comment to this post.

Also, if you’ve done anything amazingly piratey today, please leave a comment about it. We all need to do our part to reverse Global Warming.

You can expect a thorough report of my findings on Wednesday or Thursday.

    Living in Texas the average temperature is about 87 degrees (F). While waking up this morning dressing in my usual pirate atire and deciding which eye I should wear my eye patch on, I noticed an unusal drop in temprature outside. Cheaking my gage to note if any piarte movement is about, to my delight It read 66. Thank you to all Pastafarians who care about the Pirate civilization, and global warming.

    Yesterday it was hot and humid, today it is much colder. Co-incidence – I don’t think so.

True evidence of his power an’ omnicience!
