Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day mateys!
You really don't hear the phrase "shiver me timbers" anymore - not even on Talk Like a Pirate Day. The phrase probably gained its original popularity via the character Long John Silver in Treasure Island. I understand the phrase "well blow me down" is still popular in certain circles - not that there's anything wrong with that.
Many people have heard of Talk Like a Pirate Day but did you know that April 23rd is Talk Like Shakespeare Day?
