International Talk Like a Pirate Day is on Monday, September 19. No, you don’t get the day off of work. However, office shenanigans will be a lot more fun and/or annoying.  Argh you with me?

The thing is, talking like a pirate is all well and awesome, but real standout buccaneers should take it a wee bit farther. Here’s how:

Pirate Hat


We’ll start with the classic pirate hat. It’s a must-have. Whether you use the menu at Long John Silver’s (or Disneyland as seen below) or purchase the hat pictured (left) for just $2.99 at Birthday in a Box, you’ll look good. Or at the very least, you’ll look the part. (Plus, save some Doubloons with Birthday in a Box coupons.)




Pirates at DisneylandScary, right?

Choosing the right weapon depends, for the most part, upon the security and regulations in your workplace. For instance, the pistol might require some sort of permit, but the sword? Nobody questions the sword!

Pirate gun

This firearm is available for all of your plundering needs at Birthday Express for $3.99.

pirate sword

The pen may be mightier, but the sword looks cooler. Get it at for only $2.99.

And of course, one cannot go around pillaging and plundering the office all day without something to show for it. Treasure is like gold to pirates. Choose your pirate booty wisely:

Pirate purse

This pirate purse is available at Kohl’s for $24.98.

Pirate Booty

This Pirate Booty is the real deal and you can get LOTS of it at Amazon for $53.82. Seriously, lots of it.

Like you didn’t see this coming. Available for $49.99 at Newegg.

Pirate Booty

Just to be fair, the Pirate Booty Babe Costume at Newegg for $27.95.

And that, my friends, is how you take International Talk Like a Pirate Day to the next level.

You’re welcome.
