Once again, Talk Like a Pirate Day is almost here. Yes, this Friday, September 19 is Talk Like A Pirate Day, and all good citizens of the Interwebs are expected to participate!
To make it easy for all of my WordPress friends, I created the Text Filter Suite plugin, which will automagically piratify your web site for TLaPD. Just go to ‘Add New Plugin’ in your Dashboard, and search for ‘talk like a pirate’.
And once again, to demonstrate, any comments added to this post will automatically be converted into pirate speak! Arrr!
