Activists want do get rid of Columbus Day because of political incorrectness. How about replacing it with the fast-growing sensation of International Talk Like a Pirate Day? Because pirates never hurt anyone, right? Or at least are more popular that Christopher Columbus.
The Greater Cleveland Aquarium is marking Talk Like a Pirate Day with a Tuesday special; merely recite a chosen phrase in a pirate accent (hint: see UK actor Robert Newton’s portrayal of Long John Silver; he virtually invented pirate talk) and get $5 off admission.
Early birds/parrots will also get free eyepatches. The day includes treasure hunts, pirate crafts and appearances by Aquarium characters Captain NEO and Fin.
Although the final Talk Like a Pirate admission is taken at 4pm, know me hearties that the facility remains open until 5pm.
