Attention City of Lake Worth. Start practicing how to, “Talk Like A Pirate”! Two instructional videos below.

The “International Talk Like A Pirate Day Proclamation” in the City of Lake Worth is only 4½ fortnights away!

Just don’t expect everyone to be in the mood when you say, “Arrrrrr, Ye Bilge Rat!”

The excerpt below is from a hilariously funny and quite clever news article by former Post reporter Willie Howard in September 2012 titled, “ ‘Talk like a pirate day’ in Lake Worth has some up in arms”:

[R]esident Lynda Mahoney said the pirate day proclamation sounded “juvenile, nonsensical — a day that might occur in a kindergarten class.”
     She said the city should not waste time on such foolishness because it has serious problems. [City Manager Michael] Bornstein responded in part with a quote from Mahatma Gandhi: “If I had no sense of humor, I would long ago have committed suicide.”
     “I’m so sorry you find this fun, silly proclamation anything more than that,” Bornstein wrote in his response to [former commissioner JoAnn] Golden. “I could easily become consumed with a sense of over correctness in almost everything involved in government. However, I refuse to become devoid of all the wonderful human emotions including, most importantly, humor.

This coming September 19th is International Talk Like A Pirate Day (ITLAPD) again.

A proclamation for ITLAPD went off without a hitch at the City Commission last year.

Former District 4 Commissioner Ryan Maier won “Best Pirate Hat”.

To learn more interesting facts about ITLAPD use this link to Wikipedia. Here is a short and informative video; learn some tips how to “Talk Like A Pirate”.

Remember, there will be no merriment and the beatings will continue until morale improves!

Funny how Bornstein has made his critics look stupid. Then he smiles at them too which drives them batsh!t. Day after day all the lemmings following JoAnn have no idea how stupid they all look. Carry on you existential Pirate. Drive all those nitwits to lala land. Argh
