Swashbucklin’ Scallywags Put Grub in Their Gullet, No Doubloons Needed Me Hearties!

(Long John Silver’s Offers Free Food to Talk Like a Pirate Day Participants)

LOUISVILLE, Ky. September 15, 2016 – Scurvy scoundrels set sail for Long John Silver’s on Talk Like a Pirate Day for free grub, savvy? That means would-be pirates can head to the nation’s largest quick-service seafood restaurant on September 19 and earn some free food just for having a bit of fun. 

“Our whole system looks forward to this day every year”, said Marilyn Nicholson, Vice President of Marketing, Media and Promotions.   “We have as much fun celebrating as our guests.  Our social media will be filled with posts, tweets, photos and videos of crew members and customers in pirate gear.”   

Talking like a pirate will earn you a piece of classic hand-battered, whitefish or chicken, and dressing like a pirate will get you a two-piece basket. 

Suggestions for Talking like a Pirate:

“Ahoy matey, I’ve come to plunder me free fish!”

“What be a pirate’s favorite letterrrrrr? Arrrr!!”

Be sure to follow the pirate code of dressin’ or be prepared to walk the plank. To be considered dressed like a pirate, ye’ must wear three pirate-themed items such as skull and crossbones, hat, bandana, or a parrot (no real birds, please.)
