Trending: Free doughnuts for ‘Talk like a Pirate Day

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

ROANOKE (WSLS 10) – What started as a joke between friends is now known as international Talk Like a Pirate Day.

The parody holiday began more than two decades ago by two men nicknamed “Ol’ Chumbucket” and “Cap’n Slappy.”

Several businesses like Facebook and Google are getting in on the action.

In pirate mode, Facebook users have a captain’s log instead of a wall.

Participating Krispy Kreme locations are celebrating by giving away free doughnuts.

Speaking like a buccaneer will score you one free original glazed doughnut, but if you dress like a pirate or take a photo with a pirate filter on Snapchat, you’ll walk out with a free dozen!
