Dear Captain Gizmo,
I’m really excited about Talk Like A Pirate Day, and want to make sure I’m outfitted right. I got some of that glitter makeup so I can sparkle in the sun, but I’m not sure how much to use. How much do pirates sparkle in the sun?
Hiya Cap’n Gizmo!
I think I’m all ready for Talk Like A Pirate Day this year! I’ve got my wand, and some of that makeup for the scar on my forehead. I’m also planning on wearing my bathrobe. Is there anything I forgot?
This year will be the best Pirate’s Day ever! I’ve got my black outfit, katana sword, and shurikens ready. How do you learn to throw those things on a moving ship? I tried practicing in my living room and almost hit my cat! Any help would be appreciated.

I am really excited for this year’s Walk Like a Primate Day. This year I want to walk like a chimpanzee, but I just end up looking like a bad extra from Planet of the Apes. Do you have any pointers?
