This pirate day thing is outlawed at Apple

Lots of people are writing in asking how we celebrate this crazy “Talk Like A Pirate Day” thing at Apple. Simple: We don’t. Reason: I said so. I can’t stand things like this. Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Easter. Honestly, who dreams this crap up? I actually had to have Steve Dowling send around a memo telling people no pirate costumes, no pirate talking and no pirate email. Drives me nuts. Arrr. (Photo: Garth Sarsgaard, Harvard Yard.)
