It seems that not only does the president understands the appeal of the pirate life, he occasionally invites the mateys into his office. Obama's Twitter account released a photo of Obama deep in conversation with a flamboyant pirate character.

Talk like a Pirate Day has been around since 2002 and is trending nationally on Wednesday with the hashtag #talklikeapirateday.
Last year on Sept. 19, a House Republican said Obama mistook the meaning of the day to be "act like a pirate" day as the president pushed his plan to raise taxes on the wealthy. It seems Obama wanted to clear up that misunderstanding this year.
