Obama tweets like a pirate

Wednesday is International Talk Like a Pirate Day, a day when pirate wanna-bes everywhere can add some "arrr"s to their dialogue.

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.
