Ahoy there, matey! Gather yer golden treasure, throw on yer best eye patch, and march down to the nearest Krispy Kreme.


September 19th marks International Talk Like a Pirate Day, a day designated to, well, slipping words like "chumbucket" and "shiver me timbers" into daily conversation without judgment.


In honor of all ye pirates, Krispy Kreme is handing out a free Original Glazed doughnut to anyone who talks like a pirate, and a dozen Original Glazed to anyone who dresses like a pirate.


To get a dozen doughnuts, pirate costumes must include at least three pirate items, like an eye patch or a bandana. Doughnut lovers can also use a custom Snapchat filter for digital pirate gear; just show your photo to any participating Krispy Kreme location and automatically qualify for a dozen doughnuts.

Krispy Kreme also unveiled two pirate-themed doughnuts ahead of Talk Like a Pirate Day.


The Pirate Doughnut (pictured above) has a cream filling, and the Skull and Crossbones doughnut is topped with chocolate icing and a white candy skull.

Meanwhile, everyone on Twitter is going HAM with pirate speak.
