How to make Facebook Talk Like a Pirate

In honor of the web ubiquitous holiday, Talk Like a Pirate Day, Facebook let's you select English (Pirate) in the language settings and you end up with a screen that looks like this:

How do you set Facebook to talk like a Pirate?

  1. Go to Settings (top right)
  2. Choose the Language tab
  3. From the pull down menu choose English (Pirate)

You may have to go in tomorrow, or even late this afternoon, when you've finally grown weary of all this Piratish Frivolity and turn it back to whatever language you prefer. Settings will be spelled Settins.

NB: Props to TechCrunch.
