Arrr, matey. September 19 be Talk Like a Pirate Day, and this year, it may also be known as Play Awesome Piratey Games Day. What’s a holiday for pirates without cheap or free pirates games, after all?

In celebration of everyone putting on weird pirate voices, LucasArts is dropping the price of the Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition on Steam and Direct2Drive to only $5, as well as cutting down the iPhone version’s price to just $4. Those special “holiday” prices last through the 21st. And with a special code from the Telltale Games website, you’ll be able to unlock the demo for Tales of Monkey Island and get the first season at a reduced price. It’s not free, of course, but it’s still full of piratey goodness.

    I’ve got a joke that you guys can use on Talk Like a Pirate Day. I came up with it when I was thinking about being a Dixie Riddle Cup writer…

    Q: How much does a pirate pay for corn?
    A: Arrrr… About a buck-an-ear!

    I will not quit my day job.

    An old pirate hobbled into a bar. Bartender asked what happened to his leg. “Shark bit it off when escaping the Lourds.” He then asked what happened to his hand, which had a hook on it. “Had to cut it off to escape the hanging.” Not grizzled yet, the bartender then inquired about the eyepatch. “First day with the hook.”
