What's The Diff?

The things Quicken Loans team members care about and want to share with the world

September 19th is Talk Like a Pirate Day AND the Day Emoticons Were Born!

Shiver Me Timbers! Who would have thought that talkin’ like a pirate and the little smiley face that we’ve become so familiar with, would have somethin’ in common? Aye, they do! It seems that today be the day for us to celebrate both.

Check out the article that is one of Yahoo’s top news stories for today: Origin of the Smiley Face.

And take some time to polish up your Piratese and learn how to talk like a pirate!

ARG, I wonder if they have a pirate emoticon?

Editor’s note: Check out a pirate message Jen left to the Quicken Loans Web Marketing Team earlier this year. Arrggh. Meet me in Davy Jones Locker.

  2. Very good pirate dialect. I would have guessed it was from Blue Beard himself.
