Ahoy Milwaukee mateys – and a happy Talk Like a Pirate Day to you scallywags! OnMilwaukee originally posted this guide to creating your own MKE pirate name for our "Talk Like a Milwaukee Pirate Day" on May 24 last year, but in honor of the international holiday, we've brought it back. Enjoy!

Arrrrgh! Pirate names can be hard. But we've made it as easy as we could for you to get in on the fun of our own made-up holiday. Read on, and use your name proudly all day long! 

Carolynn Buser Editorial & Social Director
Carolynn Buser is one of Milwaukee's loudest and most adamant cheerleaders (don't dare try to disagree). She's the primary voice behind much of OnMilwaukee.com's social media, and apologizes in advance if she can be too sarcastic at times.

What else? She's a wine lover, closet trashy novel reader, beauty supplies addict and devourer of cheese (shocker for a Wisconsin born and bred girl, right?). She's also a bit of a foodie, which is a word most of you hate, we know. So, you've probably seen her at one of the area's newest restaurant openings (and yes, she will share her opinions good or bad) or enjoying her newfound love, the Dark and Stormy, at a local pub.

All in all, Carolynn's a believer in positive thinking and will do her best to smack down your negative ones while writing about her city, her loves, quests and more.
