Want to put tasty free grub in your gullet? Well, shiver me timbers, today’s your lucky day: In honor of International Talk Like a Pirate Day on September 19, Time reports that Krispy Kreme is giving away a complementary glazed doughnut to all customers that speak like a swashbuckling buccaneer—and a free dozen to patrons dressed in full-on pirate regalia.

Fans of Talk Like a Pirate Day (and Krispy Kreme) might remember that the chain began offering the annual deal in 2012. This year, they've added a new twist: Customers who don't have time to assemble a themed outfit (or simply don't want to) can use Krispy Kreme’s Snapchat pirate filter to “dress” like a pirate instead. Simply show the Snapchat image to a Krispy Kreme team member and you’ll score a dozen free doughnuts.

For more details on the promotion, visit Krispy Kreme’s website. In the meantime, if your pirate slang needs a quick refresher, we’ve got you covered. And keep in mind that if you’re planning on dressing like a pirate, you’ll need to wear at least three items to be eligible for the dozen-doughnut giveaway. In addition to tricorn hats, we suggest eye patches, bandanas, peg legs, parrots, and a costume hook.
