Today is "International Talk Like a Pirate Day," which was started by two guys, John Baur and Mark Summers, back in 1995. But, the "Argh" didn't really take off until Dave Barry wrote about it in his column on 9 Sept 2002. Go here to read Dave Barry's original column. The history of "Talk Like a Pirate Day," and its resulting aftermath, is explained on its founder's website. So, get your pirate talk on, or ye be seeing the pointy enda me sword!
