Arrrrrr you ready to get a free donut at Krispy Kreme? How about a free dozen donuts?

On September 19, participating shops in the U.S. and Canada will hand out free donuts to guests celebrating Talk Like a Pirate Day, one of the more enjoyable nonsense holidays.

“Any swashbuckling guest who talks like a pirate will receive one free Original Glazed doughnut, while fans who dress like a pirate will receive one dozen Original Glazed doughnuts,” the company’s Facebook event explains.

No purchase necessary!

But even if you’re planning on reusing it for Halloween, a full pirate costume isn’t exactly cheap, and Krispy Kreme’s specifies you must wear at least three “pirate items” to qualify. If only there was an easier way to get a dozen free donuts…

Oh, wait. There is.

Don’t Want to Dress Up? You Can Still Get Free Donuts

Look for a custom Krispy Kreme Snapchat filter starting September 17 to “digitally dress” like a pirate.

“Any guest who shows their Snapchat image at a participating shop will qualify for a dozen Original Glazed doughnuts. Show your snap to a team member inside the shop and score ye bounty,” Krispy Kreme says on Facebook.

Of course, if you’re trying to practice a life of moderation (and don’t have an office of hungry co-workers to share with, ahem), you can simply toss around some quick pirate banter and slip out of the store with your free donut.

Krispy Kreme’s Pirate Doughnut is a cream-filled donut decorated with a cute pirate face. Cute enough to eat, right mateys?

Your Turn: Will you celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day for a free donut — or a dozen?
