I thought Christopher‘s suggestion intriguing.

And I found where it is specifically:

After accepting the application, you select your language as “English (Pirate)”. Then your facebook pages will all be labeled in pirate. For example, the “Log out” link is now “Abandon ship”.

Thanks, @Christopher!

Arrrr mateys. So ye all be knowin’ the ol’ Pirate joke which goes,

“What’s a Pirate’s Favorite letter?” Avast, the answer be “R” (arrrrrrr)

So, ye scallywags, this be one of my 7 year old buccaneer’s favorite jokes.

So me mateys, I decided to turn ye plank on the lad.

I asked me first mate, “What’s a dumb pirate’s favorite letter?” Of course the landlubber answered “arrrrr”. But I told ‘im he be wrong me boy, for the correct answer be “Q” (quooooooooooo).

Me lad had a good laugh at that one ‘e did, but ahoy the next day, he be turnin’ the plank on me.

Me little buccaneer asks me, “What’s a dumb pirate’s favorite letter.”

Lo I remember asking the little landlubber this very question nary a day before, so I give ‘im the reply, “quooooo”.

Avast, ‘e outsmarted me ‘e did, when ‘e said “no, sevennnnnnnnn”

Laughed so hard, almost made mead shoot out me nose and into me eyesocket.
