Change Language In Facebook To English(Pirate) Mode

Since facebook relies on it’s users for translation, a bunch of Pirate fans have created a language dubbed English(Pirate). It adds an overall fun to the facebook profile by changing the words such as Home to Home Port, Friends to Mates Y’might Know, etc. Below is the screenshot showing the new language in action.

    If youre in an arabic-spoken country this wont help you, cause facebook switches auto to the language spoken in the current country.
    Im located in The Faroe Islands. I switched to arabic just for fun, and I wasnt able to change back to faroese. There was NO english stuff to press on.

    I was able to change back by deleting all browsing history; located in “tools”.
