If you’re anything like me, you’re completely consumed by all of the pirate talk. News stories have increased exponentially over the past few months documenting pirate adventures…err crimes. These are real honest to god pirates…Not some scene from The Life Aquatic.
Well take that pirates! This is America! I was absolutely delighted to see this story when I woke up today. Apparently some Somali pirates (they all seem to be from Somalia) attempted to hijack a US. cruise liner in dangerous waters off the coast of Yemen. What the ship was doing there is beyond me. Luckily, the pleasure cruise captain managed to outrun the bad guys, even while taking fire. So cool! I’m fairly certain some bloated Americans aboard thought it was a really good re-enactment of Pirates of the Carribean, The Ride.
Next year’s Talk Like A Pirate Day is gonna be awesome.
