'Nuff said

(Occasional item taking context-optional note of thought-provoking quotes)


The pirates are highly organized. They work in teams. There is even a pirate spokesman (who could not be reached for comment on Friday).

-- Jeffrey Gettleman, in a New York Times article about 21st C. piracy, a phenomenon on which IntLawGrrls often has posted.
Think my 16th C. transnational foremother had her own advance team?

Being Muslims, they must be peaceful pirates at least. These Somali Buccaneer monkeys are out of control. They go out for weeks in little rickety boats with just weapons and water and eat raw fish they catch and keep hijacking bigger then bigger, then bigger boats.

These terrorist monkeys must be exterminated with extreme prejudice. Sending several drones into their camps when they're fat and happy celebrating their new money should do the trick.

Lots of great Pirate coverage over at Dinah Lord:

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
don't exterminate pirates

seizing ships for ransom
everybody gets rich

.
absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
let pirates operate

you will get cut of ransom
and maybe some weapons too
