The Closet Moderate: Avast ye!

Avast ye!

Today, we must take our attention away from our impending financial doom to address an equally compelling problem: pirates. According to the Washington Post, a publication notorious for its pro-piracy bias, Somali pirates have hijacked a cargo ship in the Arabian Sea. Its cargo: tanks. Not fish tanks, mind you, but honest-to-God Russian T-72 tanks.

This is the nightmare scenario, people. Pirates have always ruled the seas with their quick swordplay and judicious use of eyeliner, but now they could acheive land superiority as well. My advice: avoid the sea-shore until this crisis is resolved. And for God's sake, bury your gold and other booty in a secure location!

Aye. That event occurred less than a week after Nation Talk Like a Pirate Day. Coincidence? I think not.
