Default Pirates attack Navy Ship

Suspected pirates nabbed after skirmish with U.S. Navy ship - CNN.com

Probably not the smartest of ideas to attack a US Navy ship. The end result can really only be 3 possibilities.
1. You get killed
2. You get captured
3. You get away

Unless it was their intent to be captured because being held by the U.S. is a higher standard of living than what they had, I really don't understand what they were thinking.

Those pirates have to be either the dumbest of all time. Then again, they could be brilliant. Either that or this is an April Fool's joke.

I suspect there isn't an IQ test for pirate candidates...

Pirate interview.

Pirate: "Can you shoot an AK?"

applicant: "Uh-huh"

Pirate: "Welcome aboard"

applicant: "Uh-huh"

I would imagine the typical Somali has an, oh, ZERO grade education. I don't think they even have schools in Somalia.

You just have to pass this vision test (said in your best pirate voice).

Let's bring back keel hauling. Or walking the plank.

I'd say a trip to Guantanamo but that is liable to get them to a comfy cell here in the US.
