Best Pirate I've Ever Seen.

I've been treating the fact that piracy has returned to the waters off Somalia like some kind of fluke - imagine, pirates, in this day and age! But news that they were able to snatch a fraking supertanker carrying more than $100 million worth of crude makes this officially serious. Serious means anything that raises my gas prices. Where's the navy? Not just ours, all of them. I'm thinking stopping piracy is a basic function of the navy. Billions of dollars gets spent each year for you to sail around in your fancy boats. There are no wars at sea going on. It's time to use that boat for something other than picking up chicks in foreign ports.

Get on it.

UPDATE: Score one for the Indian Navy.
