So, I may be late in posting this, but I have certainly be sharing this with people; I was talking about it all last week. This is the most awesomely hilarious thing I have read in the news in a long time.

I suspect the media took a joke seriously, or at best that the real reason the pirates retreat is that they know when the music comes on it means that there are armed forces who are aware of- and prepared to deal with- their presence. But, still. Let’s just pretend this is something that can be taken totally seriously, k?
