Funniest story of the day


The AP reports that five of the Somali pirates who freed a Saudi oil supertanker drowned with their cut of a $3 million ranson when their small boat went under in a storm in the Gulf of Aden. The Sirius Star had been seized by pirates in mid-November and was carrying crude oil valued at $100 million. On Friday, the ransom was dropped by parachute from a helicopter (see photo), and the pirates scattered, but witnesses saw a boat with eight of them aboard go down in the storm. Five drowned, and their cut of the ransom went under with them. Ah, karma.

It would be even funnier if the other pirates drowned trying to recover the money! Now THAT would be karma!
