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.

Karma is a wonderful thing and not to be messed with...

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