Dolphins Protect Boats From Somali Pirates

by | 15th, April 2009

HAVING invested heavily in the Pirate Scheme to save the world’s economy, how typical that the dolphins should ruin it.

As the headline says:

Thousands of dolphins block Somali pirates

Pirates have deployed rocket-propelled grenades and automatic weapons to attack another US merchant ship off the coast of Somalia, says reports. Show me the money!


THOUSANDS of dolphins blocked the suspected Somali pirate ships when they were trying to attack Chinese merchant ships passing the Gulf of Aden.

China Radio International reported the Chinese merchant ships escorted by a China’s fleet sailed on the Gulf of Aden when they met some suspected pirate ships. Thousands of dolphins suddenly leaped out of water between pirates and merchants when the pirate ships headed for the China’s.

Piracy, not privacy, stoopid (via Tim Blair):

The suspected pirates ships stopped and then turned away. The pirates could only lament their littleness before the vast number of dolphins. The spectacular scene continued for a while.

Send for the Japanese!
