Arrgh pirates!

Okay, not exactly canal related, but BBC News yesterday reported about a tanker being Hijacked off the coast of Somalia.

Pirates have seized two European-owned tankers off the coast of Somalia in the past day, officials have said. The Greek-owned vessel Nipayia, with 19 crew on board, was seized on Wednesday … The Norwegian-owned tanker Bow Asir was captured by pirates on Thursday. It had a crew of 27 on board …  Warships from more than a dozen nations currently patrol the region, following a spike in pirate attacks in 2008.

If it sounds like deja-vu it’s probably as it seems to be getting a regular occurrence now. You can tell its getting almost mundane when someone starts creating comedic video’s, like the one below that’s on Weebl’s Stuff

Sorry to all, if you end up humming the tune after you’ve left the page 😉 . For your information – there’s a reference to Kenya, because he did one about that country before this (this is mainly a re-themed version of that one).
