With these hard economic times, there is not much to hope for. The unemployment rate is 8%, the banks are failing, and Obama doesn't seem to want to give me a bailout. I have decided to try a different path, one filled with adventure and booty, and I am not talking about trying for Moo's butt, once was enough. I mean pirating!
Ah yes, the fine life of a pirate. Think they don't exist, well think again! Pirates are still alive and well, making ends meet the pirate way. Sadly, pirating has changed over the years...and I know when I think of pirates, I think of Johnny Depp and his crazy eyeliner and seemingly bad hygiene. But, no, pirating has changed just a tad (from the...movies.) Pirates, due to the economic difficulties, now (and always but I will say now to drama it up,) resort to taking over other ships, massacring innocent (whatever that means) people and taking their loot or, what they like to refer to it as, booty, which I do not care how immature it makes me, I laugh at the word.
Anyway, pirates, not like the economy, seem to be doing pretty well...other than some of the being prosecuted for their Kenya stunts, they grossed about 15 billion dollars this year...which begs the question why they can't give me a bail out...but they are too busy to answer my phone calls.
So, they kill people? So, they rob people? So they go to random boats and take hostages for ransom? Doesn't sound too different from American politicians.
Anyway, if you are looking for a job, because you lost yours due to this financial crisis, there is always room for piracy, a life of adventure and fun...and murder and destruction.
