There's stupid and then there's Somali Pirate stupid

BUWAHAHAHAHA! They attacked the USS Nicholas FFG-47 with a skiff?

Oliver Hazard Perry-class guided missile frigates are armed with a 76mm water cooled gun capable of firing 120 rounds per minute, not to mention all the other armament they sport.

And they attacked it in a small sea-going fishing boat with some AK-47s and RPGs. BUWAHAHAHAHA!

From the article: "It was not the first attack against a Navy ship, but it underscored the fact that most pirates aren't terribly sophisticated".

I'm not often truly entertained by the news but as an ex-member of Uncle Sam's Canoe Club I just can't stop laughing at this shit.
