Somali Pirates: Leave the Gun. Take the Cannoli.

Even more mind-bending than the fact that everyone's favorite pirate stand-off remains unresolved is word that the pirates have a spokesperson. In case you are in the market for a pirate spokesperson, his name is Mr. Sugule Ali.

So what Mr. Ali saying? Take the ship but we'll keep the tanks, thank-you-very-much.

Bad news for the pirates, however. The Kenyan government has declined to pay any ransom. Aparently, there are rules against negotiating with hijackers.

Clearly, someone was sleeping in class when they discussed Warren Buffett's first rule of buisness: you never know how much something is worth, until you buy it and try and sell it yourself.

Or in this case, hijack it.
