pirate Somalia Pirate Joke

From BWJokes.com:

I was checking cruise lines because I heard the rates are
very cheap right now.


I found a Somali cruise package that departs from Sawakin
(in the Sudan) and docks at Bagamoya (in Tanzania).


The cost is a bit high @ $800 per person double occupancy
but I didn't find that offensive. What I found encouraging and
enlightened is that the cruise is encouraging people to bring
their 'High powered weapons' along on the cruise. If you
don't have weapons you can rent them right there on the
boat.


They claim to have a master blacksmith on board and will have
reloading parties every afternoon. The cruise lasts from 4-8
days and nights and costs a maximum of $3200 per person
double occupancy (4 days). All the boat does is sail up and
down the coast of Somalia waiting to get hijacked by pirates.
Here are some of the costs and claims associated with the
package.


$800.00 US/per day double occupancy (4 day max billing)

M-16 full auto rental $25.00/day ammo at 100 rounds of 5.56
armor piercing ammo at $15.95


Ak-47 riffle @ No charge. ammo at 100 rounds of 7.62 com
block ball ammo at $14.95


Barrett M-107 .50 cal sniper riffle rental $55.00/day ammo at
25 rounds 50 cal armor piercing at $9.95 ea.


Crew members can double as spotters for $30.00 per hour
(spotting scope included).


Jesus Christ---- they even offer RPG's at 75 bucks and 200
dollars for 3 standard loads


"Everyone gets use of free complimentary night vision equipment
and coffee and snacks on the top deck from 7pm-6am."


Meals are not included but seem reasonable.

Most cruises offer a mini-bar... these gung ho entrepreneurs
offer....... .. get this....."MOUNTED MINIGUN AVAILABLE @
$450.00 per 30 seconds of sustained fire"


Sign my ass up!

They advertise group rates and corporate discounts... ... and
even claim "FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY". They even
offer a partial money back if not satisfied... .here's some text
from the ad.


"We guarantee that you will experience at least two hijacking
attempts by pirates or we will refund half your money back
including gun rental charges and any unused ammo (mini
gun charges not included).. How can we guarantee you will
experience a hijacking? We operate at 5 knots within 12 miles
of the coast of Somalia. If an attempted Hijacking does not
occur, we will turn the boat around and cruise by at 4 knots.
We will repeat this for up to 8 days making three passes a day
along the entire length of Somalia. At night the boat is fully lit
and bottle rockets are shot off at intervals and loud disco
music beamed shore side to attract attention. Cabin space is
limited so respond quickly. Reserve your package before
May 29 and get 100 rounds of free tracer ammo in the caliber
of your choice."


As if all that isn't enough to whet your appetite, there were a few
testimonials


"I got three confirmed kills on my last trip. I'LL never hunt big
game in Africa again. I felt like the Komandant in Schindlers list!"
Lars, Hamburg Germany


"Six attacks in 4 days was more than I expected. I bagged three
pirates and my 12yr old son sank two rowboats with the minigun.
PIRATES 0 -PASSENGERS- 32! Well worth the trip. Just make
sure your spotter speaks English"
Ned, Salt Lake city, Utah USA

A Harley rider is passing the zoo, when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion' s cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents. The biker jumps off his bike, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch. Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly.
>A New York Times reporter has watched the whole event. The reporter says, ' Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I saw a man do in my whole life. '
>The biker replies, ' Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger, and acted as I felt right. '
>The reporter says, ' Well, I ' m a journalist from the New York Times, and tomorrow ' s paper will have this story on the front page... So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have? '
>The biker replies, ' I ' m a U.S. Marine and a Republican. '
>The following morning the biker buys The New York Times to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads on the front page:

An Amish farmer walking through his field notices a man drinking from his pond, with his hand.

The Amish man shouts:

"Trinken Sie nicht das Wasser, die Kuhe und die Schweine haben in ihm geschissen!"

Which means: "Don't drink the water, the cows and the pigs have **** in it!"

The man shouts back: "I'm a Muslim, I don't understand your gibberish. Speak English, infidel!"

The Amish man shouts back in English:

"Use two hands, you'll get more!"

THE SOUTH . . . YOU GOTTA LOVE IT!!!!

TENNESSEE . . .

The owner of a golf course was confused about paying an invoice, so he decided to ask his secretary for some mathematical help.

He called her into his office and said: "You graduated from the University of Tennessee , and I need some help. If I were to give you $20,000, minus 14%, how much would you take off?"

The secretary thought a moment, and then replied: "Everything but my earrings."



ALABAMA . . .

A group of Alabama friends went deer hunting and paired off in twos for the day. That night one of the hunters returned alone, staggering under the weight of an eight-point b uck.

"Where's Henry?" the others asked.

"Henry had a stroke of some kind. He's a couple of miles back up the trail," the successful hunter replied.

"You left Henry laying out there, and carried the deer back?" they inquired.

"A tough call," nodded the hunter, "but I figured no one is going to steal Henry!"



TEXAS . . .

The Sheriff pulled up next to the guy unloading garbage out of his pick-up into the ditch.

The Sheriff asked: "Why are you dumping garbage in the ditch? Don't you see that sign right over your head?"

"Yep", he replied; "that's why I'm dumpin it here . . . i t says 'Fine For Dumping Garbage'."



LOUISIANA . . .

A senior at LSU was overheard saying . . . "When the end of the world comes, I hope to be in Louisiana ."

When asked why, he replied he'd rather be in Louisiana because everything happens in Louisiana 20 years later than in the rest of the civilized world.



MISSISSIPPI . . .

The young man from Mississippi came running into the store and said to his buddy: "Bubba, somebody just stole your pickup truck from the parking lot!"

Bubba replied: "Did you see who it was?"

The young man answered: "I couldn't tell, but I got his license number."



GEORGIA . . .

A Georgia State trooper pulled over a pickup on I- 75. The trooper asked: "Got any I.D.?"

The driver replied: "Bout whut?"



NORTH CAROLINA . . .

A man in North Carolina had a flat tire, pulled off on the side of the road, and proceeded to put a bouquet of flowers in front of the car and one behind it. Then he got back in the car to wait.

A passerby studied the scene as he drove by and was so curious he turned around and went back. He asked the fellow what the problem was.

The man replied: "I have a flat tire."

The passerby asked: "But what's with the flowers?"

The man responded: "When you break down they tell you to put flares in the front and flares in the back. Hey, it don't make no sense to me neither."



AND THIS FROM SOUTH CAROLINA . . .

'You can say what you want about the South, but I ain't never heard of anyone wanting to retire to the North'

Some times you just have to ask yourself "Will I live to be 80?"

I recently chose a new primary care physician.
After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, he said I was doing "fairly well"
for my age.
A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him
"Do you think I'll live to be 80?"
He asked,"Do you smoke tobacco or drink alcoholic beverages?"
"No," I replied. "I don't do drugs, either."
Then he asked, "Do you eat ribeye steaks and barbequed ribs?"
I said, "No, my other doctor said that all red meat is unhealthy."
"Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, boating, fishing or relaxing on the beach?"
"No, I don't" I said.
He asked, "Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?"
"No," I said. "I don't do any of those things."
Then he looked at me and asked, "Then why do you give a ****?"

Right you are, Gord. Jim doesn't know everything, including how to spell "everything." (Second line on his page.)

A friend once mentioned that only 5% of women make it to heaven. I asked why only 5%? He said that any more than 5% and it would be hell.
