Jolly Roger

15Apr09

I’ve just solved two intractable international crises in one go…

Why don’t all the seafaring nations club together to pay the French fishermen to blockade the ports of Somalia?

Result: happy fishermen and pirates who have to give up their criminal ways and earn an honest living by…er… fishing.

    Even better: because they’re french you don’t need to pay them, you can just threaten them with a pay cut (regarless of whether they currently get paid or not) and tell them the Somalian coast is the best place to protest against it.
    No pirate will break through that barricade!

  2. Good batting thinkman!
