    Luxury Yacht Company Offers Pirate-Hunting Cruises

    Passengers on a new cruise along the coast of Somalia are paying to catch more than just salmonella.

    A Russian luxury yacht company is now offering pirate-hunting trips that promise the chance to be attacked by real sea bandits. The yachts cruise from Djibouti to Mombasa in Kenya at deliberately low speeds in the hopes of attracting pirates.

    Passengers pay $5,000 for the trip, and an extra $17.50 a day for an AK-47 and 100 rounds of ammo. The price includes free origami towels in the rooms. Former Special Forces troops are on board to make sure none of the cruise passengers are injured.

    And for entertainment, the comedy stylings of Geechy Guy!

    Uhh... I dont think this is a joke- but I hope it is! We have some posters here who speak German or Austrian right? Here's where the story originated from- can you translate?:

    Pirate-hunting....PIRATE HUNTING? They're people, not freakin' game!

    I hope every single one of the morons who board this Darwin Award Candidates' Cruise gets done in by pirates. Or sharks, I'll settle for sharks.

    Ok, now the German article says it's probably satire. While that's a relief, I can't get over the replies in that first article. It was my mistake for reading the comments-I had to double check this wasn't posted in some white supremacist web-site (on the second page someone is dropping N-Bombs. And someone randomly brings up the 'murder of unborn babies'. I hate people.)
