Umm...and you thought these guys were WHAT?

Since so few Americans study history, it's no surprise that Somali pirates aren't well versed in history, either. Let's spell it out: Danish=Norsemen=Vikings= don't fuck with these people.

The Somali pirates wouldn't be the first people to have a slow learning curve on the idea. It took the Saxons about 100 years to figure out that truce with the Danes was a good idea. But then, the Saxons may have been the only people since the Stone Age thicker than Somali pirates. Now that the Danes have given up the battleaxes in favour of automatic weapons, though, I'd have thought the lesson might come quicker.

Ya, they've done other stuff than make cheese...and never mind that Hamlet guy.
