I Do Feel Sorry For These People, I Really Do

But how damned stupid are they?

(CNN) — Pirates took four European tourists hostage after their yacht ran out of fuel off the coast of northern Somalia in the Red Sea’s Gulf of Aden, according to a Somaliland official.
The pirates then took their hostages — a man, woman, their child and their yacht’s pilot — into hills around the fishing town of Las Qoray, said Ahmed Yusuf Yasin, vice president of the self-declared Republic of Somaliland.

Given all the press about pirate activities around the playland paradise that is “Somaliland,” what kind of moronic idiots would charter a yacht and take their kid on a little cruise…and then run out of gas?

    Mr. Bingley, I’ve heard of nearly stupid acts taking place right here in the US of A, like people venturing into bona fide wilderness areas without any significant preparation.
    But I must admit….this takes the cake. Poor kids.

    The same sort of idiots that go to Haiti for a “sex vacation”…

    Don’t worry, Somaliland will take care of their safety.
    They shouldn’t be there but mistakes happen. After all, we’re humans.

    Sounds like they landed a big one.
