Avast! Freebooters Abast!

It's really not funny, but there was an actual attack by pirates in the Seychelles (an island chain in the Indian Ocean, northeast of Madagascar):

MAHE, Seychelles - A cruise liner that was attacked by pirates over the weekend docked safely on this Indian Ocean archipelago Monday after changing its course to escape. Passengers described their horror as pirates in speedboats chased their luxury cruise liner at sea, firing rocket-propelled grenades and assault rifles — with smiles visible on faces otherwise hidden by ski masks.
