Disney Encourages Crime

Pirate attacks off the African coast and Southeast Asia have risen 14 percent in the first nine months of 2007 from the previous year.
198 attacks on ships were reported between January and September this year, with 174 in the same period in 2006.
Pirates in Somalia are operating with impunity, seizing vessels hundreds of miles off the coast and holding the vessel and crew to ransom forcing them to walk the plank and singing sea chanteys , making no attempt to hide their activity.

These crimes forces us to question whether the Pirates of the Caribbean movies are encouraging such anti-social behaviour.
Johnny Depp was unavailable for comment but Old Knudsen a former salty sea dog and scourge of the six seas was as usual available and more than willing to comment.

" Those Johnny Deep films don't encourage video piracy in my opinion as they are shite, the only crime they encourage is making me put a brick through the window of Blockbuster for making me pay to watch it."
Since the "Pirate" movies first came out the number of pirates checking into rehab has doubled, earlier this year Pirate Steve died of a rum and coke overdose citing in his suicide note "The pressures to be more Piratey."
