Somali Pirates practice inventory management

If I didn't know any better, I would think that this came from The Onion:

“A group of Somali pirates announced Sunday that they’re cutting their asking prices for hostages by 20 percent — to speed up the negotiation process, make room for more hostages and take in more cash,” reports Wired.  ”We want to free ships within a short period of time instead of keeping them for a long time and incurring more expenses in guarding them. We have to free them at a lower ransom so that we can hijack more ships,” one pirate spokesperson told Reuters.
I still have to go with Neo on this one:

One bullet + One Somali Pirate = 1 dead Somali Pirate
