The 24 sailors, including 16 Bulgarians, taken hostage Monday by Somali pirates are reported to be safe and well according to the UK newspaper The Times.

Somali pirates hijacked the 32 000-tonne Malaspina Castle, a British-owned cargo ship , which flies a Panamanian flag, on Monday morning in the Gulf of Aden, according to reports.

She was the fifth ship boarded in two days off the Somali coast despite naval patrols along the main shipping lanes in the area.

The vessel has a crew of 24, from Russia, Ukraine, Bulgaria and the Philippines.

Somalia's pirates had been having a quiet year after their bumper haul in 2008, when they took almost 50 vessels.
Pirates are currently holding at least 15 vessels with some 250 crew members.

'It might have been a win-win situation. A drunken orgy comes to mind. Fun for us and fun for them. You have no imagination, lamb chop.'

Babo Nellie, I'm sure you would have enjoyed that with your fellow muslim Somalian 'brothers'.

"Hehehe!! Just imagine if it had been darta turkinya Nellie and Wide Load on board? Those pirates would have ran (or swam) a mile when they laid eyes on that pair of rakiya sodden sharks."

'So far so good. But when the Bulgarian, the Russian and the Ukrainian saylors run out of alcohol, the pirates have to think about some sort of solution or face the saylors resistance when they are left with nothing else to drink except water.'
