Freakin Pirates!

They terrorize the trading routes and take hundreds of seamen prisoners for months at a time. As a result, world trade is heavily threatened and I will not be surprised if the cost of sea freight and marine insurance would drastically increase.

In their localities however, they become matinee idols. These ugly bastards get to marry the most beautiful maidens in their towns and they get to build the most beautiful houses. It is not unusual therefore, for kids to idolize and try to emulate these rough necks.

What has this world gotten into?
