"an american couple that has sailed the world with a yacht full of bibles was hijacked by somali pirates".
the ap story is here, but you'll be disappointed. (i was). their writers went with the global geopolitical angle, and left almost all the good comedy untouched. (though jason straziuso and abdi guled did give us at least this one: "the pirates from puntland are not hardline islamists and the fact the adams carry bibles is not likely to be a problem. pirates in puntland are known to spend their ransom spoils on alcohol, drugs and prostitutes.")
obviously the good old fashion kind of pirates.
