Somali Pirates: Take Note

Was trolling around downtown Annapolis yesterday and saw this. I love it when strangers crack me up. It's hanging outside Mill's Wine & Spirits on the city dock, the liquor store I featured at the end of my story "Shot Back" over on Thrilling Detective a few months ago (there's a new killer issue of So & Smith's Thrilling Detective up now btw, so go check it out.) I didn't have my digital camera so props to the USNI for the image. Goddamn. Got to friggin' love the Navy SEALs.
