What they outta do is put all the pirates on a boat and like blow up the boat so there won't be any more pirates.

If this doesn't reform them, sentence them to 10 years in Detroit.

A+ would read again.

It's a slight fudge, since the proper pronunciation is "say-shell." But I'll take it.

Ok, I am dumb.

Would someone explain the headline? I understand and appreciate alliteration (sp?), but what of it?

"She sells seashells by the seashore."

A classic tongue-twister well-modified to fit the headline.

Hell, I'll give it another +1 jus' on principle.

Speaking for those of us too clueless to "get it", I can say with confidence that we understand that it is a play on "She sells sea shells by the sea shore" but are having trouble understanding how, word-for-word, the new headline describes the situation at hand. Please assist.

See cells (You're going to prison).
In the Seychelles (location of said prison)
for the sea scores (for trying to loot ships as pirate, like scoring booty)

That's pretty much what I had pieced together, but it didn't seem clever enough to earn the adulation that people were heaping on it. I thought maybe there was more to it.

Oh well, back to wanking to Christie Brinkley then. Tally-ho!

Should just turn them over to the Russian Navy from now on a much much better solution.

On a somewhat related note: On friday I was riding to work and I saw a Jolly Roger Flag on the ground. So I picked it up, hoisted it up my seat post and Now I fly the skull and bones matey. I am the silicon valley bike Pirate. Soon I will loot and pillage and plunder and lay waste to the valley. I will whench too, can't forget the whenching.

There are many jokes that I feel that way about, where people wonder why I'm not laughing and I wonder why they are. But in this case, I thought the headline was sufficiently clever to warrant a +1, would read again.

Oh well, back to wanking to Christie Brinkley then. Tally-ho!

Can't figure out why we ever stopped.

That's not an inhuman suggestion. You want something inhuman and/or evil? Make them watch and listen to this (new window)over and over every day.

"She sells seashells by the seashore" is a common tongue twister.

i dnrtfa, but that is definitely a candidate for headline of the year. totally awesome.
 
2010-07-27 2:13:19 AM  
So if they're terrorist cells, they would now be cells in cells in the Seychelles?

Wow, that's almost like recursion.
 
2010-07-27 4:00:55 AM  
This is a better headline than the voting indicates.

Uhm, highly doubtful. Maxxlarge and "brilliant" are 2 words that never go together...unless the sentence is something like "maxxlarge is a brilliant farkwad"

Also used extensively in speech therapy.
