    Somali Pirates in Discussions to Acquire Facebook

     

    The Somali pirates, renegade Somalis known for hijacking ships for ransom in the Gulf of Aden, are negotiating a purchase of Facebook.The pirates would buy Facebook with new debt and their existing cash stockpiles, earned most recently from hijacking numerous ships, . Head pirate, Ubu Kalid Shandu, said: "We need Facebook so that we have a place to keep all of our ransom money. Thankfully, the dislocations in the capital markets has allowed us to purchase Facebook at an attractive valuation and to take advantage of TARP capital to grow the business even faster.

    The Somali pirates are offering up to $0.10 per share for Facebook, pirate spokesman Sugule Ali said earlier today.

    The negotiations have entered the final stage. Ali stated, “You may not like our price, but we are not in the business of paying for things. Be happy we are in the mood to offer the shareholders anything at all.”

    The pirates will finance part of the purchase by selling new Pirate Ransom Backed Securities. The PRBS’s are backed by future ransom payments from hijackings in the Gulf of Aden. Moody’s and S&P have already issued their top AAA investment grade ratings for the PRBS’s.The deal is also backed by,Goldman Sachs,The Mexican drug cartels ,Warren Buffett,and the Richard Nixon's re-election campaign
