A Japanese ship, drifting aimlessly in the Pacific for over a year since last year's tsunami, is finally going to come to rest -- possibly on the shores of Alaska or Canada. Unless -- UNLESS -- you and I get to it first and turn it into a pirate ship! *flipping down eyepatch* Yaaaaarrrr, let's do this thing, matey! "Don't call me matey." Yaaaaarrrr, let's do this thing, pencil-dick.
U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer 1st Class David Mosley said Sunday the coast guard dropped a data marker on the ship Saturday so they would have a constant, real-time position on the ship.
"It has the potential to be a hazard, especially with the unknown of what's on board, the direction that the vessel could be travelling."
A Transport Canada spokeswoman said marine currents and winds could make the vessel's destination unpredictable; a warning has been issued to mariners to watch for the potential hazard.
"We will ensure that it does not wash ashore on the Canadian coast," Sau Sau Liu said.
As my tipster Sam pointed out, there's a possibility this thing is being sailed by a crew of radioactive ghost pirates, hellbent on claiming Alaska for their own. "Let them have it?" Hey, I'm cool with it if you are.
Thanks to sam, who agrees those radioactive ghost pirates better build a f***ing amusement park like one in The Curse Of Monkey Island.
