Somalis and Johnny Depp

Mark Steyn imagines Pirates of the Caribbean ending where we treat them like the pirates of today.
I doubt Pirates of the Caribbean would have cleaned up at the box office if the big finale had shown Geoffrey Rush and his crew of scurvy sea dogs settling down in council flats in Manchester and going down to the pub for a couple of jiggers of rum washed down to cries of “Aaaaargh, shiver me benefits check, lad.” From “Avast, me hearties!” to a vast welfare scam is not progress.
Can't wait to see Disney World change the ride to represent this.
