OK, so this clearly falls into modern Somalian-style piracy, which we don’t really cover here. But it also falls into pop culture since it’s a pirate move. And it involves Samuel Jackson, so it clearly falls into the “awesome” territory.
Fine, I admit that the only reason I’m posting this is so that I can make a joke about Jackson yelling, “I’m sick and tired of these <monkey-freaking> pirates on this <monkey-freaking> plane!!!”
