Pirates of the Caribbean vs Modern Somali Pirates


Pirates of the Caribbean:
Cutlasses! Pistols! Cannonballs! Broadsides! Wooden ships! Iron men! The Brotherhood! Bottles of rum! Dead man's chests! Henry Morgan! Blackbeard! Johnny Depp!

Modern Somali pirates:
Rubber boats. Outboard motors. AK-47s.

Additional note:
Presumably, both sides have parrots...

Is this assuming that the pirates from The Pirates of the Caribbean are not immortal? ; )
