Dressing as a pirate for Halloween? The New York Times' Jeffrey Gettleman has a guide to the Somali pirate lifestyle that may offer some inspiration. Show up at a party in a big car—that's how Somali pirates roll. Maybe accessorize with some items of the pirate's favorite booty: "Sheep, goats, water, fuel, rice, spaghetti, milk and cigarettes." And, if you're looking to pick up a lady, try dancing and serving her goat. "It was wonderful," said one Somali woman of a recent pirate party. "I'm now dating a pirate." Kidnapping civilians and ruining your nation's economy in the Somali fashion, however, is probably taking the costume one step too far.
