Somali Pirates Think Like Marc Chagall

Is life imitating art in Puntland? For example, these Somali pirates can play life:

And Marc Chagall’s America Windows will play our art:

Marc Chagall French, born Vitebsk, Russia (present-day Belarus), 1887–1985 America Windows,

  2. Kris: Work with me, Shipmate. The similarities are merely cosmetic. The colors are similar.
