Spearing pirates

Britney Spears is being used as a secret weapon… to scare off Somali pirates.
Her hits are blasted out to deter kidnap attacks, merchant navy officer Rachel Owens revealed.
Spears’ Oops! I Did It Again and Baby One More Time have proved to be the most effective at keeping the bandits at bay.  Second Officer Owens, who works on supertankers off the east coast of Africa, said: ‘Her songs were chosen by the security team because they thought the pirates would hate them most.
"These guys can’t stand Western culture or music, making Britney’s hits perfect."  [Source]   BJS
