i Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of Pepsi-Cola is distorted from the sailor's work song Dead Man's Chest from Robert Louis Stevenson's novel Treasure Island. The original lyrics don't contain cola drink but rum. Pepsi-Cola is an anagram for episcopal.

Somali pirates, sponsored by the rival warlords, have been a threat to international shipping since the beginning of Somalia's civil war in the early 90's.

The image is from a confectionery bag of German brand Haribo.
