Britney Spears Songs Used to Drive Away Pirates

The Daily Mail reports:
Navy ships are using Britney Spears to scare off Somali pirates.

Captains are playing the popstar's hits at full volume to deter 'western culture-hating' pirates and stop them boarding the ships, merchant navy officer Rachel Owens revealed to the Metro.

Classic hits Baby One More Time and Oops! I Did It Again are being used and have proved effective at stopping kidnap attempts from bandits.

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.’
I don't think it is just the fact the pirates hate Western culture. I don't hate Western culture, but these songs would drive me away too.
