Ok, so maybe the Chinese didn't actually have anything to do with getting the massive pod of dolphins to surface between their merchant ships and the pirates, but even still -- what a cool story.
The story comes from Xinhuanet
, the official media mouthpiece for the Chinese government and came with this gem of a line:
The pirates could only lament their littleness before the vast number of dolphins.
Don't mess with Mother Nature, she'll dolphin smack you right upside the head.
