Readers couldn't fail to note the irony yesterday when the HuffPo reported that pirate attacks interrupted shooting of two 'Pirates of the Caibbean' sequels. Today, in a further ironic tragedy, filming was once again interrupted when Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards conducted a daring daylight raid against the set.
Richards, wearing a higher-than-usual number of beads in his hair and walking suspiciously like Johnny Depp, used both guns and knives to conduct his assault. He was, as always, unfailingly courteous. "That's all then," he said after relieving cast and crew of their valuables, "innit?"
Security guards described it as the most "relaxed" robbery they had ever experienced.
