In today’s edition of news that is literally too good to make up, Captain Morgan rum is getting sued for piracy.

(We’ll just let that sink in for a minute).

American Beverage Corp. alleges that the rum drinking, I-do-what-I-want Captain Morgan ripped off its pouched, single-serve frozen cocktail design and has filed a trademark lawsuit against Morgan’s parent company.

While Daily’s Cocktails, which has been sold since 2005, encourages consumers to “Freeze and Enjoy,” Parrot Bay condones freezing and squeezing.

Pouch Pack Innovations LLC got in on the suit as well because everyone loves ganging up on a pirate.
